However, we have some kimono rental service available.

Yes, we edit the brightness and color balance of images.
Skin retouch is applied to some images we think necessary, but not on all the images.
We do not make any retouches to change the shape of body, arms or faces.
How can I make the reservation for the photo session?
First, please contact us from the form on this website. International customers needs to make 30,000 yen deposit to book the date. The deposit can be made either by paypal or via bank transfer.
The final payment can be made either by cash, bank transfer, or paypal.
What happen in case of rain day or other bad weather?
In case of rain, we make a call and ask to choose one of those three options:
1. Change the date.
It sucks to take pictures under the rain. In some cases you only have pictures with umbrella on. You might reserve an extra date for the off peak season, but not possible during the peak pre-wedding season, such as end of March - early April, and middle of November - middle of December.
2. Continue shooting.
Some people have limited schedule, especially if you are coming from outside of Japan.
But please remember that you might not able to shoot at some locations under the rain, and number of images might decrease dramatically.
When you make a travel plan, I recommend you to make at least two open days for the photo session in case of bad weather.
3. Cancel the shooting
Some people have tight schedule and only one date might be available. In that kind of case, you can cancel the shooting.
We will return the deposite. But for refound is only made via paypal, not via bank transfer. if your bank account is based outside of Japan.
Where do you travel?
We travel any where in Japan or in the world. For pre-wedding, we have visited Kyoto, Hokkaido, Kawazu, Gifu, Fukuoka, and Nara.
We also have visited California, Boston, New York, Singapore, Thailand, and Hong Kong in the past.
Please contact us for traveling cost for your shooting destination.
Where can we take pictures?
Tokyo is very tricky place for pre-wedding session. Many parks ask us for permission to take pictures with wedding dress on. Some temples are OK to photograph with kimono on, but not with a white gown. Some place never let us to shoot with white gown on, but OK with casual dress. So depending on your photo themes and images you are looking for, we will discuss about shooting destinations.
