◇Kobayashi Gofukuten◇
Japan’s biggest kimono retailer,
but also its humblest kimono retailer.

Since its establishment in 1966 (Showa 41) in Kyoto Fushimi, which is known as the kimono center, this shop makes kimono accessible to everyone and conveys the traditions of Japan and the compassion and kind hearts of the Japanese people.
Whatever you need, our service is a cut above the rest.
For instance, the Gion Festival every July in Kyoto.
Young women who are unaccustomed to wearing geta with yukata come from all over the country to this festival. Sometimes we see them walking barefoot after their sandal straps slipped. In those cases, we give them bandaids.
A little consideration is a gratifying thing. We always strive for this kind of service to help make our guests’ day even a little bit better.
