花魁・舞妓・侍変身写真撮影 ゴージャスな着物で大変身!<浅草>by 浅草変身写真館 スタジオ七色

大満足!絶対体験すべしです♪

Reviewed by: june, 2016/02/29

浅草の雷門の斜め前とという絶好のロケーションにお店はあります。
お店に行った時は外国人のお客さんもちらほらいました。
お店はまだオープンして1年くらいで新しくてとっても清潔。

花魁スタンダードで体験撮影してきました。
撮影前はちょっと価格がお高め?って思っていましたが、これがすごくクオリティが高くて大満足でした~!

メイクと髪型はこちらの希望も細かく聞いてくれて、2人がかりで50分くらいもかけて丁寧にやって下さいました。
スタンダードはかつらではなくて地毛で髪型をセットしてもらうのですが、美容院で成人式の時に髪の毛をセットしてもらうくらいのきちんとした仕上がり。
まるで自分じゃないくらいキレイにしてもらいました。

衣装はきれいなものばかりでどれを選べばいいのか迷ってしまうくらい。
メイクの方と相談して着物と帯を決めていきました。
着付けも2人がかりで10分もかけてきれいにやってもらえました。

撮影も色々なポーズで沢山撮ってもらいまして、カメラマンさんが選んでくれた24枚の中から3枚選んでプリントアウトした写真とデータを頂けるのですが、結局選びきれず。。。
どれも素敵で24枚全てのデータを購入してしまいました。

ホントすっごく楽しかったです。
絶対やる価値ありです。
若い方も年配の方も楽しめると思います。

ただ、写真を選ぶ際にiPadやPCなどの大きめな画面で選べたらもっと良かったかなって思います。
それから追加で購入できる写真データがもうちょっとお安いと有難いかな(笑)。
でも、これだけクオリティが高い写真だから仕方ないか。。。とも思います。
追加の出費となりましたが、私は全データ購入してホント良かったと思っています。

また是非機会があったらやりたいです。

Elegant Kimono Photo Shoot Experience in Tokyo

Friendly ladies who will not only dress you up as a princess but also make you feel like a one!

Reviewed by: Nikki, 2015/04/15

When I first booked this experience, I expected that (because kimono is quite an expensive thing) I will feel uncomfortable wearing it and taking pictures. As I come from the country where people providing services are not really that friendly I also expected formal atmosphere. But the reality was complete opposite! The three ladies working at the studio Wa were soooo friendly and created such a atmosphere, that I couldn´t help but laugh during the whole photoshooting. When we entered the studio, they already expected me and my friend and we received very warm welcome. Then they arranged our hairstyle very pretty so it will match with kimono and we got to choose the hair accessory on our own. Also we chose the kimono we wanted to take pictures in. Even though it took us quite a lot of time they waited patiently for us to decide. Then one of the ladies helped us with wearing kimono and the others prepared for the photoshooting. They took around 20 pictures of each of us (also with some props like a sword, flowers, an umbrella) . Then we took off the kimono and got to choose one picture to be printed out. Me and my friend were so satisfied with the pictures that we decided to pay for all of them to get them on CD. While we waited for the CDs, the ladies served us with original japanese matcha - green tea and sweets. For the whole time we were there, they were really friendly. The best hospitality! Even when we returned home and I had a problem displaying pictures on my computer, so I wrote to the studio and they replied within few hours and sent me pictures again.
Honestly, I can´t find anything to complain about. The whole studio is really cozy and close to the Meguro Station, and one lady can speak English very well. I will definitely recommend this place not only here but also to my friends. And I really wouldn´t mind taking my pictures in kimono there again :) They also have a facebook page so you can check some of the photos there.

Dear Nikki, thank you very much for such a kind review, especially we are impressed with the word, "The best hospitality!" Yes, "friendly" is probably the best word to describe our studio. We are always want our customers to smile here. In fact, we really enjoyed the photo session on the day, too! Please come back again if you have any chance, we are always looking forward to seeing you someday :)

