Recommended outside photoshoot spots/Hanamikoji

Kimono rental and outside photoshoot are essential elements for creating special memories when strolling around Kyoto. One of the most recommended is Hanamikoji. We’ll show you how to enjoy outside photoshoot in this charming area while renting a kimono and walking around.

The history of Hanamikoji and the style of kimono

Although Hanamikoji is part of Kyoto’s downtown area, it retains its historical atmosphere. The kimonos here are in harmony with the style of the ancient capital, creating a beautiful landscape that is timeless. Through outside photoshoot, you can enjoy the unique charm of Hanamikoji and the charm of kimonos at the same time.

Enjoy the scenery of each season

Hanamikoji is also a place where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of each season. The cherry blossoms are in full bloom in the spring, the greenery shines refreshingly in the summer, and the autumn leaves add beautiful color in the fall. Even in winter, it is decorated with lively illuminations and has a peaceful 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 takes even better photos

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


A outside photoshoot at Hanamikoji is a beautiful place where Kyoto’s downtown area and history come together, making it the perfect place to capture special moments while wearing a kimono. Enjoy the scenery of each season, receive professional advice, and create memories that will last a lifetime. With the lively atmosphere of Hanamikoji in the background, enjoy the charm of Kyoto to the fullest through on-outside photoshoot while feeling the harmony of the kimono.
