You can experience Oiran in Osaka! A service that allows you to shoot an Oiran with a realistic set at “Henshin Photo Studio Aika”!


Henshin Photo Studio Saika has started the “Oiran Experience” service where you can shoot with Oiran costumes.
From the store opening in May, “full-scale start” after cancellation of the emergency declaration by the new Corona.

With the concept of “authentic Oiran experience”, you can shoot with Oiran’s costume (kimono) and hair and make in a special studio.
Originally there are many photo studios in Kyoto where you can experience Oiran, but there are few photo studios that are still in service in Osaka, making access more convenient for customers in Osaka prefecture.
