What we’ll do

We’ll meet you at Omichou Market, a downtown market buzzing with local delicacies and attire. From here, we’ll walk for couple of minutes to our changing room area.

What else you should know

In the summer months (June-September), we will use yukata instead of Kimonos. Yukata's are essentially a lighter version of the kimono. It is too hot during summer to wear a kimono. Please return kimonos by 6pm. Men will not receive hair set up.

Where you'll be

Our kimono and yukata's will be based at Omichou Market. This is where you will change into your outfit for the day. From here, we'll visit Oyama Shrine, Gyokusen'inmaru Park and Kanazawa Castle Park. Each of these three locations will feature gorgeous photo opportunities.
