— Everything has been passed down from generation to generation through repeated changes.


Toyotake Sakijudayu


A kimono is 'something to wear'. Very simple indeed.

It is inevitable that the style of what we wear changes with the passage of time.

Universality and innovation exist at the same time in the functional beauty of the kimono, which is sublimated into the modern life we live, backed by the functional beauty that accompanied the life in the past.

There is no boundary in the irreversible flow of time between the old and the new, and everything has been passed down from generation to generation through repeated changes.

That is the oral tradition, KUDEN.

Welcome, come on, be with us.
