Let me introduce myself. My name is Tomo and I am the creator of kimonoé. I think of myself as a “contemporary Kyotoite”, a fusion of the traditional and modern Kyoto woman. Born in Kyoto, I spent my early childhood in Tokyo and Osaka. In Europe I studied at the University of London, before being absorbed in the beauty of living in both Paris & Rome. Having come back full-circle to the roots of my hometown of Kyoto with a degree in Social Anthropology, I created a small agency focusing on providing luxury travel services for overseas visitors to Japan. My multifarious background has served as my inspiration for kimonoé. I hope you too will share my passion for the blend of traditional and modern that Japan has to offer and choose kimonoé to add even more style to your wardrobe!
