This is a a plan with an authentic oiran experience which is adapted to each customer. Because it's a shop with a kimono classroom and a kimono rental studio, you can find a special outfit which you can't find anywhere else. First, come to the shop with your everyday clothing and makeup on the reservation time. At the reception, the staff in charge will check the contents of the booked course and will listen to what kind of oiran image you would like. People who've come to the store for the first time, will fill in a simple questionnaire. Next you will choose one uchikake ( a long-length kimono which is worn above the tied obi belt) which is the main piece. There are many uchikake kimono in different colors prepared for you, so you can freely choose your favorite which looks best on you.
After that it's time for hair and makeup. Your hair setting and makeup will be done according to the kind of oiran you want to turn into and other requests. The basic plan consists of a hair arrangement using your own hair according to the contemporary oiran style. Wigs are prepared for those with short hair or a bob, so please don't mind your own hair style and let them know your request freely.
As the last preparation, the dressing will start. A kimono and an obi belt will be proposed according to your chosen uchikake and your oiran image. You will be carefully dressed so that the outfit will not fall apart during the photo shoot, so please don't worry. The range of your shoulder shown etc. can also be changed according to your wishes. When the dressing is finished, it's finally time for the photo shoot.The camera man will take pictures with careful poses according to the wishes of the customer so even beginners of an oiran experience can be at easy. Fully become an oiran and enjoy the photo shoot.
After the photo shoot, the staff will turn your hair to its original state. Makeup remover, lotion and emulsion will be prepared, so please slowly re-do your makeup in the makeup room. Lastly is choosing the pictures. Please choose 2 photos from the computer screen from the pictures that were taken of you. Pictures, a cardboard finish and CD data can be handed to you 2 hours after finishing the photo-shoot (it will be the next day if it's outside business hours). After receiving the pictures, it's the end of the activity.