Elegant Kimono Photo Shoot Experience in Tokyo

Wonderful Japanese Shoot

Reviewed by: Andy, 2015/04/26

We signed up for the kimono experience plan because my wife loves Japan and has always wanted to try on a Kimono. The whole experience turned amazing. Despite being unfamiliar with the area, the studio was very, very easy to find located in the NW corner of JR Meguro. The studio itself was very inviting and personal. We were greeted by the girls who spoke English and were super friendly. They informed us on the schedule and details of our plan, so there were no surprises later. Once done, she provided me with a catalog with all the different traditional Japanese men’s wear to choose from. As I have never worn this before, I definitely needed the ladies to help me so that I didn’t wear the pants on backwards! We then proceeded to the studio where they took probably 15-20 photos. They had all sort of different props from me ranging from samurai swords to Japanese umbrellas which was fun. The shoot throughout was very engaging, where the photographer is constantly interacting with you. As I never have modeled for anything, she was very helpful in terms of telling me how to pose, where to put my arm, and where to look. At no point during the shoot did I feel uncomfortable or unnatural. Once done, they allowed you back to the dressing room, where you were actually allowed to use your own phone or camera to take a few pictures for yourself! Since I only purchased the basic package, I was able to choose only 1 pic. However, many of the photos really turned out well and getting extras weren’t so expensive so I picked up more. Even if I selected the whole package of the shoot, the cost was still fairly reasonable (5000 yen). Best of all, the girls are never pushy for you to buy any photos. All in all, this turned out to be a wonderful experience and probably was the highlight of our trip. I would highly recommend this for anyone coming to Japan and hoping for a Japanese experience with pictures to remember.

Dear Andy, thank you very much for your review and we are glad that you had a wonderful experience. It might be one good thing that our customers can use their own cameras and take kimono photos at our fitting room. We hope you and your wife love Japan more!

Elegant Kimono Photo Shoot Experience in Tokyo

Beautiful Kimonos and Incredible welcome

Reviewed by: Ffion, 2015/04/26

As there were no reviews of this experience, I was not sure what to expect but as soon as our taxi pulled up at the address and there was a clear sign directing to us to the right floor, I was reassured!

We were greeted by two incredibly hospitable and welcoming Japanese ladies who were incredibly passionate about their business. It was honestly a priviledge to visit them in their studio. First there was the opportunity to choose a Kimono to my tastes and then they did my hair in a style fitting for the Kimono (you also get to choose matching hair accessories too) which was great. After this I touched up my make up and they began to put the Kimono on.

The main experience is then having your photos taken in the studio part along with some fun Japanese accessories. For this experience you have one printed photo included from the photo shoot and you can pay extra to take the digital prints away - which I did as it wasn't too expensive.

I can honestly say that the whole experience was fun and professional with the Japanese ladies making you feel totally at ease the whole time. My husband came along (but he didn't fancy dressing up!) and they made him feel very welcome too and let him take photos of me for free in the kimono outside of the studio too (which I thought was very generous).

After the photo shoot we were both served some delicious green tea and Japanese sweets which ended off the experience brilliantly. This was a totally worthwhile experience and in my opinion much better than walking around outside in a Kimono which I saw lots of tourists do! The quality of their kimonos is so much better and as they are more princess style, it feels incredibly luxurious to wear them. As the lift doors closed at the end of this experience we were left with the image of the two ladies bowing to us on our way out - I cannot rate them highly enough.

Overall a fantastic experience and I'm so glad I chose to do it!

Comments from activity operators

Dear Ffion, thank you very much for your review, and we are glad that you had fun with us. Yes, we believe that our kimono quality is very good to experience KIMONO in Japan. We want our customers to experience authentic and gorgeous kimono if they wore one. Please come back to Japan again!

Wear Kimono in Asakusa with a Rental Dress Up Experience in Tokyo

So much fun!

Reviewed by: Roxie, 2017/03/25

I scheduled our appointment for the very first of the day and was so glad that I did. We were the only ones there and had our pick of so many kimonos that I almost couldn't decide which one to wear. When we came back to return our kimonos, the studio was full with three or four people. The woman who runs the place speaks good english and was so sweet and delightful. She made the whole experience of picking out our kimonos and dressing so much fun. The best part was getting to walk around Tokyo in our kimonos. At first we were a little anxious, because we seemed to be getting a lot of looks. The Japanese people seemed to get a kick out of seeing foreigners dressed in kimonos as they'd mostly smile and do the little nod bow thing. We walked from the studio to Nakamise shopping street and Sensoji shrine. By the time we'd gotten through those two sight seeing places we started to see a lot of other people dressed in kimonos. As we saw the other people in kimonos, I realized how much nicer the Sakura studio dressing experience was than all the others as we looked way better than everyone else we saw. My husband had the kimono top with the hakama pants on and the kimono jacket over top. The other men I saw had just the kimono and jacket, no pants. It could have been a choice on their part, I'm not sure, but I thought the pants looked better. My obi was an actual obi that the woman tied into a really cool knot and added a second accent pre-tied knot that made it look really cool. The other women I saw walking around had only a pretty poor looking pre-tied obi on. We also got to pick out Zori sandals and a kimono purse to go with our kimonos. I was also surprised at how warm the whole getup was. It was around 50 degrees outside the whole day but I wasn't cold at all, and I usually get cold very easily. Overall, I would recommend this activity, and I would definitely recommend the Sakura Studio.

