Beautiful Photography Tour in Kyoto

Beautiful Photography Tour in Kyoto

star-5

In this tour, I will capture the best moments of your trip in Kyoto. The tour route is Hanami-koji⇒Yasuikonpira Shrine⇒Ishibekoji⇒Maruyama park. The main reason why you should choose this tour is that I'm not only good at taking beautiful photos of you, but also I'm very familiar to these area so I will take you to the hidden and secret spots that are less crowd, and do photo session there. I'm very good at taking photos of solo-portrait, couple, honeymoon and family. I will take photos of you one by one, group by group. So I would like you to wait for minutes while I take photos for another group. I will suggest spots, poses, and angles. But you can also tell me your preference. After tour, I will send the photos by data via Email on the SAME DAY or NEXT DAY of the tour. In addition, I will also tell you about local culture, good spots for food and fun, and some tips that help you enjoy Japan more. I will really do my best to capture the beautiful moment of you into the photography.

Memoirs of Kyoto

Memoirs of Kyoto

Kyoto—a city of quaint streets and picturesque avenues lined with wooden houses from a time gone by. The denizens of the city still embody this old-fashioned existence. Their passion for their own heritage is embodied in their fashion and mannerisms. The city’s temples are not mere mausoleums to something long gone, but are living, breathing monuments to the spirit of the city that is Kyoto. We will learn how to photograph humanity and life in the famed old streets of Kyoto. You will learn the most effective camera settings and techniques for capturing moments on the fly. We will also practice approaching people and asking them to pose for our cameras, in particular those wearing beautiful kimono, bright splashes of color and elegant patterns.

Enjoy the best of Osaka's famous street food and hidden back alleys on this 3-hour Osaka Food Tour in the famous foodie neighborhood of Dotonbori & Namba! Experience an unforgettable stroll through the historical food streets of Osaka and eat like a local in the city known as “Japan’s Kitchen.” Your local expert will take you on an unforgettable eating excursion through the busy streets and the hidden, less frequented parts of South Osaka. The tour kicks off in the busy Dōtonbori area where we will learn about Glico man, a Filipino sprinter named Fortunato Catalon who inspired a nation and a company! Similar to Shibuya (its counterpart in Tokyo) the sights and sounds of Dōtonbori often lead you astray to overly-commercialised restaurants with queues of tourists outside. We want to take our guests to places they would certainly miss without local guidance. We will take secret alleys not long after we begin the tour toward the shrine hidden from sight for the average passerby.

Kyoto Zen Temples

Kyoto Zen Temples

What’s the Story? Enter a sanctuary of Zen in the confines of the Nanzenji temple complex. The weight of the world will melt away as we explore verdant gardens and elegant Zen architecture. Together we will escape into this wonderland and find harmony in our selves as well as in our viewfinders. You will also get in touch with the subtleties of each of the four seasons, depending on when you choose to visit—contemplate nature through the lens of your camera and the school of Zen. What We’ll Shoot Learn how to work with various lighting conditions in the confines of Kyoto’s serene Zen gardens and temples. We will explore creative and effective composition concepts for capturing the beauty of each location. Taking it a step further, we will also instruct you on being in tune with the peculiarities and characteristics of each season and all kinds of weather conditions, whether that be rain or sunshine. In a true Zen sense, we will teach you to accept and adapt to all shooting conditions. Where We’ll Explore We avoid the famous locations cluttered with selfie sticks and throngs of tourists, and instead we take you to some of the lesser-known sub-temples around Nanzenji. There, unhindered by the crowds, we can appreciate the aesthetics of rock gardens and Buddhist temples. You’ll be struck by the sense of intimacy of a real Zen experience.
