◆Day Schedule◆

【9:30 am】 Meet at Nezu station (C14 / Chiyoda Line Tokyo Metro)

【10:30】After wearing kimonos, I take you to the Nezu shrine first to have a photo shooting! The Nezu shirine is one of Japan's oldest shrines, and certainly one of its most attractive.

 Nezu Shrine is set in lush greenery, with ponds of carp, pathways that are tunnels of small shrine arches, and elegant, beautifully colored, wooden structures that reflect Japanese culture in all its age and beauty.

【11:30】After the photo shooting, I will take you on a local tour associated with the season. Ex. Yanaka Ginza shopping street, Nezu shrine, Ueno Park by bus, summer festivals our neighbors, Please enjoy four seasons in Japan!

【1:30 pm】 End of the tour and we will help you to take of your kimono!

Asami san was the best host ever! She prepared a beautiful Kimono for me, did my hair and took very nice pictures at Nezu shrine. We also enjoyed food, drinks and had a nice conversation. If you are in Japan don’t miss this great experience!

It’s such a wonderful day for me. As I’m leaving Japan soon after couple years living here, I wanted to make some nice memories for my own so I decided to try this experience with Asami-san. It turned out to be one of the best things I’ve tried in Tokyo. I love Nezu shrine and the pink summer kimono and the sushi restaurant we went. I felt like I spent the day with a friend. Definitely recommend this experience to all :) Next time when I have a chance to visit with my family, I’d do this with them again :D

Asami-san was warm, welcoming, and incredibly kind, explaining each detail of our kimonos before we tried them on. She also took the time to help us colour match each piece together! Her bubbly persona really helped put us at ease throughout the entire experience, especially the way she directed us while she took photos. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Asami-san, from walking through the shrine's garden to the shopping tour, to trying different foods, and ending with drinks! We highly recommend her if you're looking to try on kimono + have beautiful photos come out of this!

Very amazing tour! Highly recommend! Will come back next time with my bf! Beautiful photos, nice and pretty tour guide, and yummy food. I learned a lot about kimonos, posing, sushi, sake, and culture. Asami has a great personality and is extremely kind and professional. I look very pretty and elegant with her help. Dressing in a kimono takes time and is an art in itself! Definitely go on this tour if you’re heading to Tokyo!
