Summer in Tokyo is full of festivities, from matsuri at temples to firework festivals, and there’s no better way to get the full experience than wearing a yukata, a traditional Japanese garment. A yukata is more casual and comfortable than a kimono, and is generally worn during the hotter months. Most kimono rental shops also have plenty of yukata to choose from, and rental plans come with a fitting and hairstyling (sometimes at an extra cost). Check out the following rental stores that will get you fitted in a yukata and help you get ready to explore Tokyo, whether it’s to go to a festival or stroll the streets in style.

Vasara is Japan’s largest kimono rental shop, with nine locations in Tokyo, three of which are in Asakusa. They also have locations in bustling areas like Shinjuku, Shibuya and Akihabara, so you can get into a yukata in the location that’s most convenient for you. Vasara accepts reservations online with English support. It also has a variety of plans to choose from, with yukata rental options starting at ¥3,630.
