Kimono Styling, Lecture & Photoshoot

I offer personalized kimono experience: kimono styling, combined with an explanation about kimono and a professional photoshoot. I do my best to create a unique kimono outfit for you — an outfit made of traditional, authentic items — and take professional portraits of you. Every outfit is unique, as I don't repeat same outfit combinations.

About Me

I am a professional licensed kimono stylist and photographer based in Tokyo, Asakusa.

I started my adventure with photography in 2016. I worked with KIRIN Australia on their First Press Photography campaign and with GirlGaze as a BTS photographer, among others. I specialize in street and portrait photography

I developed an interest in kimono and in 2017 I started attending Aoyama Kimono Gakuin. In 2019 I acquired a professional kimono consultant and stylist licence. In February 2021 I grduted with an advanced professional qualification.

I want to offer you an authentic experience — I use only traditional vintage items and choose a kimono outfit for you based on your personal style and any requests you may have. I tell you about the meaning of each little item, add historical and cultural background, all while I dress you. I provide high quality portrait photos, which become tangible memories of your personalized kimono experience.

My photography and work have been featured in magazines, newspapers, YouTube videos, radio and TV.

I run my own kimono studio in Asakusa, where all the styling and preparations for the shoot take place.
