Konnichiwa, Thank you for the prompt service during this difficult time of C-19. Due to social distancing the summer events were canceled, so I decided to celebrate at home keeping the tradition alive in honor or Obaasan. My beautiful new Yukata and Obi arrived and couldn't wait to wear it! I tried my Obi in a new way to show off the elegant flower at the end of Obi.

I just received the
jinbei and samui I purchased from Shimazakura, and I am so pleased! The
quality is amazing and wonderful. My husband and his twin(my
brother-in-law) are celebrating their 29th birthday on the 27th of
October, and their birthday presents arrived well in advance.They
both love Japan and Japanese culture, and have often mentioned how they
admire Japanese leisure-wear and traditional outdoor work-wear.My
husband traveled to Japan for the first time last year, and he spent
almost 30 days traveling from Narita to Hokkaido, then down to Fukuoka
and Nagasaki. He visited shrines, temples, Universal Studios in Osaka,
and spent most of his time hiking and camping outdoors. He enjoyed
staying in hostels and he even stayed in a capsule hotel! He
loved Motohakone most of all, as it reminded him of mountain town in
the animated film Kimi no Na Wa. He took so many pictures, and we are
dedicating an entire scrapbook photo album to his trip! I
have loved Japanese culture and history since I was a young girl, and I
am so happy my husband loves it, too. I did not travel with him last
year, as my job did not allow me to have a vacation.I
became pregnant this year, and we are expecting our first child—a
boy!—on November 25th. We are planning to take an international trip
from Colorado, USA to Japan next year, around the time our baby is 1
year old.I am most
assuredly planning to purchase more clothing from Shimazakura in
preparation for our baby’s 1st birthday and I cannot contain my
excitement and anticipation for our trip to Japan next year.
Much love from Colorado,

Hello! My name is Yicong, I'm currently living in Portland, Oregon. At these days, Cherry blossom trees are blooming so well at Portland. I really want to take a shot with those pretty sakura, and that's why I purchased my first yukata set "Ohanami" at Shimazakura. This was a wonderful experience of shopping kimono, the pattern of it is very cute. I like the color of my "Ohanami," and I think the quality is very good as well. All of my friends said that this yukata looked so pretty on me. So I'm here sharing these photos to you. And, thank you, Shimazakura! I'll definetly come back and buy more kimonos!

Shimazakura team, Thank you so much for adding a personal touch to my shopping experience! Tha shipping was really fast! I really appreciate the hand written note and gift! It is the perfect gift to go with my yukata! The koshihimo matched nicely and it is a great quality! I cannot wait to wear it this summer! Great communication and very accommodating. I hope to be a repeating customer and hopefully I can catch more items before they are "sold out"! You have very nice selections and it would be nice if you can stock more tabi socks!

Hello! My name is Arli Sierra and I live in California, United States. I've been wanting to wear a Kimono or Yukata since forever! I finally was able to get a Kimono in Los Angeles but I wasn't able to find a Obi sash and than I find this online shop! I have to say, the products here are simply beautiful! Not only that, but this place is really great with giving out information, responding to questions, and even shipping! I didn' t have to wait even five days and I already was able to receive my Obi sash! Needless to say, I am very happy with my product. Even that small handwritten letter they sent with the package just made my day even better~ Five Golden stars to this shop!~ I will come back and buy from this shop again!~

Hi! This is my newest kimono, it is beautiful lavender with wave patterns woven into it. I started taking Japanese Dance two years ago, its so much fun! Its wonderful to have such a reliable place to find kimonos and accessories in the US! Thanks

This is my first yukata and I didn't wear it wrong. The reason it looks like right over left is because I take the picture from the mirror =P My yukata has pink, black, and white cherry blossoms with a black/red obi. I didn't have a full photo shot for the whole out fit because no one wants to take a picture of me lol

Hello,When I purchased a jinbei for my daughter this summer, I received a friendly note asking to send back a photo of her. Her is a photo of my daughter Beatrix at the Obon at the Oregon Buddhist Temple in Portland, OR. She is nine-months old in this photo. Thank you for selling such beautiful items! arigato,
Tara san / USA
I live in the high desert (7,400feet) in Santa Fe New Mexico, and the Jinbei is perfect for afternoon and evening wear around the house, patio, or immediate compound of houses in the late spring, summer, and early fall.

Here are some photos of the kimono I bought from you guys a while ago. It was used in a small theatrical performance. Mostly I use it as reference material while I am trying to design, make, and sew my own kimono for a 42 year old male, 5'7", weighing 250#....quite a challenge.
Michael san / GA USA
It is outstanding set of clothing! I definitely look forward to doing more business with you all. Arigato!

Yukata for Halloween? I was passing out candy this past year for Halloween and I seriously didn't have anything else to wear so I grabbed my yukata and stuck a robe under it to keep me warm. Believe it or not, it gets cold in Arizona!
