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. 


You can enjoy and feel Japanese seasons through the tours and workshops are a limited offer only.

I’m very happy with the photos that Manu took! He exceeded my expectations and I’m definitely recommending him to others. He was very accommodating and understanding of our situation. Our photoshoot was scheduled sadly on a rainy day but he suggested to make our one-day photoshoot to two days so that we can get photos on a sunny day too with no additional payment. Thanks for being flexible and being considerate Manu! 😊 Aside from that, we also got to see new & beautiful spots for picture taking that we didn’t know before since we’re frequent travelers to Japan.
Manu-san is a warm and friendly photographer! Our girls took to him almost immediately and was very comfortable having their photos taken. Most importantly we had a lot of fun and laughter walking to the various spots in Fushimi Inari Taisha learning about the shrine and taking photos!
