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.