浅草でモデル体験!

Reviewed by: よーだ, 2013/12/02

友達がスカイツリーに行ったことがないとのことだったので、何か特別な体験をしたいと思い申し込みました!
フォトスタジオは浅草駅からすぐでした。ちょっと場所はわかりずらいですが、すぐ辿りつけました。
中に入るとスタッフの方が出迎えてくれます。私たちだけしかいないので、リラックスできましたよ。
まずはたくさんある帯、着物、髪飾りから好きなものを選べます。
種類の多さと、本格的なお着物でびっくり!私は紺のお花柄にしました。手際よく、髪のセット、着付けをしていただき、いざ撮影に入ります。お外で4-5箇所撮影していただきました。
浅草は何度か行ってますが、こんな場所あったんだというような隠れスポットで
撮影してくれます。
めちゃくちゃいろんな方(特に外国人)から、「何の撮影ですか?」「一緒に写真とってもらえますか?」と話かけてもらえてまるで自分がモデルになったかのようでしたww
1時間程の撮影の後、自由時間です。私たちは電車でスカイツリーに行き、浅草に戻って、浅草で食べ歩きをして、レトロな喫茶店でお茶をしました。

17時までに着物を返せばいいので、散策時間はたっぷりありましたよ。

東京でもこんなに非日常的な体験を味わるものかとすごく充実した一日をおくることができました。
着物を脱いで、誰からも声をかけられなくなってすごく寂しくなりましたww

友達とはまた来年やりたいねって言ってます!こんな非日常体験おすすめです!

【東京華麗和風】淺草變身寫真館Studio七色・花魁和服寫真攝影(中文服務+藝妓or舞妓or武士體驗可選)

一次满意的体验!

Reviewed by: 悠悠日本遊學, 2016/08/18

这是第二次来东京游玩,可是购物逛街一类的实在是非常乏味,偶然的一个机会知道了可以在东京拍花魁的艺术照(一直以为只有京都才有)实在是很激动和期待,觉得得这将会是一个非常值得回忆的经历,而事实确实也是如此。刚进店里就被店里华丽整洁的装修吸引,原本还担心日语语言不通的问题,没想到一位可以讲中文的日本大哥前前后后一直在为我们服务,包括填表啊 具体流程说明啊,瞬间安心了不少。接着挑选衣服的过程也是特别的新鲜有意思,原本以为影楼的衣服会一般,没想到竟都是极其华美精致的和服,质量不是差的那种,很舒服,花纹和色彩的选择丰富,选择困难症都快爆发,眼花缭乱的爱不释手。最终决定了一件深蓝印花振袖和服,接着更牛掰的是整一个发饰的制作和化妆用了整整一小时,但时间竟也在不知不觉中就飞逝了,看着自己一点一点变了样的过程觉得很有意思,化妆师和发型师各种努力的配合自己的喜好,英文也能蛮好的沟通,完好妆容之后,一头华丽丽的头饰真是长了眼的感觉。最后就装备着装打褂开始照相了的。一整套衣服穿上也是不容易的,左一層右一层,最后包成了个粽子。再挑了一件无比奢华的打褂,就开始摄影了。换了好几个pose,摄影师也很认真,顺利完成了摄影,期待照片的过程也很激动。看到最后与众不同的华丽照片,心里还是很有成就感的,不枉折腾了快三个小时。非常推荐大家来体验拍照!

