Asakusa Kimono Shop Tour

I and a cultural organization I belong to have Asakusa kimono shop tours for interpreter tour guides for their education.
After two hours lecture about how to find/shop kimono in Tokyo or on internet, we visited over 20 shops including kimono recycling retailers, whole-sellers and combs shop which is one of the oldest shops in Asakusa and Nihonbashi.
This tour was so popular among the organization members so I held 3 tours in two days. But visiting kimono shops with kimono fellows was so much fun so I didn't get tired at all!
