Nara-machi, where Enishiya is located, has an elegant townscape. The Gangoji Temple which is registered as a world heritage is nearby and it is an ideal location to take a walk in kimono as there are plenty of stylish cafes and knick-knack shops in the area.
It is also conveniently located for the Todaiji Temple, the Nara Park and the Kasuga-taisha Shrine, all are located within easy walking distance.
The kimonos we stock are mainly vintage kimonos and obi sash belts, their charms go beyond the time or period, you would be enchanted by the kimonos we provide.
Our kimonos are mostly made of pure silk.
You can choose your own style, from traditional to retro & modern chic styles, please enjoy dressing up in your unique kimono style.
For the incense making workshop, you can create your own blend using the natural aromatic base materials.
The incenses are said to have been introduced to Japan 1500 years ago, they were used as part of the Buddhist service and arrived together with the Buddhist scriptures.
The aromatic base materials used for incense preparation are mostly natural roots and barks that are used also as medicinal herbs.
The incenses made of natural base materials have a smell which is calming and is somewhat able to evoke nostalgia.
Why don’t you add a gentle fragrance to your life from now?
If you could have an enjoyable time through our kimonos or incenses, we would be most pleased.
We all look forward to meeting you in our shop.
Manager at Enishiya
Hello, I am Kyoko Kohama. I am the shop manager of “Enishiya”.
I sincerely thank you for visiting our “Enishiya” homepage on this occasion.
I would like to make a brief introduction about myself.
I have been in the beauty business for a long time.
After having had experience working as a hair stylist in Japan, I went to London.
While working as a hair stylist in London, I had met people from many different cultural backgrounds, and the extent of diversity I got to know was hugely exciting.
Through those experiences, I had begun to have a desire to explore many more countries and cultures, I was burning with curiosity and it led me to travel to over 20 countries.
Apart from London I had also lived in Melbourne, Australia and Vancouver, Canada.
After returning to Japan, I had mostly worked in the bridal business and worked for hotels in the capital, Tokyo and Kamakura in Kanagawa prefecture.
Through my work, I got to handle kimonos often and had opportunities to learn about Japanese culture and I began to pay frequent visits to historic places in Japan. I also discovered incenses, I, myself, started to think that I would like to provide occasions to get to know Japanese culture for many others.
Thankfully, with a good turn of fortune, now my dream has come true,
I am able to manage “Enishiya” in Nara.
I would do my best to serve you well, so that after visiting “Enishiya” you would go back filled with a warm feeling and have a smile on your face.
I am wholeheartedly looking forward to your visit.
