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