YOTSUYA BASE NEW USAGE FEE
First, thank you very much for your support of the cosplay-specialized photography studio known as "Yotsuya BASE".
My name is Ogawa, and I am the President of LOL Co., Ltd., the operator.
This is Ogawa, chief of Yotsuya Base.
We have some important news for our customers.
It will take a long time, but
please read everything through the end.
First of all, let me apologize from the bottom of my heart.
I am very Sorry.
The reason is...
...about the studio usage fee, as you can see in the title.
Since opening (July 2022), our purpose is to create a studio which is affordable for everyone, high quality and realistic booths where is easy to photoshoot in.
Thanks to all of you, we were able to have results that exceeded our expectations, and all the staff were very proud and looking forward to make your shooting better and better!
We are very grateful to all our customers.
However, there is a reason why we had no choice but to revise the studio price as a company.
Let me begin, we bought materials from outside Japan, raw materials then the prices of utilities, fixtures, and consumables are also rised one after another.
Off course, I have any intentions to use all these things as an excuse.
I will be honest with you.
In November 2022 the new booths will be completed as we scheduled:
"Another World Guild", "Prison", "Cave", and "Japanese-style room".
Regarding those the budget has been greatly exceeded, and as a result, it is difficult to operate the studio with the current usage fee and price list.
The booths our customer have been used until now, has been made up of craftsmanship, DIY skills ideas and effort of the staff as much as possible.
However, for these three new area, it was absolutely necessary asking to a professional company to do this kind of work.
The warmth of medieval wood, the texture of unrefined iron, the rocky surface that makes you feel cool and lonely, the heart-thumping dragon's legs, the prison that gives you despair, the majestic harmony of old and new...
Once you see the result, if you take some moments to enjoy the details, we are pretty confident that you will be satisfied with the finished product.
The staff did their best to cut the costs as much as they can.
Until now, everything was hand made!
Based on this、
The new fees will be active from January 2023.
Honestly, I was thinking of increasing the amount by 2,000 yen.
However, Yotsuya BASE's greatest strength "Low price" and "convenient" will be lost.
The staff and many people also agree with this.
"I want people to enjoy shooting as if they were in a convenience store."
I remembered my original intention, and the price was raised by 500 yen per half day.
We would like to ask for your understanding, and we apologize for the inconvenience.
"Let's raise Yotsuya BASE with our own hands"!
I would appreciate it if you can forgive me.
We will continue to strive to operate a “low price”, “high quality” and “convenient” cosplay studio, so we appreciate your support.
Thank you very much.
