Why get married in Japan?

If you are looking for a unique wedding experience, that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, why not get married at a Japanese shrine, on a visit to the country. Sign your wedding papers in your home country, then mark the marriage with a beautifully simple and elegant cultural experience like no other.

Don’t stress over wedding invites and seating plans: have the ceremony for just the two of you, surrounded by exotic Japanese beauty. If you like, you can invite a few guests to witness the event with you!

Maybe you are newly married, and on your honeymoon. Mark the occasion in style, dress up in authentic Japanese kimonos, and have a genuine shinto ceremony to mark your commitment to each other.

A ceremony in Japan will be like no other you will ever experience. Hikawa shrine in Tokyo is a beautiful setting, staffed by wonderfully kind and supportive priests and priestesses.

The question should really be, why not get married in Japan?

 

Hikawa Shrine, Numabukuro

The Shrine is located in Numabukuro, five stops from Shinjuku, one of the busiest business and entertainment districts in Tokyo.  The ceremony is Shinto, but everyone is welcome to experience the uniqueness and simplicity of a Japanese ceremony

The ceremony lasts just 30 minutes, but there will be ample time for photographs before and after, taking up a whole morning or the best part of an afternoon.  This leaves plenty of time to celebrate in your own way at any other location in Tokyo.

FAQs

How far in advance do we need to book?
Naturally, the sooner the better.  Ceremonies will be subject to the availability of the shrine and the priests.  Generally speaking spring and autumn are the busiest times for weddings in Japan.  So it is recommended you book as soon as you make your decision.

How do we pay?
We accept payment either via PayPal, or TransferWise.

Can we choose the kimonos?
Yes!  You will go for a fitting prior to the ceremony/photoshoot.  This can be done one day before the event.

Do we need to speak Japanese?
No.  But if you opt for the ceremony package, you will have to say the wedding oath in Japanese.  We will write it down for you, so you can practice ahead of time.

I’m not of the Shinto faith, can I get married in a Shinto shrine?
Yes.  Shinto weddings are open to all faiths and creeds.

What about legal matters?
This wedding is not legally binding.  You still need to have your wedding papers signed in your home country.  Think of this as a photo opportunity.

We are planning to visit Japan for a week or so, can fit any of these packages into our holiday?
Yes, of course!  We can meet over Skype before hand, and set everything up for you before you come.
