I highly recommened this Oiran photo experience. Many people hire kimonos in the local area for photos but honestly they have nothing on this! The ladies did wonderful job with makeup and hair and photographer talked me throught the poses and process , I felt extremely comfortable and also pampered. I felt like a queen during it all and makes a wonderful souvenir to take home.

The staff is friendly. The make-up artist/hair designer did such a beautiful job. And the photographer took extremely well composed photographs of me. It is hard to think the one on the pictures is me. The clothes where very heavy and the poses hard to hold but it is definitely a great experience and I would highly recommend to go to this place to do an Orian photoshoot.

I had my Oiran makeover session this morning. I was excited but nervous because I am plus size and was afraid that nothing would fit me. I really wanted to do this so I went and I am so glad I did. The staff was very sweet and respectful and made proper adjustments to the outfit to make sure I looked great. They did a great job on my hair , which was in braids and makeup. The photographer helped me pose and made me feel so comfortable. I would highly recommend Esperanto Studio and will cherish my photos.
