Recommended photo locations during the rainy season.


Hello, this is Kado from Wedding Avenue.
This time, I’d like to introduce some worry-free shooting spots to blow away the rainy season blues!!

June is an important season for weddings, as evidenced by the term “June bride.” Though the term is widely used today, its origin comes from the European goddess of marriage, “Juno,” and it signifies that June, with its beautiful fresh greenery and a settled atmosphere after various activities, is the ideal time for weddings.

However, in Japan, due to the influence of the rainy season front, there are various worries that come with June… But if we have the opportunity, wouldn’t it be great to realize the best stage for a wedding, just like the tradition suggests?☆彡 This time, we have carefully selected indoor shooting locations in Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya, two each, where you can forget about worries of rain!!

Especially for those who are considering shooting in the near future, this content is a must-see, so I hope you’ll stick around till the end!!

Now, without further ado, let’s get started with the introductions♪
