There are many kimono/yukata rental places all around Kyoto, I googled it and research very thoroughly as I want the best yet cheapest one I could get. After compiling both the locations and prices, I decided to go for Kyoto Kimono Rental Wargo. In terms of pricing, it is more cheaper than other kimono rentals out there. Not to mention, their convenient location all around Japan. They have branches in Osaka, Kyoto, and Tokyo.
There are three types of Yukata plan that they provide; Standard Yukata, Premium Yukata, High End Yukata. The standard yukata plan(3200YEN) is for those who want experience wearing yukata or doing rental for the first time. The premium plan(4200YEN) is the most well known amongst customers. It has more advanced yukatas which are suitable for those who love fashionable pattern style: deep color textures that draw attention; big flower patterns such as Taisho Roman. For High End Yukata Plan(5200YEN), the yukatas are made by designers or well known brands.
I was given a standard Yukata plan for a day. The standard yukata plan includes 6 items; kanzashi, yukata, obi, underwear, geta, and bag. The staff then lead me to rows of racks filled with yukatas that I can choose. There is so many Yukatas available and a lot of different patterns, I was overwhelmed and it took me quite some time to pick one that I like. I finally chose a maple leaf pattern yukata. I know it's kinda autumn-ish but I like it somehow ;-;;.
After you picked the yukata, you have to choose obi; it's like a big belt and it will be tied around your waist. Again, I took some time to choose as theres many varieties. In the end, I chose purple colored obi as I have the color purple in the yukata that I picked. You know, just to match it ;)
