There are also a lot of people in Asakusa Shrine/Sensō-ji wearing a Kimono or more specifically a Yukata (worn during the summer) .

It was a shame since I wasn’t able to do this but you can plan ahead and rent one from Klook. They have more than 1 shop which offers Kimono/Yukata rentals for you to choose from which you can easily access on the links below.
