Japan Photography Tours

Japan Photography Tours

With a rich bounty of natural treasures, an abundant biodiversity of wildlife, a profound and distinctive architectural tradition, vibrant and energizing festivals, and a wealth of eye-catching cultural icons, Japan is a clear contender for the most picturesque country on the planet.

When on the lookout for the rare, funny, mysterious, breathtaking, and beautiful, The Land of the Rising Sun is the place to find fantastic sights to appeal to every interest. If you look for stunning landscape vistas or rare wildlife scenes, consider planning a tour to the region of Hokkaido! This mountainous prefecture is full of raw natural splendor, including great fields of lavender or baby blue eyes flowers, and groves of iconic cherry blossoms in spring, or vivid orange maples in fall. The coastal regions of Shiretoko and Nemuro hold countless animals and birds, including the red-crowned crane, Steller’s sea-eagle, Ezo fox, and Asian brown bear.

If you seek out quirky or memorable architecture, let us plan you a journey to Naoshima Island’s Benesse Art Site. This place is a marvel of modern art and architecture, having several structural gems collected together on one island. These include a number of buildings constructed by renowned architect Tadao Ando, including the Benesse House Museum and Chichu Museum. Also, where else will you find an island with two large pumpkin sculptures? Although, for more traditional Japanese scenery, the temples around Kyoto and Nara offer the best photography opportunities for capturing feudal Japan.

For a more energizing and joyful view through your camera lens, look into visiting one of Japan’s many festivals. The Gion Matsuri is, without a doubt, one of Japan’s largest and well-known summer festivals. During the middle of the month of July, the Gion District in Kyoto becomes a bright pageant of colorful floats in a ceremonial procession that has been held annually for over a thousand years. The evenings see the streets become avenues of mirth and laughter lined with booths selling festival food, drink, and carnival-style games. Another festival worth considering is the Sapporo Snow Festival, where enormous ice and snow sculptures are crafted in the shape of well-known buildings or popular characters. Each moment captured through a camera at a Japanese festival becomes an original memory that can never be truly duplicated.
