Kimono Walk: Relive Esashi’s Long History of Trade in Period Dress – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

Put on an authentic kimono and have your hair styled to match before setting off on a walking tour of the historic buildings of Esashi, an important trading town for over 300 years. The streets are lined with original and restored buildings dating back to the Edo (1603-1868) and Meiji periods (1868-1912). Soak up the atmosphere as you visit tea shops and cafes and take part in Japanese crafts, all while wearing an original kimono created from traditional fabrics.
