Japan Photography Tour with The Wandering Lens

Japan Photography + Travel Blogging Tour

November 20th-28th, 2017 (Only 3 Spots Left!)

I’ll be co-hosting a photo tour from Tokyo to Kyoto and Nara during the beauty of autumn with the lovely Becky from We Are Travel Girls and we would love to have you join us for the adventure.

When vibrant leaves decorate the landscape and the chill of winter is on the way bringing with it a morning mist perfect for moody images in the historic streets. We’ll be exploring the shrines, city lights, forests and all the little details that make Japan unique and along the way I’ll share my tips on how to work as a professional travel photographer and Becky will share expert tips on creating and growing a travel blog and social media influence.

THE DETAILS

Japan is a crazy, quirky, cultural wonder; join us to explore from Tokyo to Kyoto for one week of creative adventures to kick start your travel photography or blogging career. We’ll be photographing the beauty of Japan in autumn when the leaves turn bright colours blending beautifully with the temples and city streets.

Dates: November 20th – 28th, 2017.

Group Size: Limited to just 8 participants to ensure a small group and plenty of one on one time for photography advice (if you want!).

*Registering your details does not guarantee a place, it’s just so I can let you know all about the trip and see if it’s for you or not.

TRIP ITINERARY

Japan is filled with cultural wonders and we will be visiting photogenic places throughout Tokyo, Kyoto and the beautiful Nara.

In Tokyo for 3 nights we’ll be based in Asakusa for easy access to the historic Senso-ji Temple in the early hours or evening for photos without crowds. Get ready to photograph the famous Shibuya Crossing,  character filled Harajuku and the bright lights of Ginza and Shinjuku. Think long exposures, street photography, portraits and quirky Japanese gems.

Taking the famous Bullet Train to Kyoto we will be staying right in the centre of the cities charming Gion and Higashiyama District. From there we will explore the naturally stunning Arashiyama, Kinkakuji and Ginkakuji Pavillions, the red Tori Gates of Fushimi Inari and Kiyomizu-dera which sits high above Kyoto amongst the autumn leaves.

From Kyoto we’ll take a day trip to Nara where deer roam free beneath the autumn trees and the giant Tōdai-ji Buddha is one of the most impressive sights we’ll see.

There will be some free time in both Kyoto and Tokyo to explore on your own if you wish to relax a little, wander the markets or hit the streets if you catch the photo bug!

*Please note, the trip is not a group bus tour.
We will be there to provide directions, host workshops along with arranging transport and accommodation however this isn’t a group bus tour with a completely set itinerary. It’s a real world tour where we explore the cities, forests and sights like travellers; catching trains, buses and walking between locations. If the group is loving a particular location, we’ll stay longer, if you’re not feeling it, we’ll move on.

It’ll be a fun, relaxed and immersive experience exploring this incredible country!
