I found this place nice for having Kimono experience for 30 minutes and nice snap clicks. Kimono rental is only 500 yen which is very much cheaper than any other place.

I really recommend this place! It shows you as if you are in old Japan. You can wear their kimonos and walk around. However, it is sooooo small. It will only take 10 minutes (maximum 30 minutes) of your schedule.
