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!!
We met in Fushimiinari shrine in Kyoto and held the tour before a few days and they joined my tour in Osaka again!! Last time, they wore Japanese kimono and casual were this time. They looked different and I got many pictures in Osaka castle! It was late afternoon and I was worrying about lighting because it was already getting dark. I tried to take quick photo and walked to Osaka castle with them. A girl was shy a little when we met first time in Kyoto but she was much better in Osaka. She liked to be taken pictures and I took her pictures a lot. A father was really nice model and I took his many pictures as well. The end of this tour, Everybody smiled and I was very happy to help them to make memories in Osaka and Kyoto. I hope see you again when they come back to Japan!!:)
Gion area and Fushimiinari shrine are good for taking pictures in Kyoto and Osaka castle park is also good for short photoshooting tour. It will be autumn leave season in Japan. We can see them around the middle in November to December everywhere. Especially Arashiyama in Kyoto is very popular and many people go there to see Autumn leaves. I have some booking already and am looking forward to taking pictures with beautiful Autumn leaves in Kyoto, Osaka and Nara.
A Japanese girl contacted me the beginning of October and she is dancer from Tokyo and want to be taken artist photos. We found good place each before a few days and decided Horie area where we photoshoot. There are many good shops like shoes, street bland clothes and some arts. We met early morning and she was very very cheerful and friendly. I felt like it wasn’t first time to see her.
We went to America-mura area first and took some pictures with pink wall. This back ground we found before a day is very simple and beautiful. I got some nice photos here and moved to Horie area. We checked yellow wall here already and this is also very clean and nice for her artist photos. We talked about photos but not only that, our work, life, Osaka, Tokyo and passion. I really like her way oh thinking and she has big hot passion. She made me want to try many things I want. I would like to see her in Osaka or Tokyo. I am so glad to have met her!:)
Japan is very very excited for the rugby world cup now!! Namba area has many local bar and sports bar and many people went to watch the game and very excited. I went around Namba area last week for Photoshooting and saw many people were excited like that. I am very happy many people come to Japan and become to like Japan and Osaka!
This time was very great photoshooting. The couple joined my tour and they were very funny and super cheerful and I was very surprised because they knew about Japan especially Japanese drama well. We talked about Japanese Dramas and their questions of them were very interesting. Why the couple go to Aquarium in Japanese drama? It seems wired question but a couple in drama usually go to aquarium for dating. I don’t know why but it is very common. I have seen that scenes very often when I watched drama. I think this dating style is Japanese culture Hahaha.
We visited Mandarake where has many Japanese Anime and Manga things in America mura. They like Manga and Anime as well and i like it too. They looked very excited to see some stuffs such as Ultraman and old anime stuffs. We were laughing during the tour and it was really fun. The pictures look very happy and I like their smiles. Photoshooting tour with them was amazing but talking about a lot of things was awesome for me too. I hope see you again and have dinner together next time! Ja-na!!:)
The guy joined my tour yesterday. He is traveling alone and was very polite and friendly and we had great time together. We visited in Sumiyoshi area in Osaka and This area is very local area but I have seen some tourists in last a few years but still not crowded and peaceful area. Sumiyoshi taisha shrine is very large shrine and popular for local Osaka people. A lot of people go there for praying the end of the year and the beginning of the year. We saw many family bring a baby today. It is like a ceremony in Japan when the baby was born.
I took his pictures with Japanese things like Sake casks, couple tree, old buildings, Taikobashi bridge and more. He liked my pictures and I was so happy to hear that. He was very good at posing and his style was really cool. I thought he was like a model whenever I took his pictures. It was very hot morning but very nice day for me. Hope see you again in the future!!
They are coming from Indonesia and nice characters!! Very friendly and nice guys and girls!! We walked around Namba area in Osaka. I have held Private photo tour in this area many time. It was rain a little but we didn’t care about that and started the tour from Namba station. Usually I holed the tour at night but it is very beautiful day time as well.
We have been Sennichimae and it has many restaurant and Japanese bar Izakaya. Ura-namba area (behind namba area) has many local small Izakaya and workers go there after work often. Many tourists go to Dortobori to have dinner and something but I recommend you Ura-Namba area. We got some pictures with boards of restaurants on narrow street in this area and then went to Hozenji temple. This temple has many lanterns and local people come here and play for health and luck. The big statue has a lot of moss wait for you everytime. You can try to visit when you have time.
Glico sign is Osaka’s landmark and everybody take pictures with. Of course I captured some moments of jumping. They looked very happy and have fun. I really enjoyed with them too. I am looking forward to seeing them again in Osaka!!!:)
They joined my night photo tour last night. It was awesome time and they were super cool and looked like a model while I took their pictures. Someone walked behind us said ‘Kakkoii’ and it means COOL. The pictures was coming very nice and I will show you here some of them.
They are three couples and also long time friends and came from other part of US. Very cheerful and friendly guys made me enjoy and they looked have fun too. I tried to take some kind of pictures like group picture, couple pictures and solo pictures. My favorites are group pictures because they look like a dancing and singer group and very cool. I took them to America-Mura first and it has many wall arts and nice streets. These places are very good for them and I took a lot of pictures there.
I was very happy when I took them to narrow street to Hozenji temple because they looked be interested in it. Many lanterns were waiting for us and this places is very beautiful place and less people than Dotonbori main street. Dotonbori is good place but too crowded for photoshooting.
We enjoyed 90 mins and it was great time. I shared nice bar and restaurants in Namba and hope they enjoy during their travel in Osaka. Thank you so much for taking my tour and see you again!!:)
The nice guy booked 2 tours are morning tour and night time tour in Osaka. I met him first time at Sumiyoshitaisha station. This tour is local area tour around Sumiyoshitaisha shrine and it was less people this area because we started early morning. We walked famous bridge which is called Taikobashi. Taiko means drum and Bashi means bridge in Japanese because this bridge reflections on the water and then looks like drum. So this is called Taikobashi for long time around this area.
Sumiyoshitaisha shrine has very very long history and it is over 1,000 years. I was born and raised around here and you know this shrine is my favorite shrine. It has some small shrines, natures, power stones spots and wild animals. I took his photos a lot with big tree, old orange buildings, and it was great time for us!! And we see at night again for photo tour in Namba area.
At 7pm, I was waiting for him and another guy join my tour as well. They were coming on time and the night photoshooting tour was started. We talked about many things along the way to photo spots. Especially we all like K-POP and talked about Blackpink a lot. I took them to Dotonbori, Namba area, Hozenji temple, Glico sign bill board, Sennichimae, Ura-Namba area and Shinsaibashisuji Shopping street. We had nice time and they were very friendly and nice guys!! I recommend them some restaurants I have been very often during this photoshooting tour. I was born and raised in Osaka and love to eat, So I know a lot of good restaurants are not touristy. I will tell you some great restaurants like Tempura, Udon, Ra-men, Sushi, Okonomiyaki, Takoyaki and sweets.
Thank you so much for taking my tour twice and I was very happy he likes the photos I took. Hope see you again!!:)
