What you'll do

Interested in dressing up like Oiran? The oiran were considered a type of yūjo (遊女), a "woman of pleasure" or prostitute during Edo period, in the 17th century. However, they are distinguished from ordinary yūjo in that they were entertainers, and many became celebrities even outside the pleasure districts. This experience includes hair set, makeup & fake eyelashes, oiran clothes, a Professional photo shoot in our traditional studios + 3 photos. The hairstyle requires a lot of traditional Japanese hair accessories that you don't see often, and the kimonos Obi (belt) is tied in a ribbon in front, instead of the back. You can get photos taken alone, with friends or even as a couple! You will also be given some time to take your own photos with your phone at the end of the shoot. Print and share your photos however you would like! There are 2 rooms to choose between; Sakura and Ryu (a goldne dragon). Additional charge: Extra photos, makeup items and plan upgrades comes with an additional charge.

I was born in Kyoto, brought up in Kyoto, and I love Kyoto. I am active in promoting Kyoto's likeness and Japanese style. After graduating from a hairstyling school, I worked at a hospitality business for a long time. I love talking with people. This Oiran experience opened in 2017 at the studio Arare and I have already served more than 5000 people, and many of them had wanted to know "what is an Oiran?" I will fix your make so that you resemble an Oiran, the makeup will probably be a bit fancier and darker than what you usually wear.

Where you'll be

We are located about 15 minutes walk from the Keihan-line, Gion shijo Station. Here you can freely choose your favorite kimono, makeup, and hairstyle. Let's decide together what you want to be and transform you into a nice Oiran.
