Our Hen Gee, had the best time ever

Takayo (and her assistants) were SO incredibly lovely!!! Our Hen Gee, had the best time ever and the pictures looked absolutely fantastic. Takayo was professional, friendly, patient (there were a lot of girls!!!) and her service is definitely a must for Hen parties – everyone loved this part of the day and could not stop going on about. 5 Stars all the way!



this ticks all the boxes

Fabulous kimono party for my friends hen party in Manchester. We took our own green tea and sake really did have a ball. If you’re looking for something a little different but loads of fun, this ticks all the boxes.

Thank you Takayo for giving our hen one to remember!



a perfect surprise hen party

This was a perfect surprise hen party for my soon to be sister in law. She wasn’t keen on being the centre of attention too much and this party meant we all got to dress up in Takayo’s beautiful kimonos. Takayo was friendly and helpful over the phone and this continued when we met her. Everyone looked stunning when they were dressed ok and we all had fun trying our hand at calligraphy on paper fans that we got to keep as a momento.
This party suited the wide range in ages as everyone could take part, it made for a very classy hen party. Thanks Takayo for a wonderful, memorable event.




昨日は美宇のパーティーに来ていただき、本当にありがとうございました。Kimono Partyということで、招待状の段階からゲストの方々の期待値が相当高かったのですが、その期待を裏切らない大満足の一日になりました。無事に終わって私もほっとしています。美宇もお友だちに日本のことを知ってもらったり、みんなで綺麗な浴衣を着ることができ、本当に喜んでいました。素敵な一日にしてくださり、貴代さんには感謝の気持ちでいっぱいです。



ぜひまた機会がありましたら、妹の誕生日やLeaving Partyなどでお世話になれればと思います。

Thank you again – it was perfect!

I’m impressed that you managed to capture 20 ladies attention

I just wanted to say what a great experience the kimono party on Saturday was. It was so very busy and crazy but perfect. I loved that everyone could get involved. My house had never seemed so small I couldn’t believe the amount of shoes and bags in the hall. I felt that I didn’t really get chance to chat to you guys throughout the party so I’m glad that you’d called before!

I’m impressed that you managed to capture 20 ladies attention and it was great to see the concentration on everyone’s faces while they were doing their fans. I also now have a new nickname of Dish which I can’t work out if it’s better or worse than my new surname of Brain!

I hope you enjoyed your trip to Birmingham and send my best wishes for kimono parties in the future. Many Thanks.

Sarah Hirst & the other 20 hens

truly special party

I just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful party for the girls. I think it was a truly special party for all the girls and especially for those who have never experienced traditional japanese culture. Lia had such a lovely time and I hope Rie will have fond memories of her party and of her friends from London. A mum of the guest






その後、参加してくれたママ達から、本当に素晴らしかった、と絶賛のメッセージをもらっています。おかげさまで、本当に記念になる良い会になりました。ありがとうご ざいました!!Mrs. Nakajima – St. John’s Wood

I had the best day in my life

My daughter had no idea what the kimono party is going to be.

After the party, she said to me

“Mummy, I had the best day in my life and I’m not gonna forget it”.

Thank you again for a fantastic day to remember!

truly fantastic experience for all of us

Thank you so much for the fantastic sushi party. My family and I had a great time and more importantly the birthday girl had the best time ever. It was a truly fantastic experience for all of us . we all agree that the success of the party was entire down to you. they were all a bit  nervous about the whole thing to begin with  (new experience of course) and you made them feel at easy immediately. You managed the group very well. You gave each of us all the attention needed. It is such a lovely experience for families to have . I am definitely recommend it to all my friends.

My 7 year old adored it!

It was so lovely to meet you at Ines’s party last Friday, I thought the girls looked so beautiful in their kimono’s, such beautiful colours.

A very stylish, colouful and calm party. My 7 year old adored it!

Dear Takayo-San,

Everyone loved the party and thought it was so original! Well done! I have been showing friends and family the beautiful pictures of the girls in their kimonos and they look like a painting!

You did such a great job of keeping the girls concentrated and attentive! A 100% success, and I really believe you have had a great idea to start this as your business.

Domo aligato kozaimas!

Utterly original and truly magical

All of the girls loved the party. The accessories, dressing up, photo frame making and origami were all a huge success. Takayo and her team were loved by girls. None had been to a kimono party before. Utterly original and truly magical. Thank you, for a fabulous party. – I want to book one for the mums, but with bubbles instead of fizzy water.

Fabulous in a nutshell!!! 

The girls had so much fun dressing up in the wonderful bright Kimonos and having their pictures taken like Japanese Fashion Models.  They were all super excited and the hair accessories were absolutely gorgeous.  Perfect for this age group as they learnt that some clothes have a historical/ceremonial significance associated to them, rather than always thinking of the celebrity and fashion they are so used to when dressing up these days.  A very fresh and creative idea and certainly the most fun I have seen a group of girls get up to in a long time.  The sushi workshop followed the Kimono dress up and that was simply amazing. The quiet concentration as the girls created works of art as far as the sushi making went – completely astounding and they all enjoyed eating it afterwards! Fabulous in a nutshell!!!  The best party Scarlett has ever had.

Thank you.

They all absolutely loved the party and enjoyed the makeover. The girls looked gorgeous in kimono! Thank you for an amazing experience

Thank you, I absolutely recommend it!
