Recommended outside photoshoot spots/Yasaka Shrine

To make your kimono rental stroll in Kyoto even more special, on-outside photoshoot is a great option. Among them, Yasaka Shrine has beautiful scenery and a historical atmosphere, and is recommended as the perfect spot for taking photos in kimono. We will introduce you to the charm and ways to enjoy outside photoshoot at Yasaka Shrine.

Historical atmosphere of Yasaka Shrine

Yasaka Shrine is one of Kyoto’s most historic shrines, and a place where Japanese tradition and culture live on. The scenery of the shrine’s torii gate, stone steps, and trees within the shrine grounds blends perfectly with the kimono. When shooting on location, you can take advantage of the historical atmosphere and take memorable photos.

Beautiful seasonal scenery

Yasaka Shrine is also a place where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of each season. The cherry blossoms in full bloom during the cherry blossom season, and the autumn leaves during the autumn foliage season show different expressions depending on the season. Wearing a kimono and taking photos on location with the beauty of the season in the background will be a valuable and memorable experience.

A location that goes perfectly with kimono

The precincts of Yasaka Shrine and the surrounding area are perfect for wearing kimonos. The traditional buildings, cobblestone streets, and tranquil atmosphere further enhance the charm of wearing a kimono. Because professional photographers are familiar with the location, shooting on location at Yasaka Shrine can create a special atmosphere.


The outside photoshoot plan at Yasaka Shrine will combine Kyoto’s beautiful scenery and historical atmosphere to create wonderful and memorable photos. The seasonal scenery and traditional architecture go well with kimono, and by working with a professional photographer, you can take even more attractive photographs.
