If you’ve been looking for the perfect blend of Japanese and Western fashion, there is no better epitome than the Taisho Roman kimono style which has grown in popularity over the last few years.
Bold prints on fabric paired with non-traditional kimono accessories such as hats, gloves, lace, heels and stockings make the Taisho Roman kimono style an irresistible choice to any present day fashionista.
If you’ve been itching to try the style, Hotel Gajoen Tokyo has just released a special experience allowing participants to enjoy lunch or afternoon tea whilst wearing a retro-style kimono from their rental collection.
There are over 50 different kimonos and obi available in the rental collection. Furthermore, with the added selection of geta, bags, hair ornaments and lace accessories, participants will have more than 2,500 fashion combination to choose from – we know, that sounds like a lot, but the staff will be there to help you match the perfect patterns, fit and combinations to your own personal style.
Just as it is with any kimono style, a lot of emphasis is put on the obi belt, which is said to bring the image together as a whole. At the Hotel Gajoen Tokyo Taisho Roman experience, participants have the option to select either a “regular” Taisho Roman style obi, or for a more unorthodox look, pair the kimono with a traditional Japanese Nagoya obi belt.
