What awaits you
Photo walk in national costumes The first thing we will do after the meeting is to go to the Japanese salon with a huge selection of kimonos and yukats - a lightweight version of clothing for summer. I will be your translator and advisor: I will help you choose colors and choose the right accessories. And the staff of the salon will help to put on a national costume and make the girls a simple styling. Next, we will go to the ancient area of Asakusa, where the photo session will take place. I will capture you against the backdrop of ancient streets and houses, a Japanese park with a pond and carp, the Kaminari Mon gate, Nakamise shopping avenue and the famous Senzoji temple
Local stories and recommendations I have been living in Japan for over 10 years and will gladly talk about local life and how people live and work here. In addition, you will hear about the types of kimonos and find out when modern Japanese people wear them. And I will also reveal in whose kimono girls are photographed when they come of age, how national clothes are inherited, and I will help you learn to pose like locals! In conclusion, I will share some valuable practical advice: where to go in your free time, where to buy souvenirs and what else to visit in Japan.
- Kimono rent is not included in the price - from $ 30 per person. The kimono must be returned before the store closes (17.30).
