Layering colorful kimono over kimono and wearing her beautiful and long hair down…some of you might have dreamed about Japanese princesses in the Heian period. Junihitoe is known as the costume which appears in the famous Heian-period novel “The Tale of Genji” and which was actually worn by Murasaki Shikibu. There is a place in Arashiyama, Kyoto, where you, too, can try wearing junihitoe, the Japanese traditional kimono.
It is exciting to watch yourself transform. Enjoy a taste of the elegant world away from everyday life!

Recommendation Points・Transform yourself with mizugesho, the traditional Japanese makeup!
・Wear the authentic and Japanese costume which is intricately made
・Bring back home the high resolution photos taken at the studio, as a souvenir
Remove all makeup you are wearing and put “bin tsuke abura (hair oil)” all over your face. “Bin tsuke abura” is made of plant-based oil such as Japan wax, and does not harm your skin!
