Super cool thrift store in Kyoto. In the basement, they have your regular thrift store clothing, but in the level above, they have all things secondhand kimonos/yakutas, etc. There are prices for every buyer, so you can go expensive or you can go as cheap as something like $13 I think. I got a kimono, a yakuta, and four obis for $126, which is an absolute steal considering what you rent kimonos for. The only caveat is that they don't really have sizes for bigger people (or rather, wider people). It seems that you have to be somewhat skinny to have the kimono/yakuta close. However, there are other clothing options that are more inclusive and can hang open as a sort of cardigan thing. Overall, I really liked this thrift shop and highly recommend it for your budget kimono buyer.
Really awesome Vintage finds, really love my Lee denim shirt dress and especially the 2 aprons 😍 prices were really reasonable too.
Supposedly used to be a good, decently priced thrift store/kimono store. Is no longer decently priced, at least on the kimono side of things. Additionally, I purchased a kimono aware that it had some minor stains and was willing to fix that myself but when I took it back to the hotel and opened it up for closer inspection I noticed the sleeves had burn marks going through them. Would have been nice if it was marked on the tag. Would not come here again overall.
Kyoto is filled with amazing thrift stores, but this is a must visit. Not only does the shop look neat and organised, there's a wonderful floor dedicated to pre- loved kimonos and such. That collection is massive, so you can go nuts. The prices are very reasonable. Definitely worth a visit.
This shop is a good option if you want to buy typical Japanese clothes but not expecting too much. They have a lot of different patterns and colours. Tip: The section of "New arrivals" might be a bit more expensive but the clothes there are much more beautiful. I think it worth it. Workers don't bother you but if you ask they help you to try the clothes if you don't know how to do it yourself.
