Mass-Trans Innovation Japan 2015

We were very outstanding while many people in business attire come and go.

Some people asked why we wore kimono as they passed. Another people asked for photo with us. We were very grateful for the visitor’s response.

The company intended to impress customers by kimono receptionist. Many people became interested in that booth. Some staff said that this also lead to an image improvement of the company.

We differentiate ourselves by offering services in Kimono. It was well – received.  We would be very happy if there is anything we could help with.

We will continue to devote ourselves to the heart of hospitality.

Thank you very much for this opportunity!


A “Kitsune-no Yu-suzumi” report



with Byakko-shu in Oji-inari

“Kitsune no Yu-suzumi” event took place in Oji, Kita-ku, Tokyo.
“Byakko-syu” invited us to join  the event and we participated in that for the first time.

It was rainy unfortunately and the weather turned got worse than weather forecast, but we kept going through the street around the Oji-station: from Asuka-yama to Oji Inari-shrine.

We gave “Kitsune-Girei” to Oji Inari-shrine with the aim of the event. The “Girei” was like a march but not like soldiers’ steps, very quiet, less actions, and slowly. We chose the theme of the “Kitsune-Girei” from an anecdote, “The Fox Marriage”. You might be able to find the bride in the picture.

Besides the solemn procession, “Byakko-syu” never stopped the dance to bounce up and down with light steps. “Byakko-syu” was organized people who have a strong will to take over the belief in “Oinarisan”. Many elementary kids are active in that.

On the Asuka-yama stage, the performance began from “The dance of foxes”
Kitsune Odori in Asukayama

and “kitsune-girei”,Susumi-Girei in Asukayama

also “The Mother and The Daughter Fox”, Japanese dance, performance introduced with Makoto and Tsuge’s song and play.

We really appreciate to the people involve the event and thank again for the invitation to the festival in Feb 6th, Oji Inari-Shrine. We are going to see you again on the day.

Artistic Night



On March 14th, we, kimono dreamers and samurai club, appeared on the stage of Artistic Tokyo organized by Bonjour Tokyo.
Bonjour Tokyo held fun events on a regular basis.  Mr. Julien Tirode, who is good friend of mine by the way, is the representative of the community.


The venue is Laschicas House. It is very fashionable and the perfect place to gather. ↑
We brought some bamboo swords and kimonos because we wanted guests to feel close to Japanese culture.


We provide Uchikake Kimono experience at one corner. We concerned foreigner guests about shoes off area. But everybody understood that for us. (You sure are an expert!)
Samurai club explained how to handle sword to male guests and took commemorative photos.
I wish I could do the action of brandishing a sword if there is a room for it.


Unexpectedly, the uchikake kimono experience was very popular not only to foreigner guests but also to Japanese guests.
(This is fun for sure!)


What is more, kimono dreamers gave Japanese dance performances.


The time flew by,
The party was over.
We were very busy which means it was a great success… we guess
