Beautiful, excellent, wonderful!

Thank you for the beautiful hanten. It is so soft, warm and excellent quality. I plan to wear it at home, work and shopping too! Shipping was super fast and professional and the hand written note included made my day very happy :) I am also buying one for my daughter-in-law for the holidays. Domo arigatogozaimashita.

10/10 would buy again

Bought this as a gift for my boyfriend and he loves it! Super high quality and fits great. Would definitely recommend! :)

Great value...thank you

Simple and versatile

This vivid green and bright yellow obi is a classy and elegantly simple obi that works with a variety of yukata. The green side goes well with many pink and orange shades, while the yellow side is lovely against blues and purples. This one item matches with three of the yukata I own, making it incredibly versatile. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Beautiful Fan

Beautifully crafted fan that keeps you cool as well as looks nice on display!

Item as described, and fast delivery. Thank you!

Fast and efficient service

I love my kimonos 4 for a wonderful price. All wearable and in good condition. I will have trouble now choosing my favorite for my costume because they are all so fabulous.


This jinbei is so cute! Almost didn't fit my daughter, because she's so tall, but got to use it for obon odori and she stayed cool and comfortable.

Great for my son!

Love the set. I needed to replace the elastic on the pant but for such a good deal it was worth it! Great fabric piece for a good price. We get such compliments in the clothes we get for him here.

I doubt there's a better tabi sock out there.

My wife liked the look and quality of my Shimazakura stretchy white tabi socks so much she asked me to order a couple of pairs for her!

For wearing around the house these simply can't be beat! They're well-made and very comfortable. They are easy to clean and an excellent value for the money. I purchased a pair of similar tabi socks on Ebay, and they weren't nearly as good. You get what you pay for.

Best of all is dealing with Shimazakura. This business is all about the Japanese ethos of quality products and customer service that's second to none! They are one of the few online merchants I actually look forward to shopping with.

I strongly recommend this product AND this merchant!

Beautiful Jinbei & Great Customer Service!

I bought this Jinbei as a birthday gift for my son’s best friend. My son picked it as he has a similar to this and he loves wearing it. So he thought it would be so cool to share what’s Jinbei is like. His friend and his family LOVED IT! He just turned 8 years old, and we bought size 140 so he has enough room to grow into it.

Great customer service too! Had a little issue with shipping, yet they took care of it very quickly. Very responsible. I would definitely shop again. :)

Women's "Deer" and "Bunny" Reversible Hanten Jacket / L
Jacqueline Allinder
Hanten Jacket

The entire shipping experience was so pleasant! Item shipped very quickly, was nicely packaged and included a personalized handwritten note. The hanten jacket is just gorgeous. The material is high quality, the colors are vibrant, and the print is very clear. The fit is perfect. I look forward to buying this product again in another design!


The slip fits nicely and does not feel heavy.

Top Quality and Comfort

For wearing around the house, these tabi are the best! the stretch material is very soft and feels cool on the skin; I think these would be perfect for the hot summer months. The quality is top-notch. I sure hope Shimazakura will get more in stock because I want to order some more!

Excellent for wearing at home

Very well made tabi. They feel very cool on the feet, so I think they will be perfect for summer wear. I sure hope you'll be getting more in this size in stock!

Women's Shibori Flower Fan Reversible Hanten Jacket / L
May kum Wong (Mount Laurel, US)
A surprise gift

I thought they are right size for my daughters because I bought them before in Japan. Don’t have chance to take pictures since they live in different state. I’ll do so when I see them.

Loved it

My daughter loved her Yukata. I'm glad we found instructions on how to wear.

Still don't have it

Hi. Believe it or not, I still didn't recieve the jinbei so there is nothing to review yet. Merry Christmas.

Men's Black Cotton Polyester Samue set <4L>
John Armstead (Jacksonville, US)
Great Quality

The men’s Jimbei and Samue set I purchased was as advertised regarding the size, color and material type. Fantastic!! Although, I did purchase several smaller items (Okinawa BINGATA print bag and handkerchief), they were gifts. The recipient is from Okinawa and did inform me how authentic, colorful and of great quality they were.

Cool Orange Spider Obidome
L.Yoh (Milpitas, US)
Cool Orange Spider Obidome is so COOL!!

I finally purchased my very own kimono and needed to have an ornament (obidome) to add to my obijime. I think I will dress up in full kimono for Halloween and show this off! Love it!
