Hello Friends at Shimazakura.
I love this yukata I bought from you recently. I am 5’10 inches tall - (took after my dad !) and you had an extra long size which was perfect for me. The sleeves are always too short but I’m super happy with it. Thank you so so much.

Here you have photos of my daughter Viki with your jinbei. As you see, she uses it as karate gi, so Yukata is out of question for training. She was so happy and totally loves her new jinbei (we still call it kimono tho). Thank you very much for everything, I hope we keep in touch and perhaps so some business in the future.

I have a cherished doll that I call Mari. (真理) I was looking for a real obidome for her, but she's only 20 inches tall. Your product was just the right size, and it looks so cute on her! I made her a kimono from the silk sleeve of a lady's vintage kimono. Mari loves her obidome! Please keep safe and well, and very best wishes to you. Warmly, Halona

I love wearing yukata during the hot summer months as well as indoors during the entire year. I find them comfortable to wear, easy to care for, and simple to dress in. As a kimono instructor, I have found yukata to be a wonderful way to start on your kimono journey! Shopping with Shimazakura was a great experience. I had access to all the measurements I required to ensure a perfect fit. There were plenty of product photos to help with my decision. Purchasing was easy and shipping was fast. I cannot wait to purchase more items in the future!

Konnichiwa, Thank you for the prompt service during this difficult time of C-19. Due to social distancing, the summer events were canceled, so I decided to celebrate at home keeping the tradition alive in honor of Obaasan. My beautiful new Yukata and Obi arrived and couldn't wait to wear them! I tried my Obi in a new way to show off the elegant flower at the end of Obi. Arigato,

Here are some pictures from JapanFest. We bought the blue yukata from you the last time you had a booth at JapanFest. It’s still a little long on my daughter. It worked well on her friend who is a few inches taller than her. Everyone loved her new 2 piece yukata!! You have a great eye for colors and patterns! I referred a few friends to your online store and you have a forever patron here! Thank you for everything!!! My daughter says she can’t wait to see what colors/patterns you have next summer! Her friend can’t wait to wear the pink one next year so we will definitely be back!

Konnichiwa, I enjoyed wearing and dancing in my new Yukata Kimono at this years 2018 Bon Odori. The colors were beautiful on a nice day in Seattle. Arigatougozaimasu.

Hello! My name is Yicong, I'm currently living in Portland, Oregon. At these days, Cherry blossm trees are blooming so well at Portland. I really want to take a shot with those pretty sakura, and that's why I purchased my first yukata set "Ohanami" at Shimazakura. This was a wonderful experience of shopping kimono, the pattern of it is very cute. I like the color of my "Ohanami," and I think the quality is very good as well. All of my friends said that this yukata looked so pretty on me. So I'm here sharing these photos to you. And, thank you, Shimazakura! I'll definetly come back and buy more kimonos!

Thank you so much for adding a personal touch to my shopping experience! The shipping was really fast! I really appreciate the hand written note and gift! It is the perfect gift to go with my yukata! The koshihimo matched nicely and it is a great quality! I cannot wait to wear it this summer! Great communication and very accommodating. I hope to be a repeating customer and hopefully I can catch more items before they are “sold out”! You have very nice selections and it would be nice if you can stock more tabi socks!

Hello! My name is Arli Sierra and I live in California, United States. I've been wanting to wear a Kimono or Yukata since forever! I finally was able to get a Kimono in Los Angeles but I wasn't able to find a Obi sash and than I find this online shop! I have to say, the products here are simply beautiful! Not only that, but this place is really great with giving out information, responding to questions, and even shipping! I didn't have to wait even five days and I already was able to receive my Obi sash! Needless to say, I am very happy with my product. Even that small handwritten letter they sent with the package just made my day even better~ Five Golden stars to this shop!~ I will come back and buy from this shop again!~
Arli san / 03.2015
She is 10 months old and is enjoying the her first Sakura Festival.
Her favorite part was playing with the water balloons and handing them to other people. She got lots of compliments on her jinbei. Thank you your all that you do.

We love the yukata we ordered for our daughter from your store. We would love to buy another one, and the personal note you slipped in the packaging indicated that if we submitted a photo, we would receive a 10% off e-coupon.
Our daughter loves to wear yukatas. It is a special way for her to connect with her heritage.
Fusako san / 03.2012
Thank you very much! We loved our daughter's first jinbei! It is really good quality and well made. It was also shipped to us quickly. She was also very comfortable in it and was able to crawl all over the place!

Yukata for Halloween? I was passing out candy this past year for Halloween and I seriously didn't have anything else to wear so I grabbed my yukata and stuck an robe under it to keep me warm. Believe it or not it gets cold in Arizona!

This is our daughter Naomi. She is 2 months old. We love her kimono and can't wait to purchase another one. Arigatoo Gozaimasu,

Hello and happy Friday!
I wanted to write how wonderful your customer service is. I appreciate how honest you are with describing each item for sale and photos included. I tend to write and ask before I purchase an item that is lower then a 'C' rank. But I have no regrets with all my purchases from you! I was really impressed with how lovely my recent purchased items where. And I have shared with my friends that you are a US seller of kimono goods (very hard to find). But I do wonder, are you based out of NC or simply ship from NC? Some friends have asked and I only know the return address said Greensboro NC. Here is a photo of the pink nagoya obi and objime I recently purchased. And thank you kindly for honoring the yukata contest special discount. Also I loved my special gift, thank you kindly!
Bethanee san / 01.2011
Here is the new long awaited Yukata with Shimazakura Hanhaba Obi.
Happy fourth of July!
