Try wearing Yukata in Asakusa, Tokyo

In the summer of 2018, my friend came to Japan from Russia. Her name is Daria. She is a photographer and she is also a model. We visited and photographed popular tourist spots in Tokyo, such as Shinjuku(新宿) and Asakusa(浅草)

In this article, I will introduce the tourist spots in Japan that I visited with Daria, and show the recommended sightseeing way in Tokyo.

[Feature] Sharing my trip to Shinjuku in Tokyo

Asakusa / 浅草 / あさくさ

浅草(Asakusa) is a district in Taitō, Tokyo, Japan, famous for the Sensō-ji, a Buddhist temple dedicated to the bodhisattva Kannon. Asakusa has various temples like Kyoto.

About 2 miles from Asakusa to the tallest Tokyo Sky Tree in Japan.

There is a unique Japanese festival like this. Asakusa is a must-see place in Japan.

There is no doubt that one of the highlights of Japan’s trip for tourists is to take a walk through the old town in Asakusa and wearing a traditional Japanese costume, a yukata.

What is “Yukata” ?

浴衣(The yukata) is a casual version of the kimono. It is a robe usually made of cotton or synthetic fabric, wrapped around the body and fastened with a sash (obi). Yukata literally means “bathing cloth”, and it was originally intended to be just that. Traditionally, the garment is worn after bathing in a communal bath, functioning as a quick way to cover the body and to absorb remaining moisture.

You can easily rent this yukata at tourist spots in Japan. This experience is also popular with the Japanese.

Where can tourists book? Yukata seems to be hard to wear.

If you’ve been to Japan, you’ve probably had such a trouble experience. so. most of Japanese people do not speak English.

No problem. There are staff who can speak English, Chinese, Thai, etc.

Yukata can also be rented at hotels in the city

Yukata can be used free of charge at the hotel.
