There is no better place than Kyoto to experience the ritual and allure of wearing a traditional Kimono, complete with accessories and beauty regimen. And while the process of getting dressed up is one to be experienced in itself, our recommendation is to combine it with a special dinner or outing in town – each a perfect occasion for some photos and immersion into the seductive charms long bestowed to our venerable city.
Let our team take care of the details so you can enjoy the ritual in Four Seasons style. Relax in the comforts of your room with a glass of champagne while a style expert from one of the city’s finest purveyors presents you with your choice of robes. Admire the delicate fabrics and fine details as each robe was picked to befit the season. Next, make your choice of accessories, with the sash or obi being of utmost importance and a defining detail that expresses your mood and personal style!
Once your selection complete, it’s time to get dressed. Not only will the stylist expertly dress you and arrange your hair, but will also provide insight into the best way to wear your Kimono so that you are comfortable moving. Next, sit back and relax as your hair and make-up are taken care of for the most relaxing and enjoyable experience.
As you head out to town, don’t forget to stop by the hotel’s beautiful 800-year-old Shakusui-en pond and the Tea House for the most memorable photos!