たまには着物で浅草さんぽ

Reviewed by: くもじい, 2015/01/04

江戸が舞台の小説を読んでいたらどうしても着物を着て下町の街を歩いてみたくなりこちらを予約してみました。
スタジオには海外のお客さんも沢山来ており、台湾とタイの方もいました。
そこまで広くないスタジオですが、十分に選べるだけの着物があり、逆に迷って決められないくらい。髪飾りも帯も、ぱぱっと決められるようスタジオの方がいい具合にアドバイスをくれます。
着付けはスピーディですがしっかりとしてました。歩いていても苦しくないほどよい締め具合、ヘアセットも簡単ですがかわいく編み込んでくれました。
今回は思い切って写真撮影のオプションを付けました。スタジオから浅草寺へ歩いて撮影開始。カメラマンさんだけど、浅草について沢山お話をしてくれてまるでガイドさんみたいな方でした。袴姿にやや緊張気味の夫と、着物でちょっと恥ずかしい私でしたが、お陰で楽しいおしゃべりに和んだ雰囲気で撮影できましたよ。
ちょうどお正月の飾りがあり年末年始の独特な雰囲気の浅草。江戸の時代にもこんな夫婦がいたのかな、なんて思いにふけりながら、1時間ほどの撮影を楽しみました。
写真撮影なしでも、着物レンタルにヘアセットもついて、夕方まで着て過ごせてこの値段はお得だと思います。男性の着物ももっと種類があると嬉しいですね。

ゴージャスな着物で大変身!写真撮影プラン[浅草変身写真館 スタジオ七色/浅草] / ☆会員様限定モニターツアー☆/花魁(おいらん)プレミアム を友人と二人で体験させていただきました。とても楽しい時間を過ごすことができました!
スタッフの皆さんが優しく接してくださり、お店の雰囲気も明るく素晴らしかったです。

たまには着物も良いですね。

Reviewed by: ライチョウ, 2013/12/30

お正月で込み合う前の浅草で着物体験してきました。着物を着るのは、浴衣をのぞけば10年ぶりくらいでしょうか?どんな感じだったかなとわくわくしながら浅草へ向かいました。スタジオはビルの一室。ちょっとわかりにくいですが、地図の通りの場所です。迷わずビルの中に入りましょう、そしたらすぐにわかります。
まずは、着物選びから。古典的なものからモダンなものまで、色々と揃っています。普段着ないようなちょっと変わった柄を選ぶと楽しいかもしれません。着物を選ぶと後は、着付けの方がすべてばっちりコーディネートしてくれます。髪の毛もきちんとアップにセットしてくれるので心配無用。
着付けが終わった後は、ぶらぶらと浅草の街の散策へ。今の浅草は、外国人観光客が多いので一緒に写真を撮ったり、撮られたりとそんなやりとりもところどころに。浅草寺へお参りし、吾妻橋のたもとで地ビールをのみ、浅草で有名なおすしやさんの並ぶすしやどおりでおすしをいただきスタジオへ戻りました。着物姿で浅草大満喫です。
男性用も用意されているので、記念日などにカップルで参加して着物でデートなんていうのもなかなか素敵だなと思いました。また、何かの折に参加したいと思います。

  • すっかりお正月の雰囲気でした

  • 髪の毛もばっちりセットしてくれます

  • 参道では揚げ饅頭がおすすめです

着物で浅草

スカイツリーを見に行くついでに浅草で面白いところがないかと探していたときにこのサイトに出会いました。
着付けとヘアメイク、スタジオ、ロケーション撮影と撮影データも付いてこの価格は本当に安いと思います!
着物は数十着のなかから選べてどれも可愛かったです!他のお客さんとかぶらないようにしているらしく友人とゆっくり着付けしてもらえました。
髪飾りや着物用バック、草履も付いているので持ち物がなく手ぶらでいけるのもとてもよかったです。

着付けが終わって撮影はまずロケーションでした。カメラマンさんが色々浅草の歴史を教えくれながら穴場スポットで撮影しました。外にいる間は荷物も預かってくれるので楽チンでした!

最初は撮影するのが少し恥ずかしかったですが、どんどん楽しくなって色々な人に写真を撮らせてとお願いされてまるでアイドルのようでした(≧∇≦)
撮影が終わってからは自由行動で早速スカイツリーへGO!
着物で見る景色はなんだか風情があって素敵でした!

着物を着て浅草の街を散策していつもとは一味も二味も違う体験ができました!
着物も本格的なので是非色々な人にに体験してもらいたいと思いました!!

