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 graduated with an advanced professional qualification 一級講師.
I want to offer you an authentic experience — I use only traditional kimono items and choose a kimono outfit for you based on your personal style and any requests you may have. I explain about the type of kimono you are going to wear, its patterns, any meanings, formality level. I do not repeat outfit combinations, it will always be unique. 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.
