If you are planning a destination wedding, Japan ranks as one of the most romantic places. The country’s traditional type of ceremony-SHINTO WEDDING- could well be perfect celebration for you!
We had a fantastic wedding. The organization was excellent and the day went flawlessly. The Wakon style staff were very helpful, friendly and easy to communicate with. We would both really recommend using this company if you want to have a Japanese style wedding in Japan, especially if you are foreigners. Our coordinator Etsu also speaks great English so no need to worry if you can’t speak Japanese!

What is a Shinto Wedding?
A Shinto wedding is a traditional marriage ceremony that takes place at a Shinto shrine using a Shinto priest in Japan.
Bride and Groom are dressed in traditional Japanese wedding attire called the Kimono.
The bride is wearing Shiromuku(White kimono) or Iro-uchikake(colored kimono) and Wataboshi(hood) or Tsunokakushi(silk paper hat) on her head.
The groom is wearing black or colored Montsuki Haori(Kimono jacket) and Hakama pants.
No matter what nationality you are, it is possible to celebrate your marriage in the traditional Shinto style.
