If you've ever watched a slice-of-life anime, you're an avid fan of J-Dramas, or just huge on Japanese culture, you know there's nothing more essential for the Japanese people than dressing up in a Summer Kimono for a summer matsuri (Japanese Festival). During your vacation with Japan Deluxe Tours, you can enjoy a day of cosplay, or dressing up, in a beautiful Summer Kimono (or Yukata) during select festival tours. If a Yukata seems a bit much, you can also opt for a happi coat instead.
The perfect experience during the Kyoto Gion Festival, dress as the locals do and take on the yatai food booths for authentic Japanese foods (Try: Okonomiyaki or Takoyaki). Take photos of your cosplay/outfit while playing summer festival games like your favorite anime characters do.
