[Date: 20/10/2016]

hanamusubi debut1
We Ema Mino has been working with more photography crews in Kyoto than any other prefecture so far. Today we just welcomed a new crews as 10th partner company in Kyoto and started to serve with them. “Hanamusubi” is know as a merchant and rental shop of Japanese traditional Kimono, has over 120 history since 1895 that they established. Hundreds of their top quality Kimono collections have been attracting many couples in Japanese traditional wedding ceremony scene.
 
They originally serve only for those who have wedding ceremony at shrine, but now we created outdoor pre wedding packages and all customers who only have photo shooting also can wear their authentic kimono on pre wedding. All photography crews that we work with only have high grade Kimono on their collection, but we can say with our real confidence that collection of Hanamusubi is one of the best of all crews.
 
stitching of Kimono
The stitch work finished carefully by craftsman is worthy to be called “A work of art” and it is exactly Japanese tradition. Gorgeous kimono with various colored stitch make you more beautiful and ensure great photo and memorial day.
 
The shop is a traditional Kyoto’s house and its appearance makes us feel their long history. Experienced photographers take shooting indoor and also at their garden too. Hope many couples enjoy shooting and their professional service as well. They will give you underwear and socks for Kimono as gift for the time you wear Kimono in Hong Kong. Enjoy shooting and feel “A work of Art” through their luxury Kimono.

Happy Mid-Autumn festival!!
We are very proud to announce that we Ema Mino just started a promotion package of shooting in Kimono at Osaka Castle provided by En photography. According to investigation of Japanese administrative, approximately 5 times of visitors to Kyoto had flied to Osaka from Hong Kong 2015. But unfortunately no much peoples and couples know that Osaka is also good location for photo shooting. Osaka castle park offers various landscapes in different seasons. Many people visit there to see Cherry blossom and maple leaves fin its season, but we seldom find couples taking pre wedding at Osaka castle park or around.
 
Our new partner En photography is the crew located in Osaka city, has been serving pre wedding at Osaka Castle for long time. Now we just started to provide their first promotion package for those who’s planning to have pre wedding with kimono at Osaka Castle. The promotion period is from now to end of October 2016, and promotion price will be offered to couples who can give us an order until 31st October and you can choose any of days up to the end of April 2017 as your shooting day.

Booking report of pre wedding in sakura scene 2017

[Date: 06/09/2016]

Judging from our experience since 2013, the best day for cherry blossom in Kyoto is 2nd or 3rd April every year. This is a day we always recommend to customers when they ask about the best day. All we know it depends on weather, temperature and some other seasons and it cannot be guaranteed. Many of our customers that wanted to have photo shooting in the best of the best days of sakura in Kyoto, had chosen 1st to 4th of April as their shooting day so far. And as we have been mentioning the earliest starting time is most popular since you do not need to see many tourists while shooting.
 
But the situation of scheduling photo shooting in this period in 2017 seems a bit different from usual. In 2017, 1st of April is Saturday and 2nd is Sunday. So if you choose these 2 days some of photography teams charge you “extra fee of weekend shooting”. This situation makes our customer focus 3rd and 4th.
 
When we asked one of the most popular photography “Kyoto Kojitsu” about their availability of this period last week, they had not got any orders of shooting in sakura season. But now the situation is turning 180 degree different and we suggest you to schedule as soon as possible. The time they start to serve is basically 7:30, 8:30 and 10:00 in the morning. Check the following availability.
 
pre wedding in sakura scene

1 Apr (Sat) Extra fee HKD 2400 for weekend shooting
2 Apr (Sun) Extra fee HKD 2400 for weekend shooting
7:30 am 8:30 am 10:00 am
3 Apr (Mon) FULL FULL 2 crews left
4 Apr (Tue) 1 crew left 1 crew left 2 crews left
(As of 23rd Sep 2016)

Kyoto Kojitsu photography regularly swap their kimono collection, and more than 15 new kimonos are also in your choices. If you book through us Ema Mino, there is no price difference no matter which one you choose. That’s the privilege that you get from us. This is one of the reason why there are chosen by most couples. For you information here are some of their new collections. Of course you can choose wedding dress and tuxedo as well.

There are more photography in Kyoto that we work with. We just wanted to inform you Kyoto Kojitsu is getting fully booking and other crews also get their schedule busy now. If you are planning to choose Kyoto as your shooting region in cherry blossom season, let us help you.

Penalty to non licensed photographers

[Date: 22/08/2016]

Tourists from Hong Kong and Taiwan, China appear in a famous place for the wedding such as chapel, hotel or some popular sight seeing spots in Okinawa with a wedding dress figure, and take snap photos without shooting permission in minutes and disappear in a moment.
 
We call this “guerrilla photo shooting” and this bad acts occur many troubles with other tourists, photographers, facilities and so on. One report said that a couple come to chapel with photographer (of course without permission) while other couple are having their wedding ceremony. This news was on the top on Yahoo Japan’s news content.
 
Yahoo news article
According to the reports from prefectures, the couples change clothes in public toilet, take photos without paying permission fee or entrance fee, stand up on the offertory box at the shrine, and incredibly come into private area without any permission. Those photographers uploaded and publish photos on internet media and SNS, so people who look those photos misunderstand and make same mistakes. One of the most popular shooting spots in Okinawa “American Village” has a policy that photographer need to pay 15,000 Yen for shooting at the facility, but over 70 of unauthorized shooting are found in a year.
 
Okinawa resort wedding association had held regular meeting last week to discuss about those photographers lacking manner, and adopted a “statement about the preventing of guerrilla photo shooting” such as 1.Making role manual, 2.distribute manual to foreign photographers, 3.Make lists of the shooting spots that require shooting permissions and so on.
They might stop you taking photos if your photographer do not follow public rules and policies. So the most important thing is to find a right photographer crew. If you obsess the price too much, you might choose wrong one and experience unforgettable happening in a negative way.
