'Ume Luv' is a beautiful shop located a short walk away from Matsushimakaigan station. With a panoramic view of the sea and pier, your breath is taken away as soon as you enter the store, before you even begin to enjoy the experience of the Kimonos it offers. Yume-San is very helpful and caring, both while assisting you in choosing the right Kimono as well as while meticulously helping you put it on. The experience for me was made perfect when I was able to slash out with the Katanas that the shop additionally offered. I'd recommend trying on a Kimono, specifically at Ume Luv, to everyone visiting Matsushima
It was my very first try of wearing Kimono. First of all, i would like to highlight that not only renting Kimono but you can also enjoy the amazing view of Matsushima! Second, you can also have cup of tea and rest while your friends are busy with their turn to try. Third, the most important, the lady who owns the store can speak in English! Thus, please enjoy your visit! I believe you all will love it! Tselmuun. Ch Mongolia
