Once in a Lifetime Moment


Good Memories with Good Photos

Photoguider Japan has been birthed to create unforgettable memories and capturing beautiful moments to travelers of Japan. I will guide you through historic Japanese locations, and capture moments through my lens for you to remember forever. I’m not only taking photos, but I’m capturing emotions.  I will take you to destination sites through the eyes of a Japanese native, and show you glimpses of places unseen.
I am passionate about creating an awesome experience for all travelers, and I take this philosophy with every photo guided tour.
Please feel free to send me any suggestions, I am very open to feedback.  To plan your next surprise proposal, I will play my part and ACTING comes with no extra charge!

Special Moment

Surprise Proposal

For any surprise proposals, I will make sure you and your partner have the BEST possible experience. I will be completely at your disposal, and will play along with any surprise. Please feel free to request any items before the special day, whether that’s ordering a bouquet of flowers, balloons. I am flexible and we can discuss. I will help plan and make recommendations for the ideal location and time to capture the most spectacular moments.


Honeymoons make for a spectacular photoguider occasion. Renting kimonos for photos are a very popular pairing, I can help make recommendations on the shops, and will make sure to capture these magical moments for all to see.

Birthday photos

Birthday photos are a perfect occasion for Photoguider. Time flies when you’re having fun, capture all your precious family moments without missing a beat. I am very experienced working with children and am well versed in action photography. You won’t miss a moment and can focus on enjoying your beautiful vacation in Japan.

Osaka is the second largest city in Japan, but #1 in my heart. with a truly unique culture.  People here are warm and funny, in fact most Japanese comedians come from this area.

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.

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).

Welcome to Tokyo, the capital of Japan. Tokyo is filled with awesome and unique experiences and of course, beautiful sceneries to capture through the lens.

Manu extremely professional, informative, and friendly. He took the time to get to know us and made recommendations based on our initial conversation. He was personable making the photo shoot comfortable. Such an enjoyable experience. Received the edited pictures timely and was completely blown away with the final product. I highly recommend hiring Manu. Planning to re hire him the next time he decides to visit Hawaii to take more pictures. He was able to capture precious moments that will last a lifetime.
My family and I had the BEST TIME shooting with Manu! As soon as we met he was super nice, friendly and outgoing. He made us feel comfortable the whole time and suggested extra areas to shoot. He was beyond wonderful with my 3 year old so and my husband loved talking to him about the culture and food. My husband doesn’t usually like taking pictures but really enjoyed the time we spent with Manu. He told me he wished that we could hang out with him outside of shoot. He was extremely accommodating and very communicative as well as open to suggestions. He also sent us food recommendations after the shoot. I also asked if he could send me a few ahead of time and he was more than accommodating. The rest of the pictures came the very next day. We highly recommend Manu and hope to hire him again if we are ever in Osaka. Thank you Manu, it was an amazing experience!