毎年、12月末に着物を着て楽しんでいます。今年も金さんのサクラフォトスタジオを利用しました。相変わらずの迅速な着付けタイム!2人参加でしたが、着付けの所要時間はあわせて約30分程、2名で対応していただけるのであっという間です。着物の種類も色、柄ともに品揃えが多く、昨年よりも充実していました。ちょっと地味目の色の着物に、派手めの帯、アクセントにはピンクであわせていただきました。10:30にスタジオに入り、11:00から自由行動スタートです。

まずは、まぐろが安くて美味しいお鮨やさんで腹ごしらえ、その後、昭和21年開業の老舗喫茶店アンヂェラスでレトロな雰囲気とダッチコーヒー(水出しアイスコーヒー)を味わい最後は、浅草演芸ホールで寄席を楽しみました。浅草演芸ホールの昼の部は終了が午後4時10分、最後まで聞いてからスタジオに戻れば着物の返却時間の17時には余裕で間に合います。

着物を着る機会が普段ではめったにありませんが、気分転換にもなってなかなかいいものです。このサービスなら自分で着物を買う必要もなく、色々なパターンのものが楽しめるので仲良しの友達を誘って、着物浅草女子会なんてやってみてもいいなと思います。

Kimono Rental and Kimono Dressing in Nihonbashi

The Best experience

Reviewed by: Chacha(misaki), 2016/07/04

Love this place so much. OMOTENASHI NIHONBASHI is the best place to try dressing Kimono with dressing kimono expert and leran the proper way to wear Kimono. You can choose your own Kimono and Obi. You can walk around Tokyo while wearing Kimono but you have to return Kimono before 6.00 P.M.


บริการดีมากค่ะ เอาใจใส่ทุกรายละเอียดของการแต่งตัวเขาจะมีกิโมโนให้เราเลือกสีตามที่ชอบ และโอบิให้เราเลือกเองได้ แต่ตอนที่เราแต่งเราให้เขาช่วยเลือกกิโมโนให้เลยเพราะเราไม่รู้ว่าชุดไหนสีไหนเข้ากับตัวเรา เขาก็เลือกให้เลย น่ารักค่ะสไตล์คนญี่ปุ่นจะน่ารักๆเรียบร้อยเอาใจใส่และดูแลลูกค้าดี เราสามารถใส่ชุดไปเดินเล่นข้างนอกได้ด้วย แต่ต้องคืนก่อน6โมงเย็น.
โดยรวมประทับใจมากค่ะ=)

Wear Kimono in Asakusa with a Rental Dress Up Experience in Tokyo

Quick tour of Asakusa

Reviewed by: Eric Canoy, 2018/04/19

Second to the last day of our Japan trip, we had booked a rental at Sakura Photo Studio in Asakusa. Being.that we had a large group, of seven participants, we wanted to go in early to get ahead of the crowd.

We arrived via Ginza line, and in a few short blocks we were at the studio. It was located in 4 story building on the corner of two streets. Signs were posted on thier windows to show where they were located. The elevator is small, so you'll have to go in small groups of 3 or 4 at a time.

As we got there most of the employees of Sakura Photo Studio were just getting in, but we're ready to help us get into our kimonos. They were really quick and patient in helping us choose our kimonos. One of the employees spoke FOUR LANGUAGES: Japanese, Korean, Chinese ( Mandarin), and English! That was really helpful especially when other groups started to enter the studio,including that the studio is very small for changing into the kimonos.

The staff was able to get us into.our kimonos within the hour and let us know how long we had the rentals for the day. They also had some discounts on Rik Shaw rides through Asakusa. You'll look extra traditional with your kimonos.

Overall, the service was great, the quality of the kimonos were great and diverse, and the staff was very helpful. Will do again if I come back to Asakusa.

Wear Kimono in Asakusa with a Rental Dress Up Experience in Tokyo

Wear Kimono in Asakusa with a Rental Dress Up Experience in Tokyo / Standard Kimono Plan and Free Walking

Reviewed by: Sam, 2018/08/02

This was something the girls (daughters & girlfriend) really wanted to do. I was not as enthusiastic about it.
When we arrived the staff was extremely friendly and immediately tended to all of our needs/requirements. We chose our Kimonos and they dressed us all up. They made up the females' hair really nice and beautiful and gave us more than enough time to walk around Asakusa after. There is a great temple about a block away to take super pictures at.
Additionally, one of the staff members makes origami earrings and they are for sale at a very great price. They also have fans, umbrellas and other accessories for rent/sale.
The overall experience was actually better than I thought it would be. We had such a great time. The downside to it was getting some dirty looks from some of the locals; however, for the most part, many enjoyed it and took pictures of/with us. There were more people who liked it than not. There was a family (Japanese) who was in there prior to us dressing up and walking around as well. We saw them later at the temple along with a few others from other kimono places all dressed up. So we did not feel out of place once we saw others.
I highly recommend this company if you want a great Kimono experience. They also have Samurai wear and other traditional dresses. Look them up (Sakura Photography in Asakusa).

