ICT's Exclusive Kimono Tour Photographer: Junko Cristina Shimpo
Hi everyone! Bonjour tout le monde! 大家好！Hola amigos!
It' an honor for me to arrange ICT's second 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 8 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
in this special event!
