Photography along with Kimono Rental, Hair & Make-Up Services
Interested in a photo shooting experience in kimonos, but have been hesitant about spending too much on the prints because that’s the only way to get data on the disc around here in Japan?
We provide hair & make-up, kimono rental and photography services, and our salon is located in Imari City, Saga Prefecture. Only 40 minutes by car from Main Base.
Explore Translation has contracted with LUNON because we would love you to be able to experience a satisfying photo shooting session in kimonos with your family and friends, and get lots of data for an afordable price! Explore Translation will be there to help you communicate, and of course, go to a specific location to shoot as well.
Please message us for more information.
