Our Philosophy

Give a second life to that kimono that is sleeping in your chest of drawers.
We keep them because we have precious memories connected with them. That is why we offer you to use it, to keep it alive by giving them a second life.
We are not a rental service where you won't even know how and by whom your precious kimono is used. At i-kasu, we let the professionals (stylists and shooting crew) use the kimono in professional shootings. 
 
Your kimono doesn't have to be high-class and beautifully decorated to be a part of i-kasu. It doesn't matter if it shows some signs of aging. Because there are various roles and various movie scenes, there are many cases when the pieces that seem to be in use are more requestable because they look more natural in daily scenes.
 
You are the one who decides the price you want to lend your kimono. Only the owner knows the true emotional value of the kimono. If you are in doubt, please refer to other kimonos on this site or contact us using the inquiry form. The actual price we put on site will be your desired rent fee plus i-kasu commission.
 
There is an option to register your kimono in i-kasu and leave it in your chest of drawers before it is required for shooting, and an option to have it totally managed at i-kasu. Of course, all the options are free of charge and don't require any annual charge or entry charge. Please check the details of the options below. If you have any questions or concerns, please use the inquiry form to contact us.

What you can register at i-kasu

Everything that is traditional Japanese clothes. We are happy to give second life to your old, damaged, and casual pieces as well. Kimonos, belts, coats, accessories, shoes, bags, yukatas, etc.
