We are so glad that you are interested in the Japanese style of the wedding. Historically we as Japanese had only this Shinto style of wedding dress. As time goes, the western style of the wedding spread to  Japan and many of Japanese women liked to have the style of the wedding instead of the Japanese style. You can try the western style of the wedding almost anywhere, but the place you can experience with a Japanese wedding style wedding is only Japan.

For traditional Japanese weddings, brides start by wearing ensemble known as shiromuku. Shiro means white in Japanese. The white ensemble is worn for the wedding ceremony, and the color shows its pureness, cleanliness, and virginity. The white color is like a blank canvas. This means brides will accept their husbands' values as for her new life starting.

We will prepare all the needs for dressing you up with the wedding kimono. Only you need is just bring YOURSELF.

We are happy to hear from you.
