Recommended outside photoshoot spots/Kenninji Temple


An essential part of walking around Kyoto is kimono rental and outside photoshoot at scenic spots. Among them, Kennin-ji Temple is especially recommended. I would like to share with you how wonderful it is to take pictures on location at this historic temple while renting a kimono and walking around.

Harmony of the solemn atmosphere of Kenninji Temple and kimono

Kenninji is a temple that represents Kyoto, and its solemn atmosphere captivates visitors. The kimonos here are in beautiful harmony with history, creating an atmosphere that seems to transcend time and space. Through outside photoshoot, you can enjoy the unique charm of Kenninji and the charm of kimonos at the same time.
