Your Photographer and Tour-Guide in Japan. Helping you create memories through photos.
Unique culture, kind and humorous people, delicious food! Osaka is the second largest city in Japan. From the impressive Osaka castle and the beautiful skyscrapers, to the lively downtown area where we can grab a taste of delicious Osaka delicacies (Takoyaki, Okonomiyaki, etc), let me show you my Osaka.
You can touch and feel JAPAN in Kyoto. There are numerous great sites to take pictures in, such as the Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, Temple of the Golden Pavilion, Imperial Palace, beautiful mountains and rivers. Make your experience even more authentic by roaming the streets of Kyoto, wearing a traditional Japanese Kimono.
You will be welcomed by a lot of wild deer at one of Japan's oldest park in Japan, Nara Park (a 3-minutes walk from Kintetsu Nara station). Designated as National Treasures, you can feed the friendly deer, as well as pose of photos with them. Nara is also home to the world's largest bronze statue of Buddha, located in Todai-ji (East Great Temple) which is a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site.
I enagaged Manu about 2 weeks to the trip and told him that I only wanted to capture photos of my son and family as well around Nara deer park for the entire 2 hours. He was very accommodating to that and took many many photos of us (especially of my son), and giving me the link to download them immediately the next day! The photos were vvv awesome-i love them way too much😁 During the photoshoot Manu was super nice and even helped us to hold onto my baby's hand for abit! He was very easy to talk to and to be honest i didn't expect to be able to hold a conversation with him as i thought he might not be that well versed in English but i could not be more wrong. Manu was also very nice to change the time of the shoot on the morning itself as I miscalculated my baby's nap time. I was hopeful and definitely not expecting to be able to get a later timing but he made it happen:) It was a wonderful experience and i will definitely engage Manu again when i return to Osaka or Kyoto next time round!

We booked a photo tour with Manu visiting Osaka Castle and Dotonbori, he is very relaxed and friendly. He knew all the right photo spots and took great photos of our visit. We were so happy with the experience we ended up booking a second session in Bamboo Forest outside of Kyoto with him. Besides getting a relaxed tour with professional-grade photos his friendlyness and interest gave us the opportunity to ask questions and better get to know Japan and Osaka from a Japanese native. Unique experience highly recommended! Manu, see you next time we visit!
