  • Was by maiko experience book is lost, a little late, but staff very helpful. I don't think makeup is not used only 3 colors of white, black, red and finally were told politely make requests as well as for finishing a not very. Wig chose to half-finished natural with my hair in options guys. Surprised by a really natural look in hair yuibashi you are like! Half wig is the best! Kimono is many different colors and patterns we choose what looks best on the advice of the staff is pretty worried, but. Thanks was a memorable quinceañera at the clothes may be, became depressed, but who dressed well, without exaggerating now photography is fun! As a professional wearing footwear and shooting in a Studio, tea room and veranda, outside of your soles maiko and I went to the shooting. Was a little nervous at first experience surrounded by a lot of tourists, I was embarrassed, performing arts popular-was little (lol), but camera man's friendly nature and to smile now! Makeup and finished book over failed by the time really this yourself? It was beautiful and amazing! This experience was for the first time, but little habit is going to be (laughs)

Say first of all that's good! Two of the shrine to Kiyomizu-dera Temple head are easy to follow directions so Ning slope along. Makeup have to carefully clean the small as 〇 tayu if average was so embarrassed to taste (laugh) kimono more than 100 photos, choose one of our staff's to delighted in clothes I got advice! Shooting took on the appearance of the spots were and could enjoy THE Kyoto really. (Laughs) genuinely enjoy, I float around in the city and it can't shoot out of Kyoto station and kawaramachi, and talk to friends is so you (lol) I think of each staff is helpful and pleasant staff to be from.
