Sakura Hostel Asakusa has just started a new and limited service "Yukata Rental" in summer!


-What is a YUKATA?-
A YUKATA is a casual, single-layered cotton kimono, usually worn in summer.
It's not very expensive and it's easy to wear.
It used to be worn as a kind of bathrobe in the past.
However, people started to wear one when they go to informal events
such as summer festivals and firework displays in the Edo period.
If you spend summer in Japan, you cannot go home without dressing in YUKATA!
