What is Kimonogeisha.com?
Kimonogeisha.com was born, when we, lovers of Japan, kitsuke and geisha/geiko culture searched for good information about these things around the internet, but didn’t really find anything that satisfied us. Secondly, there was no easy way to buy NEW kimono and yukata from Japan. The only thing you can find are websites which deal with antiques, second-hand kimono or small shops with websites from the 90s and really limited inventory. But what if you are interesting in what’s going on today? If you want to have a kimono with a new and fresh style?
So we thought: We can do this better! Let’s open a kitsuke web portal and kimono & yukata online shop!
And here we are. We started as a general portal for everything surrounding kitsuke, kimono and yukata information and Japanese culture and language, but now are finally opening the doors of our kimono online shop, as we have everything set up in the way it needs to be.