Elegant Kimono Photo Shoot Experience in Tokyo

Very enjoyable experience

Reviewed by: Andy, 2015/04/11

I participated in this activity in the beginning of April with my friend and it was a very enjoyable experience. The Kimono studio is a quite small business with a family atmosphere. There were no other customers at the time, which seemed to be the standard circumstances. The two of us had 3 women staff at our disposal, who took very good care of us. They brushed our hair, provided basic make-up products and dressed us in the kimono of our choosing, which would have been very complicated otherwise. There were about 7 types of kimono in different colours to choose from. If you want your choice to match you perfectly, ask them to show you the real kimono, because the photograph in the catalogue is quite misleading. The shooting itself took about fifteen minutes. You can tell it is not a professional shooting session, but the staff is very pleasant and they try hard to make it work. They also have some additional accessories such as umbrellas, flowers, fans and katanas. Every one of us got 20 photos and we could choose one to be printed out free of charge. If you want the digital version of the whole collection, you need to pay extra money and they burn it out for you on a cd. After the shooting we received a real matcha tea and some sweats. To sum up, this activity is definitely worth the money. It is a great experience!

Comments from activity operators

Dear Andy, thank you very much for your review. We are glad to hear you had a great experience with us. I learned a lot from your review, we would like to increase more kimono selections and would like to advise more for the kimono match when our customers choose kimono. We really appreciate 5 star review and please have a nice stay in Japan!!

タイ人の彼女と着物体験をさせてもらいました

4月11日、本日はタイ人の彼女と一緒に着物体験です。外は残念ながら小雨でしたが、着物体験会場はデパート内部。高級感ただよう店舗です。着物を着せてくれる先生は、英語も出来るため、外国人のお客様も多く見かけましたよ。僕の彼女も一切日本語が話せませんので、大変助かりました。

今回は、2人で着物体験をさせて頂きましたが、男性の僕でもすごく楽しめました。それ以上に、タイ人の彼女が喜んでくれたので最高です。外国人は、やっぱり日本の着物文化に興味があるようですね。ぜひ、海外からの友だちを連れていってあげて下さい。

着物は1日中(18時まで)借りることが出来るため、僕らは電車に乗って浅草へ。旅行者が僕らをずっと見ていて可笑しかったです。外国人からは、何度も「写真を一緒に撮らせて!」とお願いされました。何だか有名人になった気分。

その後は、東京スカイツリーや銀座、皇居などをぶらりと周って、思う存分着物を体験できた1日でした。特に外国人には絶対にオススメしたい大満足なツアーでした♪

  • 初めての着物体験♪

  • 帯も可愛く仕上げて頂きました。

  • 着物で地下鉄にも乗りました(笑)。

  • 着物で頂く抹茶は格別ですね☆

  • 男性の僕でも楽しめました。

変身写真スタジオ 女性も男性も華麗に変身 振袖、花魁・振袖コースあり<新宿>by 現代和装変身スタジオ 麗

都内で気軽に振袖撮影

Reviewed by: kana, 2016/12/01

都内では体験することのできない素敵な体験でした。祝い事でしか着る機会がない振袖を日常のなんでもない時に着れることが新鮮でした。振袖と背景の種類も豊富で、悩んでいるとスタッフの方はしっかりと相談にのってくださいました。着付けやメイクも楽しくおしゃべりをしている間に短時間で綺麗に仕上げていただけて、あっという間に変身できました!写真を撮るときもカメラマンの方と話しながら和やかなムードで撮影するので、緊張することなく自然な笑顔ができました。成人式や卒業式とは違って改まった感じもないので、いつもと違う姿を楽しみながら撮影できました!
特に良かったことは、撮影した写真を全ていただけることです。その場で選ぶのではなく、データとして持ち帰れるので、家でゆっくり見ることができました。
スタジオに全て準備が揃っているため、友だちとランチに行く感覚で、気軽に楽しく体験できたのでとても満足です^_^
今回は振袖のコースでしたが、その他のコースも是非体験してみたいと思いました♪

Kimono Rental and Kimono Dressing in Nihonbashi

Kimono Rental With my Thai Girlfriend

Reviewed by: Yuutaro, 2016/08/12

In April, my Thai girlfriend and I went together for this kimono rental experience. Unfortunately, it was a little rainy outside, but the meeting place for the activity was inside and the shop had a classy feel. The person who helped us put on the kimono spoke English, and I noticed a lot of non-Japanese customers. My girlfriend can't speak any Japanese, so this was really helpful for us.

