Welcome to Ikeda, an Antique Kimono Shop
At Ikeda, high quality kimono, obi, and much more are available at reasonable prices. In addition, services such as the coordination and restoration of kimonos, as well as assistance with highly customized projects, can be provided upon request.
Ikeda was established in 1975 by Shigeko Ikeda, who is widely regarded as one of the most respected collectors of kimonos from the Edo, Meiji, Taisho, and Showa eras.
The kimono, the traditional garment of Japan, was developed and refined over many centuries by the unique sensibilities and tender sense of beauty of the Japanese people, who are known to express their great appreciation for the four seasons. Each and every kimono has it’s own story, and there are customs one observes regarding the seasons and occasions in which a particular kimono is worn. I would like to share this vision with not just the people of Japan, but with people around the world.
