When is it better to use a taxi for transportation when renting a kimono?

We will introduce you to the cases when it is better to use a taxi for transportation when renting a kimono, as well as some points to help you enjoy sightseeing in Kyoto more comfortably.

Can be moved without compromising the beauty of the kimono

Kimono is delicate and may get dirty or wrinkled while walking. By using a taxi, you can reduce walking distance and travel to your destination while preserving the beauty of your kimono.

For those who want to make effective use of their time

Kyoto is dotted with sightseeing spots, so efficient transportation is required.

Traveling between sightseeing spots will be smoother, allowing you to enjoy them with more time to spare.

It also serves as a countermeasure against seasons and weather.

Kyoto offers beautiful scenery throughout the four seasons, but depending on the season and weather, it may be difficult to go out in a kimono. To avoid rain, snow, or heat, you can travel comfortably by taking a taxi. The advantage is that it can flexibly respond to changes in weather and temperature.

You can move without worrying about your luggage or accessories.

While sightseeing, you may carry around cameras, valuables, souvenirs, etc. By using a taxi, you can move around in a comfortable space without having to worry about your luggage. You can also enjoy small items and accessories that match your kimono without falling apart.

Survey by interviewing drivers for tourist information
