In 2020, Cherry blossoms season is coming soon!! Actually early blooming cherry blossoms are blooming in Japan now!!! This kind of Cherry blossoms bloom from the middle of February to March. I already have some photoshoot tours in Kyoto with this cherry blossoms. You can see cherry blossoms if you come to Japan earlier than main cherry blossoms season. Japan will be full of Cherry blossoms in the end of March to the beginning of April. I hope many people come to Japan and I am looking forward to seeing them here! I would like to take your photos with Cherry blossoms in Kyoto, Osaka, Kobe and Nara!!:)
A girl joined my Morning photoshooting tour and Night time photoshooting for 2 days! She was traveling by herself and took my tour for getting good photos of her travel in Japan. We visited Sumiyoshitaisha first and she has been this place though the shrine is in local area. But she said couldn’t get good photos last time, So I took many photos in this shrine. It was very quiet morning and less tourists, only local people walked and came here for praying. We got many photos with Japanese sceneries such as Sake casks, traditional buildings, bridge and huge trees. She liked everything of this place and it was very easy to take her photos because she knew how to make good pose.
We walked to Sumiyoshi park from Sumiyoshitaisha shrine. This park is quite big and has many natures. Especially Cherry blossoms season, Many local people come and enjoy picnic every year. Unfortunately, There are not Cherry blossoms yet but some flowers bloomed a little and it made us feel that spring in coming soon. It was cold but very nice day and I got photos with blue sky.
The next day, We met again in the city of Namba and Shinsaibashi area at night time. Night time phtooshooting is different as morning time photos totally. Osaka town scapes such as neons, wall arts, buildings and billboards make photos very cool and beautiful. She really like the photos I took with neons and we were so excited when we get great shots. I usually take my guests to narrow traditional path by Dotonbori. Many lanterns are so beautiful and all of my guests like this place and she liked as well. When we are walking, I told and showed her some local good restaurants in Namba area. Many good restaurants are in Osaka and sometimes local one is good for tourists to feel real Japanese life. I recommend my favorite foods during my tour because I love eating and think foods are very important for travel. I hope all tourists have great foods and time in Osaka and enjoy their travel a lot. I would like to keep helping! Anyway I had great time with her for 2 days! See you again!! Thank you!!!:)
I already have met many people for photoshooting in 2020. A guy booked tour over half years ago and we talked many things of the tour. He took his mother to Japan and wanted me to help to make memories. We met at Morinomiya station to go to Osaka castle park. Mother is very nice and has good smile and the guy was very kind for mom. I tried to take photos with water fountain and greens in the park and It was very nice weather, So took photos with clear blue sky too. They enjoyed photoshooting so much. Lighting was very nice when we got Osaka castle because the tour was started almost sunset time. I got beautiful photos with Osaka castle at some photo spots. They looked very happy and were smiling whenever I took their photos.
After Osaka castle park, we went to Namba area to take photos with neons on back ground. He like Osaka night sceneries and I took them to many popular places such as Dotombori, Americamura and Namba area. Photos came up very beautiful and they liked all photos I took. It was dark when the tour finished and we had Japanese BBQ together after photoshooting. It was awesome time and I felt it’s not first time to see them and a part of their family. We enjoyed to talk each other and cultures with good foods. They booked my tour of Kyoto as well and we met in Kyoto again. I will write about the tour next time!!:)
It is the coldest season in Osaka now but warmer this year than usual. I love winter and cold season, So I like to go out with many clothes. A girl joined my night photoshooting tour last week. I took really nice photos with neons and lights of Osaka city. She like night sceneries and I was very happy to take her photos and she loved them.
We went to America mura area and I capture some moments of her with wall arts. Her hair color is very colorful and suits of America mura sceneries. After that, I took her to river side and walk along the river. It has some neons and we tried to take photos this places too. Glasses she brought made photos very cool and beutiful. We were so excited when got the photos. Her tattoos look so cool as well and I tried to take photos with Japanese traditional buildings which are in narrow street of Dotombori. Nobody known this streets and the photos also became cool. I had fun a lot with her to take photos in Namba and she likes my photos too!! I hope I can take her photos again in other area of Japan!! Thank you!!
Many illuminations make Namba area very beautiful in winter. In Midosuji street, A lot of people walk at night time to see lights especially in Christmas season. I took some photos with illuminations in Night time Photoshooting tour.
