ICT's Exclusive Kimono Tour Photographer: Junko Cristina Shimpo
 
Introduction:
 

Hi everyone! Bonjour tout le monde! 大家好!Hola amigos!

 

It' an honor for me to arrange ICT's first-ever Tokyo Kimono Tour and be the official photographer for this exciting event!

 

My love for photography began 20 years ago. Since then, I have been carrying my single lens camera everywhere I go and enjoy capturing picturesque sceneries, nature, still-life, savory food, and my friends' beautiful smiles etc. 

 

My other hobbies include playing the flute, learning foreign languages / cultures, traveling, and meeting friends from around the world.

 

In the past, I arranged various Tokyo and Kyoto tours for my friends in English, French, Mandarin and Spanish out of which those 5 were kimono tours with photo sessions. 

 

I am very looking forward to be your private tour guide as well as photographer to capture your best moment!

 

Best Regards,

Junko Cristina Shimpo
