Applications Closed:【Kimono】A 90-minute experience of beautiful Japanese culture【Free Online Event】

Applications Closed

The kimono is one of the symbols of Japanese culture. Many people would like to wear a kimono when they travel to Japan and stroll the streets.

When you hear the word "kimono," you probably think of the colourful furisode (振袖:long-sleeved kimono). However, do you know that there are various types of kimono, not only furisode, and that you need to wear the right type of kimono depending on the occasion?

The more you know about kimonos, the more you will be fascinated by them.

In February 2023, FUN! JAPAN will host an online event featuring a kimono expert!

The event is recommended for those who are interested in kimono culture and have daily conversational level Japanese language skills.

The guests will not speak one-sidedly, but will ask questions to the participants and receive questions from them, so you can use the event as an opportunity to test your own Japanese language skills.

And the event is FREE! All you need is 5,000 FUN! JAPAN points, and if you don't have any, don't worry, you can get 5,000 points just by registering with FUN! JAPAN.

This online event will be held jointly by FUN! JAPAN and Yamato, a kimono specialty store established in 1917. With over 100 years of history, Yamato is well known for its willingness to create not only traditional kimonos, but also innovative kimonos in collaboration with popular manga artists and popular apparel brands.


The venue for the online event is "THE YARD", a beautiful kimono store in Shibuya, Tokyo, operated by Yamato. Ms. Miwako Hagihara, a kimono advisor with extensive knowledge of kimono, will be the guest speaker, communicating with participants in simple Japanese.


Usually, the knowledge you gain from online kimono lessons is mainly about how to wear a kimono. However, our online kimono event is a little different from other kimono lessons.

By participating in our online kimono event, you will learn about the cultural aspects of kimono that you may not get from other online lessons, such as the types of kimono, trivia about the kimono, and Japanese words derived from the kimono.

The 90 minute event will include the following topics:.

  • Furisode, Houmongi, Momen, etc... Types and characteristics of kimono, suitable occasions to wear each kimono
  • How to wear kimono? Items necessary for wearing kimono
  • Manners and What not to do when wearing kimono
  • Trivia about Kimono
    What is "Kamon" embroidered on a kimono?
    Let's learn names and meanings of colors in Japanese through kimono
    How many do you know? Japanese words derived from Kimono
  • Q&A


The event will be conducted using simple Japanese and there will be no simultaneous interpretation. We recommend that people whose Japanese level is above daily conversation level participate. If you are not very confident in "speaking" Japanese, just listening is fine!

FUN! JAPAN staff who understand English will be present at the event and will provide support as needed.


Participants will receive a 10% discount coupon for use at after the event! The online store sells not only kimonos but also many beautiful accessories such as hair ornaments.
