It was a great pleasure to shop
at your store. The kimono came in beautifully, wrapped with attention
and care. Thank you for the sweetest personal touches to the package,
the hand-written note was so kind and the extra welcome was so
generous.I look forward to shopping again with you in the future.
My warmest wishes to everyone at Shimazakura,

Thank you very much, my winter samue is exactly what I was looking for, and fits very well. It will be perfect for the Canadian weather. I especially enjoyed the personal note and the very nice gift. Impeccable service and friendly staff. Again, thank you.

I always browsed Shimazakura looking for information about the different types of kimono and obi,
but i never really looked the items in their store. Other websites that sell kimono are based in Japan.

They have higher prices on certain items and the shipping fee makes it even more expensive.
I finally decided to look, and I discovered that Shimazakura has very reasonably priced kimono,
especially the antique kimono. The items I ordered arrived on time and in great condition.
I also really appreciated the hand written note in the package.
I will definitely be making future purchases with Shimazakura.

Shimazakura is now officially one of my favorite places to go for kimono items.
Great prices, and a good selection. Shimazakura is located in the state right
next to mine, so shipping only took two days! My kimono arrived just as described
on the site, and I am excited to wear it for Christmas. The customer service is
so friendly - the handwritten note thanking me for my purchase was so sweet!
Thank you also for the tabi socks!
Emily san, South Carolina / U.S.A - 12/2012
I searched for DAYS trying to find a Jinbei in my size to purchase. I finally found a large selection here.
When I received it, it was perfect! Exactly what I wanted! Hight quality and well made. Thanks guys!
You will be my "go-to" store for Japanese clothing from now on!
Oh, did I mention fast shipping and delivery? Yes, that was excellent also!
John san / U.S.A - 09/2012
I ordered the Girl's red Heko Obi, and it was truly beautiful! The site is full of wonderful information
about kimonos, and after I bought my item, I was kept updated the entire way about my package and
its whereabouts. I was shocked at how quickly it was shipped, and when I did receive it, I couldn't help
but smile at the sweet, handwritten note thanking me for my purchase and to come back again soon
(not to mention a 10% coupon if I took a picture of my yukata and a partial refund of my purchase!).
The people of Shimazakura are very kind, pleasant people to do business with,
and I will surely come back again!

I just received my Blue LL Samue. I was concerned that it would be too small but it actually fits very well
and seems to be true to listed size. It is nicely made and exceeds my expectations. It is a great value
for the price. Thank you.
Jim san / U.S.A - 02/2012
I wanted to write how wonderful your customer service is. I appreciate how honest you are with describing
each item for sale and photos included. I tend to write and ask before I purchase an item that is lower than
a "C" rank. But I have no regrets with all my purchases from you! I was really impressed with how lovely
my recent purchased items were. And I have shared with my friends that you are a US seller of kimono
goods (very hard to find). Also I loved my special gift, thank you kindly!
Bethanee Couch san / U.S.A - 01/2011
I purchased a discountinued Hanhaba obi from you guys in June 2010. I checked the critics on a website
I belong to: Immortal Geisha, and I received rave reviews about it matching my blue Yukata. It wasn't just
the look of the outfit I liked, but the fact that shipping was done quickly and that the obi came on my
birthday. In fact, the service was wonderful to the point that they found a small tear in the bag before I did.
The tear didn't bother me at all, but I was refunded part part of my payment for the trouble.
I don't have any good pictures to share, but the service was wonderful, and I would shop here again
for more accessories.

