Recommended spot for outside photoshoot/Ichinenzaka

If you want to add some flair to your kimono stroll in Kyoto, we recommend taking photos on location at a scenic spot. Among them, Ichinenzaka is especially recommended. We’ll show you how to enjoy outside photoshoot in this beautiful place while renting a kimono and walking around.

The atmosphere of Ichinenzaka goes perfectly with kimono

Ichinenzaka is an area where the old townscape remains and the cobblestone streets create an atmosphere. This atmosphere and kimono blend perfectly, creating a beautiful scenery that will make you feel as if you have traveled back in time. Through outside photoshoot, you can enjoy the style of Ichinenzaka and the charm of kimono at the same time.

Enjoy the beautiful scenery of each season

Ichinenzaka is also a place where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of each season. The cherry blossoms bloom in the spring, the greenery spreads brightly in the summer, and the autumn leaves create a beautiful sight in the fall. Even in winter, there is a tranquil atmosphere. By wearing a kimono and taking photos with seasonal scenery in the background, you can bring out the beauty unique to that time of year.

Professional photographer brings out the charm

For Waplus Kyoto’s outside photoshoot plan, a professional photographer will accompany you. By having a professional who is familiar with the spots on Ichinenzaka take pictures, it is possible to take pictures of beautiful places and unique angles that are missed by regular tourists. With the addition of professional technology, we can create a special piece that is a little different from the usual.


Outside photoshoot at Ichinenzaka is a great opportunity to perfectly combine the good old atmosphere of Kyoto with the beauty of kimonos. Enjoy the scenery of each season, receive professional advice, and create memories that will last a lifetime. Enjoy the charm of Kyoto to the fullest while walking along the cobblestones of Ichinenzaka, capturing atmospheric moments with outside photoshoot.
