Kimono Experience at Kaneyu

Categories:   Traditional, Things to Do, Must do

Kaneyu is a historical restaurant that served the elite back in the day. During the heyday of Noshiro City’s lumber industry, it was a popular place for important business meetings. Business deals would be made while drinking sake and eating extravagant meals.

Today, guests can try on a kimono (or a yukata during summer) and learn more about Japanese culture through a guided tour of the facility. The Japanese-style architecture, made with 200-year-old Akita cedar coupled with a traditional garden, is the perfect place to walk around and take pictures.

Both men and women kimonos (and yukatas) are available for selection. Guided tours are available in both Japanese and simple English for an additional 300 yen. Moreover, visitors can enjoy a traditional Japanese (Akita-style) lunch with reservation. Reservations can be made by phone and/or email.
