Recommended outside photoshoot spots/Ninenzaka

When strolling around Kyoto, it is essential to rent a kimono and take outside photoshoot at quaint spots. Among them, Ninenzaka is recommended, with its cobblestone pavement and old townscape. We’ll show you how to enjoy outside photoshoot at this wonderful spot while renting a kimono and strolling around.

Marriage of Ninenzaka atmosphere and kimono

Ninenzaka is an area where the old townscape remains, and the cobblestone streets create an atmosphere. The moment this atmosphere matches your kimono, a beautiful landscape that transcends time and space will unfold. Let’s capture the moment when Kyoto’s tradition and modernity are beautifully fused through outside photoshoot.

Enjoy the changes of each season

Ninenzaka changes its appearance with each season, and is especially beautiful during the cherry blossom season in spring and the autumn leaves. You can take photos full of the seasonal feel while wearing a kimono and with the scenery in the background. In the spring, cherry blossom petals and kimono dance, and in the fall, the pictures of the autumn leaves will create wonderful memories.
