Two plans will be offered, including the standard yukata plan for both male and female guests (JPY5,400 per guest) and the premium yukata plan for female guests (JPY7,000 per guest). Both plans include traditional Japanese accessories including “geta” shoes, “kanzashi” ornamental hair combs, and “kinchaku” handbags. Reservations for this experience program will begin being taken from June 13, 2017 at the JTB Sunrise Tours desk within our hotel and via the website. The rental yukatas and assistance in wearing them will be provided at the “Keio Department Store Costume Office” located on the third floor of the hotel. Also, staff will help guests take photographs at scenic photographic spots within our hotel before leaving the hotel to enjoy various destinations around Tokyo dressed in yukata.

The fact that overseas visitors from over 100 different countries account for approximately 75% of total guests is a reflection of the Keio Plaza Hotel’s efforts to make guests’ stays as comfortable and enjoyable as possible through the provision of various Japanese cultural experience programs, including live “koto” Japanese harp performances, Japanese craft exhibitions, and tea ceremonies, in addition to complimentary Wi-Fi, exchange for 14 different foreign currencies and other services. The “Easy Kimono (Yukata) Experience Plan” has been created in response to the popularity of the “Japanese Wedding Kimono Experience Plan” started in October 2015 and to provide guests with a more casual way to experience traditional Japanese fashion.
