Where are the best places in Osaka to take photos in kimono?
Osaka is filled with beautiful little alleyways, temples and shrines that are ideal for kimono photos! Here are my favorite places to take photos in Osaka in kimono.
The most famous landmark in the city is without a doubt also one of the best places in Osaka to take photos in kimono. Be sure to do a full 360 around the castle to get all those angles!
Osaka Castle Park
While you can get some beautiful shots standing right in front of the castle, I also recommend checking out the stunning Osaka Castle Park. During sakura season, the park is filled with the most amazing cherry blossom trees, which makes this location perfect for taking photos in kimono!
This is one of the largest Buddhist temples in Osaka and is also often regarded as the oldest officially administered temple in Japan. It goes without saying that this location is one of the best in Osaka to take photos in kimono!
What’s unique about this shrine is the ritualistic performance stage in the shape of a lion’s head.
