Kimono rental is one of the experiences definitely worth trying in Japan. Renting a kimono in Japan is an incredible experience. I loved it so much that I’ve tried it thrice in different regions of Japan. For a budget traveler like me, it’s not a small sum to pay, but I do think its worth it. I take a million photos and explore as much as I can so I can milk a kimono rental’s worth of photos and experiences.

Mustard colored loose sweater underneath a black and white 90’s pattern inspired overalls. Worn with my travel cape of more patterns and matched with a fishnet stocking with an aztec inspired pattern. Paired with my favorite maroon boots. To accessorize, a long wool scarf that you can put your hands into to get warm, black leather sling bag, a pair of big golden stud earrings, and a black watch. I put my hair into a loose fishtail braid to emphasize that my hair’s colors are gradually changing from the roots going to the tip.
One of my favorite places that I’ve travelled to would be Tokyo! So you can have an experience as fun as I had in that wonderful city, I present to you my Tokyo Tourist Tips!

An all white outfit. White knitted sweater with a hole and bow at the back and small pockets in front on top of a bustier dress.

The feature of this all white outfit is a very light beige (almost white) leather backpack that looks very much like a Japanese schoolbag. Hair is worn in a high ponytail and makeup is natural.
