Kyoto – Shooting in Kimono! Advantages of Location Shooting


Kyoto is a city rich in ancient Japanese traditions and culture, and a location shoot in Kyoto’s streets and landmarks wearing a kimono will be a special memory. Here are some of the advantages and disadvantages of combining kimono rental and location photography.

Advantages of Kimono Rental and Location Photography as a Package

・Professional quality photography.

The photography service, offered in combination with kimono rentals, is handled by experienced kimono dressing and photography specialists. Our photography staff is well versed in Kyoto’s popular scenery and landmarks, and can suggest the best poses and shooting angles for your location. Our professional photography skills allow us to take high quality photos.

・No need to ask someone else to take pictures.

Even if you want to have your picture taken while sightseeing in Kyoto, it takes courage to hand over your smartphone or camera to a stranger and ask them to take a picture. With our Kimono Rental and Location Photography Package, you can rest assured that a professional photographer will accompany you to take pictures. You can also have your requests such as “portrait orientation” or “full-body portrait” accommodated, so you can take photos that you are satisfied with without having to worry.

・Beautiful scenery of Kyoto can be photographed in the background.

Another attraction of shooting on location in kimono is that it creates a sense of unity between the kimono and the beautiful scenery of Kyoto. The beautiful scenery of old streets, shrines, temples, and gardens will blend naturally with the kimono. A special photo will be created that will remain as a memento of your visit to Kyoto.

・Easy to arrange a photographer

If you book a kimono at a kimono rental store and arrange a photographer separately at a travel photography service, etc., it takes time and effort to consider and book each service. With a set plan that includes kimono rental and location shooting, you can arrange for a photographer with a single reservation. Another advantage is that you can have a photographer who is accustomed to shooting kimono in Kyoto on a regular basis.

Disadvantages of combining kimono rental and location shooting

・incur a fee

The fee for a kimono rental location shoot varies depending on the location chosen for the location shoot and the time required. Basically, the plan includes the shooting fee in the regular kimono rental fee, but the fee varies depending on the business and the shooting plan, so please check in advance.

・May not be able to take pictures calmly

In crowded famous tourist spots or during the tourist season, there are many tourists and passersby, and you may not be able to take pictures calmly. Also, it is difficult to make reservations for kimono rentals and location shoots during busy times of the year. If you want to take pictures in a calm atmosphere, it is recommended to make reservations during less crowded seasons and times of the year.

・Susceptible to weather and seasonal variations

The disadvantage of outdoor location shooting is that, unlike studio shooting, it is easily affected by weather conditions. For example, when it rains, it becomes difficult to shoot outdoors, and in many cases the schedule is changed. Also, outdoor shooting can be difficult depending on the season, such as summer heat or winter cold.

In addition to special trips such as graduation trips and honeymoons, couples, friends, and family can also enjoy location photography in kimono. Each time you look back at the photos, the memories and emotions of the shoot will come back to you, making it an unforgettable experience.

For sightseeing in Kyoto, please take advantage of our Kimono Rental mimosa’s Location Photo Plan. A professional photographer will accompany you for outdoor photo shooting.
