Kyoto's Gion District is such a beautifully preserved area and doing this kimono dress up activity was a great way to really feel immersed in the culture. We got to take photos with the trainee geisha maiko girls and our instagram accounts went nuts when all our friends saw us in kimonos! Highly recommended!


Wonderful cultural experience in the Gion District. My sister and I had heaps of fun dressing up in kimonos and walking around the small historic streets taking photos.


Travelled to Kyoto with my mother and decided to do this kimono dress up activity with her. My mom had some trouble with the wooden shoes, but we loved dressing up in the kimono gowns and having our portraits taken in the studio. My mother shows all her friends her portraits every chance she gets. Great experience!
