Try on an exquisite kimono with the help of an expert dresser
The kimono is central in Japanese traditional dress; an instantly recognisable symbol of the country. At the ryokan, you can meet Shiraiwa-san, a master kimono instructor with over 25 years experience. She will help you dress in a beautiful kimono (both men and women's kimono are available). A professional photographer will be on hand to snap you looking your very best.
