Yukata are traditional Japanese garments worn by both men and women, and these lightweight cotton robes are particularly popular in summer or during festivals. Featuring vibrant colors and intricate patterns, yukata evoke a sense of elegance and cultural heritage without being as formal as kimono.

The Himeji Yukata Festival has been running for over 250 years now, and the event honors the beauty and significance of this popular attire. The majority of festival-goers wear yukata themselves, and if you don't personally own one there are various local rental stores where you can borrow one for the day. If you do opt to get dressed up, you receive half-price fares on the local Shinki Bus, along with admission discounts at various attractions in the Himeji area.


The festival takes place at several destinations around Himeji, including Himeji Castle, Jonan Park, and Otemai-dori. The venues can be accessed conveniently via Himeji Station, which is served by the Sanyo Shinkansen, the Sanyo Main Line, the Bantan Line, and the Kishin Line.
