As I am a HongKonger, this makes me surprised and delights me!), so customers do not need to worry about the communication barriers.They also provide a special plan for the customers who want to participate in summer festival.

Where to take photos?

Asakusa is definitely a great place to experience kimono/yukata because of its historical buildings and streets. I am going to recommend 3 spots to take photos with kimono.

Kaminarimon Gate

 

top3

Kaminarimon Gate is one of the most popular tourist spot in Asakusa. The red lantern is a famous photo spot and symbol of Asakusa. Wearing kimono/yukata, walking on the historical street and enjoying traditional Japanese street food such as Taiyaki and Ningyo Yaki will make you feel like a town-girl from Edo period.

 

 Rooftop terrace of Asakusa EKIMISE

You can enjoy the city view of Asakusa and Skytree from the rooftop terrace of Asakusa EKIMISE. Wearing kimono/yukata and taking pictures with skytree is absolutely an unique experience!

Asakusa Shrine

Asakusa Shrine is designated as an “Important Cultural Property”. Taking photos in this historical shrine is definitely an unforgettable memory for visitors. Visitors can also buy amulet in this shrine.
