The City of Kyoto designated the Spring Equinox Day as the “Traditional Industry Day” in 2001 in order to spread the charms of skills of Kyoto’s master craftsmen throughout Japan as well as the world. These skills have been cultivated in the course of 1200 years of its history. This year, various events are scheduled in Kyoto, during the period before and after this day.
In addition, persons wearing kimono can enter a lot of facilities including many museums, Nijo Castle, Heian Jingu Shrine (the precincts of a shrine), Kyoto City Zoo, and Kyoto Botanical Garden by using the fee ticket for free of charge.
You will be able to get the free ticket at ‘Kyoto Kimono Rental Rei’. For the details, please visit the website.
