Who said yukata cost a lot?

Much lighter than the kimono, the yukata is an essential item of clothing for the summer season. Whether it is to go admire the fireworks or simply to enjoy a matsuri, many Japanese wear it when the good weather returns. However, this little piece of cotton comes at a certain cost. Between the yukata itself, the obi that accompanies it, and the accessories that enhance the outfit, being fashionable in Japan is an investment! And especially in Tokyo, where prices are generally higher than in the rest of the archipelago. To be able to fully enjoy the clothing traditions of the summer without leaving too many yen, here are a few tips for getting an inexpensive yukata in the capital.

The sets of major brands

Sets are always a good idea to save a few yen!

With prices ranging from 3000 to 6000 yen (between $26-52 and 47-94€), these yukata ''all-inclusive '' (Yukata + Obi + Geta) are a good way to dress for summer cheaply.

Very popular, we then found everywhere in art bazaars and 100 yen shops, such as Don Q Quijote, but also in some loan stores to wear as Uniqlo, which each year offer u new five or six models collection for men and women. S highly anticipated collection of s who like hot-cakes when summer arrives!
