shine! Collection of popular plans for couples at Kyoto Yukata rental shop

Wear a yukata and enjoy walking around the city while feeling the good old atmosphere of Kyoto. Yukata rental is essential for couples to enjoy such a special experience. This time, I would like to introduce yukata rental shops in Kyoto that are recommended for couples, including the Waplus Kyoto Yasaka Shrine store where I actually work, as well as popular plans. We will also share some tips on how to spend a wonderful day, so please use them to create memories in Kyoto.

Waplus Kyoto Yasaka Shrine store

As the name suggests, Waplus Kyoto Yasaka Shrine store is located right next to Yasaka Shrine and has excellent access to tourist spots. For couples, the “Yukata Pair Plan” is especially popular. With this plan, you can rent not only yukata for men and women, but also obi and accessories. In addition, professional staff will take care of everything from dressing to hair styling, bringing out each couple’s charm to the fullest. We also provide a map of Yasaka Shrine and nearby photogenic spots, ensuring an unforgettable day.

Kyoto Station Kimono Rental Beauty

“Kyoto Ekimae Kimono Rental Beauty” is easy to visit, with immediate access from Kyoto Station. Here, the “Deluxe Yukata Plan”, which can be used by couples, is popular. This plan includes a high-quality yukata and carefully selected obi, and an optional photo shoot service by a professional photographer. You can capture special memories in photos amidst the beautiful scenery of Kyoto.

Kimono Hanakyo

Kimono Hanakyo is a shop located in the center of Kyoto that carries a wide variety of yukata. For couples, we recommend the “All-You-Can-Choose Yukata Plan.” With this plan, you can freely choose any yukata in the store and enjoy creating your own original coordination. In addition, after dressing in the kimono, you can also rent a bicycle to tour the surrounding ancient capital, making it perfect for exploring every nook and cranny of Kyoto.

Kyoto Yukata date tips for couples

– Advance reservations: Advance reservations are recommended, as the venue is expected to be crowded, especially during the tourist season.
– Sense of a matching look: When choosing a yukata, it is best to respect each other’s opinions and enjoy it as if it were a matching look. Pairing them with similar colors and patterns creates a unified look.
– Use accessories: Make a difference by using accessories. Men can wear fans, and women can wear hairpins or drawstring purses to enhance their yukata.
– Research photo spots: If you make a list of photo spots you want to visit in advance, you can efficiently leave beautiful memories.


A yukata date in Kyoto will be a special experience that will deepen your bond. You can spend an unforgettable day by taking advantage of the plans for couples offered by each shop, including the Waplus Kyoto Yasaka Shrine branch we introduced this time. The sight of them wearing yukata against the backdrop of Kyoto’s historic streets will surely be etched deep in their memories. Make the best Kyoto yukata date possible with advance preparation and consideration.


By wearing the traditional beauty that colors the city of Kyoto, you may be able to discover a different version of yourself than usual. Rent a kimono or yukata and enjoy exploring Kyoto to the fullest.