Two guys joined Night photoshooting tour in the beginning of December. One of them has joined the same tour last year and I was excited to see him again. Another guy was traveling for ling time and has beard so much. It was very easy to have communications with them and we had a lot of fun. I took them to many photo spots but I chose different place because I thought it is better for a guy who joined before. Recently, some wall arts were drown along river and the arts are very nice for Photoshooting. Around this area has some illuminations and we tried to take photos with them. It is very cold now but actually much warmer than usual. Many tourists visit in Osaka and everybody look very happy. I always think all tourists enjoy in Osaka, not only Osaka, in JAPAN. The Olympic will be held in Tokyo next year and Nintendo area will be opened in Universal Studios Japan. I am super excited to these events. I had awesome year in 2019 and hope have great day everyday in 2020. Thank you all joined my tour this year!! 🙂
A couple booked my tour and they wanted to be taken photos in the city. So we met at Shinsaibashi and took them to Horie area. Horie area is popular places for shopping in local Osaka people for long time and getting popular for tourists now. It has many street fashion stores such as Supreme, APE and something. I am Sorry I don’t know about street fashion well. Anyway many tourists go this area for shopping. Horie area is not only shopping, has some arts which are good for Photoshooting. So I took some photos with wall arts in this area. We visited Horie park too. Autumn leaves have fallen already but we were able to see some and took photos with them. They looked have fun with playground equipment and there are no kids because it was cold and early morning.
After Horie area, we walked along river. I found a new photo spot along Dotonbori river and it has not been known well. Some artists made wall arts and they look very nice and Japanesy. They liked this places and we gave some ideas each other to take photos with wall arts. It was very fun and I got some great photos at this spot. I took them to Hozenji temple and Yokocho and have taken many photos in Horie and Namba area. It was great time and I hope see them again!! Thank you for taking my photoshooting tour!!
The end of November, I held photoshoot tour in Osaka castle park. I was late to meet a big family because I misunderstood this booking in the end of December. I was very up set and rush so much to Osaka castle park. They were waiting me and I apologized them… I am so sorry!!!! After that I took them around the castle park and play with kids. They were very very friendly and had big energies! I was enjoying with them while I took their photos. There are many autumn tree and leaves on the ground and I told them to play with leaves and captured the moments. They look enjoy and their family looked happy as well. I took many style of photos such as family photo, only kids, only boys and girls, sisters, dad and daughters. The family is very big and very close. I was very happy to take their photos in Osaka castle park and got many good photos with autumn leaves. Thank you for taking my photoshoot tour and see you again!!
It is already winter in Osaka now. I don’t feel cold so much a few weeks ago, But it is very very cold at night and morning even daytime as well. Autumn has gone and leaves have been falling and they make ground colorful. We can’t see Autumn leaves on trees but it is also beautiful on the ground.
A girl joined my photoshooting tour in Osaka. She was very very cheerful and friendly. We had such a fun time and talked about many things. She likes Japanese singer Arashi. This group is the most popular group in Japan and I like it too. I was very surprised she like Japanese group and they are very famous in other countries.
I took her pictures at Sumiyoshitaisha shrine and got many great photos because she has awesome smile:) I have written about this shrine many times on this blog. Many local Osaka people go to this Sumiyoshitaisha shrine the end and beginning of year for praying new year. I have been there every year because I was born and raised around the shrine. She liked this places and was interested in Japanese culture and about this shrine. We visited Sumiyoshi park after the Sumiyoshitaisha shrine. This park still had Autumn leaves and we were able to take photos with leaves here. It was very beautiful and nice colors and the pictures came up great too. The one of the best season in Japan almost gone but Winter is very beautiful with snow. I would like to take many photos in this winter 2019-2020. Thank you for taking my tour and see you again!!
It is very cold at night in Osaka. I feel it is not Autumn, already winter in the morning and night time. But I am so excited cause my favorite season is winer. I like very cold weather and winter clothes. Autumn leaves is the most beautiful now and it is so crowded in popular places in Kyoto and Osaka such as Arashiyama area, Osaka castle , Mino water fall, and some temples.
Not only autumn leaves, Osaka has many illuminations in this season. My night time tour is very nice to take pictures with many beautiful rights. They are only this season till around Christmas. Many guests joined my night time photoshoot tour. I will show you some of the pictures.
Solo travelers often joined my tour because it is very hard to take pictures theirselves. I know that well because I love to travel alone. They are very nice people and I love to talk about many things like their countries, cultures, Japanese food, how difference between Osaka and Tokyo and something. Everybody is so friendly and I love to see new people and help to make their memories in Osaka. I showed good local restaurants around Namba area in my tour every time. Local restaurants are not so crowded and better sometimes. Sushi, Tempura, Japanese BBQ and Ra-men. I want them to feel real Osaka. I am looking forward to seeing more people in winter!! See you guys!!!