We went to wear kimono together, and even as a guy, I thought it was really fun. More than that, my girlfriend was happy and that was the best. It seems like many people have an interest in Japanese kimono, so if you have friends from overseas, you should definitely bring them to do this.

Since you can wear the kimonos for the whole day (until 6pm), we got on the train and headed for Asakusa. It was kind of funny since so many travelers were staring at us. We had a lot of people ask to take pictures with us. It felt like we were famous.

After that, we wandered around Tokyo Skytree, Ginza and the Imperial palace, wearing the kimono to our heart's content! I definitely recommend this to travelers. I really enjoyed this tour.

Wear Kimono in Asakusa with a Rental Dress Up Experience in Tokyo

Very fun!

Reviewed by: Miki Mouse, 2014/10/16

I’m glad that I took part in this tour. I joined with a friend, and it was as if we both turned into models.
First of all, the studio is conveniently located, only 1-3 minutes from Kaminari-mon on foot. As it’s a rented room in a building, it was hard to find it. When we went inside, Kyonming spoke to use politely. The studio is small, but Kyongming made us really cute. We wore elegant kimonos with Nagoya obis. I recommend the Nagoya obi highly.

They arranged my hair simply and put 3 hair accessories on my hair! After putting Kimono on, it's time for a photo shoot! I was so excited about getting photographed and making many poses in Asakusa! Please have a look at pictures I attached! We had free time until 5 so had a stroll in Asakusa. However, tourists looked at us, they wanted take our pictures like paparazzi, so we were in many pictures with people from many countries for their souvenirs.
It was the best experience ever. I would love to do it with my friends again! You should try it at least once, as it is a rare opportunity to take pictures of you wearing Kimono at this price!

Half Day Stylish Oiran, Geisha or Maiko Style Dress and Photo Shoot in Asakusa

Awesome experience!

Reviewed by: Sara, 2016/04/13

My friend and I ended up attending this activity the morning we arrived in Japan (after 24 hours of travel) and I will admit that I was a little concerned about how things would go with us being so tired. My concerns were completely unfounded - it was an amazing experience and a great start to our trip in Japan. There was a really nice selection of kimono with different vibes (modern, cute, cool, etc) with any color one could want, and hair and makeup was done to match. The staff were very attentive, and while makeup and hair was pretty quiet and understandably intense, the atmosphere relaxed a lot during the photoshoot. Even with the language barrier, it was easy to understand what to do and everybody was clearly trying to make us comfortable and happy. It was a really professionally run operation where everybody clearly understood what they needed to do and could do it both quickly and well. Both my friend and myself were delighted by the experience, and even though we still have over half our trip to go it was definitely one of the best highlights of our time in Japan.

  • After the official photoshoot, staff were kind enough to take a couple extra pictures of us

Wear Kimono in Asakusa with a Rental Dress Up Experience in Tokyo

Kimono Rental at Sakura Photo Studio

Reviewed by: Yolette, 2016/06/11

Short review: BOOK IT NOW! Do not hesitate and just do it!

Detailed review:
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time! We got to choose from a huge collection of kimonos (seemed like 100+ styles for women). The ladies spoke English decently and put in a lot of effort to putting on my kimono. I am on the bustier side (34Ds) and after teasing that they were "too big", the lady wrapped them up tightly and made me feel and look beautiful (so don't be worried, busty ladies!).

I didn't have a choice on hairstyle (or I wasn't asked what I wanted). I just let the lady do what she felt was best. After doing my hair, I got to choose a hair piece from the "free" collection or fancier ones for an extra 500 yen.

We then roamed Asakusa and felt like celebrities! Everyone were taking pictures of us and with us. One thing I regret forgetting to do was buying an umbrella to look even more the part, but we still had a blast!

I definitely recommend this to everyone! Try to go right when they open so you have the first pick for kimonos!