こんにちは しまざくら！ I have never been more excited when it comes to shopping online
when I received my yukata parts from Shimazakura! I was able to receive everything in time for the
Natsu Matsuri this past July, and I was in style. Another think that I liked about my online shopping
experience was how personal they would make my order. They would actually hand write a letter to me
saying how appreciate they were to have me as a customer. I have already made two orders here and am
very pleased with both! Not only was everything in pristine condition, but Shimazakura even makes the
shipping box colorful with stamped, little pink flowers. I feel that this online store really cares their
customers, and I would encourage anyone who is looking for kimono/yukata apparel to shop here.
Simone san Birmingham, Alabama / U.S.A - 08/2010
So many beautiful kimono to choose from and at sffordable prices! The customer service is great and the
shipping is the most realiable and quick I have ever seen. Packaged with care each box is like a present.
Karen E. san Durham NH / U.S.A - 07/2010
I am big fun of your service and products. I can count on the time of delivery and quality of your products.
Customer service is excellent.
Summy san MI / U.S.A - 07/2010
I ordered a few items from Shimazakura after my local kimono shop tried to sell me similar item for three
times the price. My purchase was shipped immediately and the items were of excellent quality. I mentioned
on my order form that there was item I could not find, and I quickly received an e-mail from Shimazakura
suggesting a better item. I have already made a second purchase from Shimazakura and intend on
continuing business with them in the future.
Nicole san San Jose, CA / U.S.A - 06/2010
I am so pleased with my order. The yukata and obi were beautiful. Shipping was extremely fast.
I ordered it on a Friday after 2:30pm and it was delivered the following Monday. I could not ask for better
service. You have a customer for life.
S.B san Virginia / U.S.A - 06/2010
I have received my little bag with pleasure, I wanted to thank you for the fan. It was very kind of you and
I just needed ne for my yukata :) thanks again.
Marjorie san France - 07/2009
I enjoyed the koshihimo. It came in handy when I tied my yukata. It works better than normal fabric.
It wraps twice around my body, and fits well. If you want kimono or yukata to fit well, koshihimo is important.
Christy san NM / U.S.A - 07/2009
Yes I have received the items or rather my family did as it was a gift for them. They love it so much and
they looked really cute in it as well. I want to thank you and your team for such a great kimono and also
thank you for the free folding fan. It has been a pleasure to be a customer of yours and I look forward to
purchasing more items from your store. If this will be posted on your website I just want to let anyone
reading this comment know that I would really recommend this store as they not only have great items
but they are very friendly, honest and polite as well. Keep up the good work.
Gie san United Arab Emirates - 11/2008
Yes! Order was shipped very quickly! Only thing I would suggest is more product to chose from. Other
than that it's great!Service was excellent! No problems, whatsoever! The items I ordered were neatly
packaged to insure they weren't damaged during shipment. Items were shipped very quickly once payment
was processed. I am very happy with my purchase at Shimazakura! The yukata I ordered is beautiful! I was
very impressed with the quality of merchandise. Fabric is very nice & of high quality!
Amy san Las Vegas, NV / U.S.A - 11/2008
We are very happy to receive your order so quickly. Your website is very easy to use and your service is
wonderful. Product is great! One this I wish is if you can expand the selection of material for kids size.
Yo Graham san MI / U.S.A - 09/2008
When speaking of where to purchase traditional Japanese clothing, Shimazakurais your ONE STOP SHOP! Recently purchased a women's geta, yukata, and tsukuriobi set. Not only was the Japanese attire authentic
and meticulously made it is altogether GORGEOUS! Customer service is FABULOUS answering all of my
emails PROMPTLY and in a very kind and professional manner. The shipping was extremely FAST and the packaging superb. I am more than ELATED over finding such a treasure as Shimazakura and will return
again and again. THANK YOU!!

I would definitely order from them again!
Michelle san Chicago, IL / U.S.A - 08/2008
I am very happy with the service I received when ordering from Shimazakura. My order was prompt and
in pristine condition when I received everything. I look forward to ordering from them in the future.
A.M san Pensacola, FL / U.S.A - 07/2008
I just got the Men's Yukata set I order. As for the product itself, it is also great. It is packed beautifully and I don't see any problem so far. In addition, I asked them for some information on the product before, and they replied me in a quick, patient and professional manner. I will definitely shop here again!!
