Dedicated Kimono Websites
One of the most trusted sources for kimono. Ichiroya sells kimono, obi, shoes, and many other items. Their descriptions are very accurate and they will always pour over the kimono and report any flaws. The website has a nice advanced search option for finding exactly what you need. And they are also very helpful if you need individual help. Their prices are on the more expensive side, but they're a great source for high quality kimono.
I have personally worked with this store when they came to Boston. The owner is knowledgeable and fair, and I give this store my personal stamp of approval. They're LGBTQ+ friendly and willing to help you with whatever your dressing needs may be. You can find various kinds of kimono, obi, dressing accessories, tabi, haori, purses, kimono fabric, etc. The website lists product condition and sizes. They operate out of Ohio (no surprise) and for now only ship to the US. But their website also has various information, a blog, youtube channel, instagram, customer gallery, and more! I strongly recommend you check them out! I wrote a whole blog post about them here.
Kimono Yukata Market
This site sells yukata and other accessories necessary for wearing yukata. You can buy an obi and geta set with any yukata. They even have special kimono underwear, nagajuban. They also have a small selection of Japanese art and display stands.
A store that sells various items, such as kimono, yukata, jinbei, hanten, aprons, and fabric.
An etsy store that includes very beautiful handmade items and other more traditional products. Great place to find modern fashion items made from kimono, dressing accessories, fabrics, and more. They accept customer orders and happily accept other individual requests.
Sou has an incredibly expansive listing of items. They sell kimono, yukata, obi, accessories, art pieces, tea ceremony pieces, and more. They often have some of the cheapest prices around, if you're looking for discount vintage kimono. They often run sales and have free shipping as well. This site is connected to Shinei and often the stores will list each other's products. Check their ebay for more items and even better deals.
Shinei is a great website for finding a wide variety of color and styles of kimono. Their array of synthetic iromuji is impressive. They also sell a large quantity of synthetic kimono of all types. Be careful, shipping can get expensive and isn't included in the price listing.
This company was founded by Yoko Lewis and is based in the United States. They work directly with her family in Japan to bring all sorts of interesting pieces to America. You can find individual pieces, large kimono bundles by the pound, fabric, and more. Their website also has a lot of great information about kimono and an interesting blog they update regularly. If you're looking for a friendly family business that's ready to help you find exactly what you need, this is the place to go.
General Retail Marketplace
Keep in mind for all marketplace websites that there will be many fake kimono listed as well! These are the best ways to find excellent deals, but also a lot more difficult to navigate.
Here is a small list of ebay sellers that only sell authentic kimono and Japanese goods.
There are MANY kimono sellers on Rakuten. In addition, it's pretty easy to narrow down your choices using their category options. This is also the best place to find dressing tools and more uncommon items, such as obi clips, obi dome, eri clips, and other accessories. But many of the listings in English are just automatically translated versions of the Japanese page. Consequently many of these can be a little hard to read and it can be hard to search for certain items because they will be listed using the translated name. For example, an obi makura will probably be listed as obi pillow or sash pillow. In addition, all shipping fee calculations and finalizing of purchases is done over email, and many times you will get this email in Japanese! Not all the stores that have international shipping can speak English. This can be very daunting and difficult for people. So be ready!
Kyoto Kimono Cafe
Yahoo Japan Auctions
This is another great place to find a lot of cheap kimono. But, you will need to use a shopping service such as Noppin to purchase and have these goods shipped internationally.