【東京淺草遊】和風美人變身・和服租借+專業寫真攝影體驗(英文服務)

很好!

Reviewed by: Zero cheong, 2017/05/27

這次去淺草穿和服打算感受一下氣氛,租借和服的地方有很多間,這間應該是最划算的一間了!因為有評價返現買一送一,所以兩個人才五千日圓,其他的都要六七千以上。租借和服的地點很容易找,雖然不是在大街大巷,可是也是很容易找的。和服的款式很多,工作人員的服務也很好,中英文都會說。換上和服的速度也很快,她們的手法非常純熟,腰的部分會束得很緊。可以選擇腰帶的顏色和花色,可以配襯和服的顏色。女生還有免費的簡單髮型設計,挺不錯的!男生的話相對就比較少款式,不過都很漂亮!可以穿左和服在淺草慢走,欣賞周圍的風景。沿途會被得多人拉著要跟我們拍照!可以到下午五點還和服,可是因為當天我們還有其他行程,所以我們中午時份就還了和服。總括而言,這次的和服體驗很棒!下次會試一下體驗浴衣!

着物・浴衣レンタル 上質な着物で浅草散策を楽しもう<浅草>by 美麗 kimono&culture

プライベートな雰囲気で、いろいろアドバイスしてもらえました。

Reviewed by: レーペル, 2017/04/03

休日に1日だけ浴衣を着たいと思って申し込みました。
場所は浅草のど真ん中ではないのですが、その分静かで落ち着いた場所にある、とっても雰囲気がいいところでした。他のお客さんでガヤガヤせず、ゆっくり選べたので自分にはすごく良かったです。

オーナーさんはとても和装にお詳しく、浴衣の選び方からマナーまで、いろいろ相談にのって頂きました。最初に数点セレクトしていただいたのですが、どれも自分に合っていて驚きました。和装は「季節外れや場違いなセレクトをしてないだろうか?」という不安がいつもあるのですが、そこもオーナーさんにちゃんと見てもらえたので安心でした。

残念ながら大雨で予定時間まで着られなかったのですが、次もまたお願いしたいと思いました。

オーストラリアから外人3人を連れて、私を含め4人で着物を着ました。
街中を歩いていると、他にも着物を着た人々を見かけたのですが、何かが違う!
サクラフォトスタジオさんの着物は他と比べて、とっても豪華!
色々な人に「きれい!」「かっこいー!」「かわいい」と言われました。
「結婚式にでも行ったの?」と聞かれるくらい、本当に豪華に着つけしてもらいました。
友達にも写真を見せたら、「すごくちゃんとした着物を着せてもらったんだね。」と
大好評。
今回の旅行ではディズニーランドやお台場などにも行ったのですが、3人とも「着物を着た日がホリデーのハイライトだった」と大満足。
次回また外人を連れて行くときは、サクラフォトさんにお世話になるつもりです。

祖母へはどこに連れて来られるかも告げていなかったのでスタジオについたときは最初逃げ出しそうになりご迷惑おかけしましたが、スタッフの皆様が褒めながら着せてくださり無事に着替えることができました。

3世代+主人公の4人で着物を着せてもらい、オプションの撮影も現地でお願いしました★
(+4000円で1枚/1グループ)

なかなか60代90代になると明るい柄を着ることもないので新鮮だったようで2人ともとても喜んでおり家でもずっと写真を眺めています。

また東京に来る際は是非宜しくお願いします。
親切にしていただきありがとうございました!

Wear Kimono in Asakusa with a Rental Dress Up Experience in Tokyo

10/10, Would Do Again

Reviewed by: Hannah, 2016/11/25

I brought my family to Asakusa, solely to participate in this activity. At first, they were very apphrehensive, but after donning the kimonos with the help and reassurances of the staff, my parents enjoyed this as much as I, a young adult, did!
If you're looking for a fun family activity, or an activity that allows you to dress up and admire the beauty of Japan's reach history, then this is the one for you! The staff are super duper helpful, and assisted us in finding the best places to photograph our outing! The staff also pointed us to Kaminarimon, a Japanese gate whose shopping street leads you directly to Senso-ji, Asakusa's most famous temple!
My only regret is that the selection of kimonos mostly consists of flower themed fabric; there were little to none featuring animals such as skylarks, koi, or even just trees and branches. But other than that, this experience was well worth it!
