What you'll do

In a small group, we will head out together in the old streets of Gion for our photos. For a few minutes near the meeting spot, we will sit down and do some briefing of expectations and fun ideas for our photo shoot. We will start directly at the historical and famous Shirakawa river. Then I`ll take you to my favorite spots and some hidden backstreets of Gion to get away from the beaten tourist paths. I will take your photos in some of the most traditional & historical neighborhoods with old wooden buildings, hidden streets, gardens, shrines, and temples, A great feeling of old Kyoto! As a local here in Kyoto, I have learned the Japanese culture & history here the hard way and most of what I know today might even be hard to find in guidebooks. While walking around together I will give you insights into Japanese culture, fun facts, history not even a local would be able to give you! After a long walk and photo shoot together we will sit down over at a local cafe relaxing with a cup of tea or coffee while chatting and of course enjoying some of our taken photos!

Hi, I'm a local photographer and guide living here in Kyoto for many years! I love Kyoto and it's many aspects of culture, history, and beauty. As a guide here in Kyoto, I have been guiding tourists from around the world. Since a few years back, I got stuck in a studio taking cool traditional photos of people transforming into Oiran. (Really fun!) But now I'm here to get out of the studio to bring the fun outside to our beautiful old streets of Kyoto! My goal is to take your amazing photos while also giving you some information and history of the places we visit!

What's included

Equipment
Camera & more than 25 taken, edited photos from our walk together!
