Want to dress up for the event?

Check out this crazy inexpensive yukata and kimono shop! Normally for a whole outfit it could cost you $300 plus but here you can get the same things and better quality for less than $100 with all the accessories.

The shopkeeper is very nice and welcoming to international students but does not speak English.  She also knows a lot about how to wear the clothing and what things should go with what to make beautiful sets.

The shop is closed on Tuesdays.

Check out the pictures of the shop!
