Kimono Night at Okinami Japanese Restaurant in Brighton at 6 pm – 10 pm on Sunday December 6th.
It should be great fun: there’ll be a welcome cocktail served by waitresses dressed as Geisha, Japanese canapes including sushi, tempura and kara age, and a Geisha makeover for one lucky ticket holder who’ll get their portrait painted by a Japanese Manga artist, Inko. Everyone will also get the chance to try on kimonos. Hope to see you there. Tickets are priced at £20 and available from Oki-Nami ( BUY 2 tickets and get one FREE!

Inko can also offer you to get drawn in Kimono costume no matter what you're wearing on that day - £5 with colour, wanna give a try?
