Kimono Gown Sizing

We are currently working on improving the sizing information we provide for our kimono and yukata gowns and will be adding this to our website in the coming weeks/months.  In the meantime,  here is a chart - based on our men's yukata - which you can use to help select a suitable length of gown.  If you would like information about any particular gown please email us with details of the gown you are interested in and information regarding your height and build.

The chart below shows how our gowns of lengths 56”(S), 57”(M), 58”(M), 60”(L) and 62”(LL) will look lengthwise on average-build men of heights 5’7”, 5’9”, 5'11, 6’ and 6’2”. 


NA = not applicable  (gown size not available at japanya.co.uk)
For men of slimmer/broader builds the hem will be lower/higher accordingly.

Our recommendations ()are based on wearing the gown to the ankle (as in image 2, 3 and 4).  If you prefer to wear your gown above the ankle please select a size shorter than our recommendations.


Example 1:  an average-build man of 5’7”:
wearing a 56” yukata refer to image 2 - the hem will be on the ankle
wearing a 57” yukata refer to image 1 - the hem will be below the ankle

Example 2:  an average-build man of 5’9”:
wearing a 56” yukata refer to image 4 - the hem will be on the ankle
wearing a 57” yukata refer to image 3 - the hem will be on the ankle
wearing a 58” yukata refer to image 2 - the hem will be on the ankle

Example 3:  an average-build man of 5’11”:
wearing a 56” yukata refer to image 6 - the hem will be just above the ankle
wearing a 57” yukata refer to image 5 - the hem will be just above the ankle

Example 4:  an average-build man of 6’:
