Mom and two daughters (24 and 19) spent two 1/2 very entertaining hours being immersed in this experience. (My husband waited downstairs in a comfortable room with WiFi. He came up later and took pictures.).
The makeover starts with changing into a light robe, then it is off to makeup. You are completely coated in white foundation (all of your face, neck, chest, and upper back), then eyebrows and eye makeup. (Note that while I think you might be able to get them to use new brushes, that was not immediately offered. Best not to think about it too much and enjoy the experience 😏). A very heavy wig is added and the front portion of your hair wrapped around it and sprayed black more on cleaning below). Then it's off to choose your kimono, wrapper, and hair ornaments. The very professional photographer had you choose four poses and does a great job of eliciting stunning pictures. My husband also came into the studio and took pictures as well. We then had 10 minutes in a lovely covered garden for more pictures. It was raining there day we were there so we did not go out in the street but I gather you can usually do that, too.
Once you finish, they have sinks where you can wash off both the makeup and your hair. Blow-dryers and Combs are available.
The staff were all very friendly. Not a lot of English spoken but definitely enough to be understood. The package we bought included 4 poses each, printed out. For an additional $70, we got all of the digital pictures for all 3 of us on a USB stick.
It's a great way to have a unique feminine experience!! I highly recommend it.
