The difference is obvious with Kyoto Yukata rental! How to wear a yukata to make you look slimmer


Walking around Kyoto’s beautiful scenery wearing a yukata is a special experience for many people. However, did you know that there are other ways to look slimmer than just wearing a yukata? In this article, as someone who works at a rental shop in Kyoto and is well versed in kimono and yukata rentals, I will introduce how to choose and wear a yukata that will make you look neater. In particular, we will make your Kyoto stroll more beautiful and comfortable by highlighting recommended points, including rentals at Waplus Kyoto Yasaka Shrine Store.

Points when choosing a yukata

– Color selection: Choosing a deep color rather than a bright color will give you a cleaner overall look. Recommended colors include navy blue, black, and deep green.


– Size and placement of the pattern: Smaller patterns or patterns that emphasize vertical lines will have the effect of making you look slimmer than larger overall patterns.


– How to tie the obi: A simple single obi knot will make your waist look neater. Also, if you place the obi a little higher, you can also expect the effect of lengthening your legs.

How to dress

– Appropriate size: Choose a yukata that is the right size for your body shape. If it’s too big, it will look bulky.


– How to choose geta: The key is to choose geta that are tall enough to make your feet look neat. The longer your legs look, the better your overall balance will be.


– Use of accessories: Use obi-jime and obi-dome to add accents to create a tighter overall look.
