As the year comes to a close, we like to look back on the beautiful old, vintage and new kimonos that have passed through our store and celebrate our favorites that were in stock. The selection of kimonos from Japan that we stock is constantly changing, and in most cases the kimonos we offer are unique. As a result, when one of our kimonos is sold, it is gone forever. This means that we see an endless variety of kimono designs, in countless colors and combinations.
Presented in no particular order, here is a selection of our 10 favorite Japanese kimonos that we sold on our site this year. Materials, styles, and sizes vary by kimono. Some of these kimonos may still be in stock, and some of them may be out of stock and gone forever. The compiled list of favorites will also include a wide range of kimono formalities, from yukata to furisode, we’ve got quite a diverse lineup for 2022. When you check out this list, check to see if you own one of our top picks for the year!

Kimono Honorable Mention
Pink and White Yukata – Rabbits
With 2023 being the Year of the Rabbit, we feel it’s only fitting to list this adorable pink yukata as an honorable mention. White rabbits in women’s kimono are highly sought after by collectors and sell fast when we have them in stock. This adorable yukata is a prime example of why this type of kimono sells so fast.