A couple joined my tour for Pre-wedding photoshooting and their friends have taken my tour before and they knew about the tour from that friends. I was very glad to see them and be introduced. Unfortunately, It was going to rain on photoshooting day. We hoped just cloudy but it was raining when we met. We tried to take pictures in America-mura area when the rain stopped and were able to get some good pictures their. In Dotonbori area and Hozenji temple, I took their photos with Glico sign and many lanterns. The photos are amazing! But it was raining during the tour and we had a plan to go to Osaka castle park after Namba, but we decided to change date to go there. Because it was strong rain and we weren’t able to hold the tour anymore.
2 days later, We restarted the tour in Osaka castle park. It was not rain and great day!! I thought it was good idea to change date. Trees were very beautiful after rain and I was able to take many pictures in Osaka castle park. They were very cheerful and happy couple, Especially the guy was very very funny and he made her smile and laugh whenever I took pictures. Thanks to that, I got many natural smile and happy photos. They liked the pictures and it was very nice memories for me as well. They made me want to go to Philippine to see them and their friends who joined my tour before. both couple are super nice couple and I am looking forward to seeing them in the future!! Thank you so much for taking the Photoshoot tour! See you again!!:)
I have held the night photoshooting tour three times last week. Many guests joined the tour and I had great time with them. Couple, solo traveler, friends and family, I have seen guests from around the world. I was very glad whenever I took their pictures and they liked the pictures. Namba and Shinsaibashi area are very beautiful at night time and Midosuji main street will be light up soon. I will be able to take photos with beautiful night sceneries in Namba and Dotonbori area.
Not only lighting scene, I took guests to Japanese style narrow path every time. Everybody is surprised when I take them to this place. The pictures were taken here were very nice and look so Japanesy. You can make good memories and pictures with Japanese lanterns and traditional sceneries. It is getting cold in Osaka and Winter is coming soon. I am looking forward to seeing guests in this night photoshooting tour and taking pictures in Winter Osaka.
A nice family took my tour in this month and they have a boy and a girl. They were very cute and gave me great smile while I took their pictures. We became close easily and they hold my hand and walk together from seeing first time. Mom and dad were also friendly and nice. I felt like it was not first time to see them:)
We stated the photoshooting tour around 4:30pm from Subway Morinomiya station. I was worrying lighting because it is getting dark from 5pm recently. So I took their pictures as quick as possible and walked to Osaka castle. It was fine when we arrived at Osaka castle and took their pictures with it. The boy was very hungry and being fussy, So Dad got some foods for him and then he was able to give us his nice smile again:) I thought he was still cute even fussing. Hahaha There were still many tourists and crowded. I took them to less people photo spots and took some solo photos, family photos and parents couple photos. They liked my pictures and I was very happy to hear that from them. I hope they come back to Osaka and see you again:) Thank you so much for joining my tour!!
Solo travelers have joined my photoshooting tour very often. I know the reason because I love to travel alone and have been many countries by myself. It is very hard to take good pictures by myself even I have a selfy stick. Sometimes I asked someone to take my pictures but it was not great. I knew how hard to take pictures for solo traveler and like to help them to make memories.
This time, A girl joined my tour alone and I took her pictures a lot in local area, Osaka. It is Sumiyoshitaisha shrine and I have written about this place on this blog before. Sumiyoshi taisha shrine has long history and very beautiful place. Local people visit here and pray for health, happy, getting married, baby and something. This shrine has many small shrine as well. That’s why people come here for different reason.
I talked many things with her and she knew about Japan well. Her posing was very natural and nice. I had fun to take her pictures in Sumiyoshitaisha shrine. She liked this place and was interested in everything I explained her. What kind of god and what this place is on some sign but everything in Japanese here. So I needed to explained something of this shrine. I was very happy because she was interested in it and asked me some questions about Japanese culture. I had great time with her and hope see her again in Japan!! Thank you!!
Hi!! I have held night photoshooting tour very often recently. I am very happy because I can see many tourists and became close some people. In October, A guy joined my tour. He is very big and looked like a model and was good at posing. I took many pictures with neons of Namba area and A women asked us ‘Is he a model?’ I was very surprised but I agreed about this. He isn’t model but the woman wanted to shake his hands. It was very funny and interesting memory.
We walked Sennichimae area to take pictures with local small Izakaya. They have many lanterns and they are very beautiful for photos. And then visit Takoyaki shop because he like to eat. I took him to good Takoyakai shop I think the best Takoyakai in Namba. Of course I took his pictures with Takoyakai and he ate and made it looks so good. His stories like his work and life were very interesting for me and we talked a lot. It was very nice time and I hope we see again when he come back to Japan. Thank you for taking my tour!!
