Custom-made yukata in Kyoto?
I'd like to have a yukata custom-made during an upcoming trip to Kyoto. Does anyone have any experience having this done in Kyoto -- any recommendations for shops, any idea of how long it might take? (I'll be only in Kyoto, so recommendations in other cities will not be useful this trip.)

If you want a custom made, shopping at reputable department stores, Takashimaya and Daimaru, could be an answer. Yukata here is about $200 to 250, matching geta (sandal) and obi (belt) are $80 each, totally about $400. See these links in Japanese;

In Kyoto, Takashimaya is located at Shijo-Kawaramachi, and Daimaru is Shijo-Takakura.

Domo arogato, seahopper-san -- just the information I was looking for. (Unfortunately, I've used nearly half my Japanese vocabulary in this message, but that's another issue.)
