We have set our shops near 3 of Kyoto's most famed tourist spots. Conveniently located and access into the city is a breeze at our Kyoto station location. Our Kiyomizu shop is located at Kyoto's number one hottest sightseeing location by Kiyomizu-dera temple, and lastly our Gion shop is set in the center of downtown Kyoto in Gion. Choose the most convenient location of your choice depending on your schedule, and image. Choose from over 300 styles of Kimono from old, traditional elegant styles to a little attractive see-through styles. Depending on your style and feel, choose the kimono that best suits you. We will also set your hair with traditional Japanese style wigs made 50% lighter than the usual. Once you've transformed yourself, go to your exclusive studio for your own and personal photo shoot with a professional camera man. We will take 20 shots of several different angles and poses. Once you've done that, go out to town and stroll the city! Enjoy the best, traditional Kyoto experience.
