Akahime offers the four types of return service.
①Same day return
The guests who select the free time plan are required to return kimono by 30 min. before the closing time of the shop. The guests of two hour plan are required to return kimono by the specified time at the shop.
②Other Shop Return ¥1,500 per person
Since Akahime has two shops in the area of Arashiyama and one in Kiyomizu-Gojo, we can offer the service of the other shop return. You would save time since you don’t have to go back to the shop where you got dressed and would spend more time and go further for sightseeing.
③Next Day Return ¥1,000 per person
Please spend the whole day for sightseeing and return your kimono by 12 p.m. next day at the same shop
④An example of the next day return
You could return your kimono at your hotel if it is within the city of Kyoto without going back the shop you got dressed. We deliver your belongings by 20 p.m. to your hotel. Please leave your kimono at the front desk of the hotel by 10 a.m. next day.
If you do not return by the specified return time, ¥1,000 per day is charged as an overdue fee. As for high-grade kimonos the overdue fee is ¥4,000 per day. Please take it into consideration when you decide your return service.
All guests who take advantage of the return service are required ¥10,000 as a deposit (the credit card not acceptable). We will repay it to you when you return your kimono. There is a case we might ask your passport or driver’s license when you rent a kimono.
