Comment
It is our pleasure to meet Nagata San at wedding expo! We planned to have pre-wedding photo shooting in Japan and we had some ideas of the shooting location. We were presented the promotion packages, details of shooting plans, procedures and so on.
 
As a bride-to-be, I of course preferred comparing with other vendors before making any decision. Later, we browsed Ema Mino website and found that there were lots of local studio based in different parts of Japan. However, none of the studio in Okayama where we would like to visit and have pre-wedding shooting. After expressing our thoughts and request through email and meeting, Ema Mino successfully contacted a local studio in Okayama which could provide the ideal package and helped us to arrange so that the photographer we admired could help us on the shooting date.
 
We had a wonderful photo shooting experience in Okayama, the makeup artists and photographer Kenji San were very friendly and professional. The photos are beautiful and the album was exquisite and of high quality which was out of our expectation. We really love it! Thank you Ema Mino! And big thank you to Nagata San for helping us a lot throughout the whole process from first approach, arranging for shooting, album editing and more!
 
Thank you very much again for communicating with us! And as I remember, you mentioned that you would like to ask for our consent to use our photos as promo. We definitely would like to! Please feel free to use our pictures! 🙂
 

Kurashiki city

Finally, it will be very cold this weekend in Japan

[Date: 05/12/2018]

It will be very cold soon in Japan
It is forecasted that this winter will be warmer than usual since the early of autumn. The first snowing day in a year of Wakkanai Hokkaido (北海道稚内) was the latest ever in the observation history. It was ”Summer day (maximum temperature is more than 25 degree)” at many regions on 3rd December, like people never feel winter and still can go out with half sleeve shirts.
 
weather forecast of 5 Dec 2018
 
However, it seems to become so much cold and the winter finally comes this weekend. As you see the temperature difference between today and weekend will be 13 degree (Sendai, Miyagi prefecture), and snowing is expected at some regions. It must be good news for those who will enjoy snow scenery, skiing, snowboarding or any other winter activities.
 
weather forecast of 9 Dec 2018
 
We are contacting to customers too who are waiting for their photo shooting and asking to prepare a thick jacket on the day of their shoot. For not only these customers but also all travellers to Japan, please pay attention to weather forecast and take good care of yourself every time you go out.

Original comment in Chinese
 
We were planning to have pre wedding photo shooting in Japan, and found Ema Mino on internet one month advance before we left. Their website show many sample photos taken in Japan. After the meeting with them we clearly understood the details of the service and price. Thank you very much for support and arrangement for our pre wedding in Japan, also appreciate to continuous contact on email and whatsapp to let us know the day of our fitting and shooting.
 
We would like to thank to Kyoto kojitsu photography crew too for their service. The photographer Mr. Hiroaki Kakiuchi, assistant and make up artist had worked hard to take our photo nicely even in 39 degree temperature. The photographer even came into the river to take photos with good angles. Whole shooting procedure was quite smooth.

Comment
We found Ema Mino online and on a whim we sent in the enquiry form asking for more information. Teppei San replied shortly and invited us to visit their office for a detailed discussion. We came out from the meeting with a consensual “this is it!”.
 
Prior to finding out about Ema Mino and meeting Teppei San, we deliberated for a long time on which photographer to go for and where should the shooting take place for our pre-wedding. We had looked at numerous local photographers and destination packages but none of that felt more right than when we looked at what Teppei San had to offer. Japan has been our favorite place to go to and is a special place for both of us. We picked Shiga (out of the many options) for the simple fact that we have never been there and the shooting locations looked amazing – it did NOT disappoint!
 
The whole process was absolutely seamless and the shop offered the most stunning Kimonos and Hakamas. The several locations we went to were all so quaint and quiet that we were able to have a great time enjoying the experience (rather than having to pose among crowds of people). The crew was also tremendously helpful and delightful, going out of their way to make us feel comfortable, well fed and well pampered on the long day of shooting. It was truly one of the most memorable days for us and honestly, out of all the decisions we’ve made for our wedding thus far, this was the best one yet 🙂 the photos also came very much on time, and Teppei San is always helpful and super responsive. We have just gotten the final printed album and canvas – quality of both are just top notch.
 
We’ll be sure to continue recommending Ema Mino to all our friends who’d like to make pre-wedding memories in Japan. We could not be more grateful ourselves 🙂
