The kawaii (cute) kimono is perfect for springtime, especially with cherry blossom season on the way! The kimono is a significant part of Japanese fashion! Over the years, many people have worn kawaii kimono and yukata and retained the sophistication and grace of a national costume.
Let’s take a look at some suggestions for kawaii kimono! You may need them someday.
This kimono is gorgeous and eye-catching! The hologram is a calm tone suitable for young people and those who love sweet sparkles. Holographic textures have good reflective properties with bright colors and create fanciful 3D images. This cute color combination has been trending and striking for many clothing and fashion accessories in recent years.
So, why not try on a holographic kimono? Indeed, you’ll stand out in a traditional kimono like that, and Gofukuyasan is a unique place to find one. More unique than most other holographic items, the material Gofukuyasan’s kimono uses is not holographic foil but rather hologram-printed fabrics.
Even so, the kimono is still shiny and stunning by recreating the contrast of light and combining the dominant colors of holographic art on the fabric. Furthermore, Gofukuyasan also provides customers with holographic kimono models for both awase (including body lining) and hitoe (unlined).
There’s no doubt that animal print outfits are super cute, so kimono is no exception. Nowadays, you can easily find traditional-style kimonos with animal prints such as koi fish, usagi-chan (bunny), and neko-chan (kitty).
Silk fabrics covered with funny animal motifs create kawaii kimonos for kids in Japan. Then this is one of the traditional Japanese costume choices that will make you more adorable.
In addition, wearing a kimono with pictures of your animated childhood friends is also a great choice! Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, or even Donald Duck. One or all of these Disney characters can appear on your kawaii kimono and immerse you in the world of your childhood.

The highlight of a kimono set is always the obi (a cloth belt worn with the kimono). Although it acts as a belt, the patterns and colors of the obi are always sophisticated and must be in harmony with the kimono.
Pre-tied obi with cat face prints have been popular lately because they are cute beyond words, and we can quickly put them on. Also, there’s a variety of lovely animal print patterns used for kimono belts, such as goldfish, Japanese cranes, or butterflies. Yet, rarer Japanese animals also became lovable, drawing patterns on the obi, namely bats, shrimp, and pandas.
Moreover, musubi (obi knot) is also an element that makes your kimono more kawaii! Even though there are countless creative ways to tie obi-like creating a cat ear or rabbit ear musubi, a few cute traditional obi knotting styles will undoubtedly surprise you:
