    Welcome to Beautiful Photography Tour in Kyoto! First of all, this is MAX 6 PERSONS GROUP TOUR. So if you are 2 persons couple, there might be another 4 persons tourists.(NOT YOUR PRIVATE PHOTO SESSION) 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. Kyoto is now very the tourist city, but 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 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 the photo 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. My passion is making new friends, and helping travelers have good memory in Japan. I will really do my best to capture the beautiful moment of you into photography. ※I also have photo tour in Night Osaka. ※THIS TOUR DOESN'T INCLUDE KIMONO.

My fiancé and I had a wonderful time on this photography tour. The experience was amazing. Our tour guide and photographer Satoshi was really what made it so great. Easy to talk to, knowledgeable, and an excellent eye for photography. We would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get high quality pictures together while in Japan. A perfect score, 10/10 would highly recommend!

I booked my experience with Satoshi in Osaka and it was beautiful. Satoshi was able to capture photos in various angles and settings that really showed the beauty of the city. He also took us down streets that were less touristy that we would not have found otherwise. We had the photos done at night and Satoshi made sure that all the vibrant street lighting accentuated our pictures. On top of all of this he was very friendly and had great stories and recommendations to share with us as we talked and walked around Osaka. I would definitely book another experience with Satoshi.

The photos are amazing - Satoshi always finds the best angle and lighting and makes good use of surrounding objects to create a dream-like effect. He speaks fluent English and we had great conversations. I went on the tour with my bestie and was so happy that he captured these precious lovely moments.

Satoshi was friendly and professional from the very beginning. He showed me different areas around Kyoto and took photos when he felt the location or lighting was perfect. I was nervous beforehand but Satoshi was very encouraging and would give tips and show me progress photos as we went. He also explained the history and culture of the areas that we visited. I am very happy with the final product and if I am in Kyoto again in the future I will definitely book his services once more!

Satoshi is very professional. all the photos taken were perfect. Satoshi will tell you how to pose for the photo shooting. He brought us to private less crowded Gion area. He sent us the photos on that night itself. Impressive!

We had an excellent time with Satoshi san! We have done a few casual photo shoots before but Satoshi san was the best! He was so friendly and even shared with us the stories of each location making the shoot even more meaningful! We were also extremely satisfied with the edited photos and we are grateful to have met him!

We are super happy with Satoshi's excellent work! He is an incredible photographer who knows how to perfectly capture the beauty of people and places. He made us a spectacular photoshoot in Kyoto!! 100% recommended!! Also, he has a very good level of English, a fact that facilitates communication and allow us to enjoy even more (he was explaining curiosities about the areas we visited while we were doing the photoshoot).
