Arriving at Kakunodate Station
[11:00] Tatetsuya tried on a traditional kimono.
Visited Tatetsu house which is about a 15 minute walk from Kakunodate Station.
Tried on kimono here.
First step after choosing your antique kimono is getting your hair done.
They have hair pins, rubber, hair ornaments, spray, brushes and such ready for you.
They don't have curling irons or coating, so if you need it, I recommend you bring your own.
The attendants will give advise on colors and combinations if you would like.
Rest assured, they have winter essentials on hand during the cold months.
Choose an antique Kimono
After your hair is done, they will put the kimono on you.
