It was amazing Valentines day in 2019. I was nervous because I had to ask them for Free Valentines Photoshooting as local Photographer but of cource it was not Free Valentines photoshooting you know. He wanted his girl friend to surprise for surprise proposal. It was much colder day but I was so excited while I waited for them. He sent me a pictures and It was easy to find them. I asked them ‘I am looking for good couple model for Valentines Photoshooting’ and worried that she accept me or not but she accepted this Photoshooting and I could start this tour. I took them pictures along Osaka castle in the park. He was very natural and she wasn’t notice surprise proposal. I took their pictures around Osaka castle and I was looking for the best proposal place. There are so many tourists and it was so hard to find good place where look nobody. We could find the moment and I was starting to take pictures of only her and then he was ready for proposal during that. Finally, He proposed her when she turn around. It was amazing moment and she look super surprised!! Other tourists came there and congratulations them. Everybody was happy at the moment and I got many good pictures. Surprise proposal is hard to make plan but it is very very happy Photoshooting and I would like to keep to help someone who want to do it in Japan. Thank you for giving me awesome time!! See you again in Singapore or Japan!!
I have started to run this Photoguider tour from february in 2016. I was so nervous to see the first guest but didn’t need to be nervous after seeing him because he was super friendly and nice guy. He came to Japan from US and was interested in all of Japanese things. We met at Arashiyama station and went to Arashiyama bamboo forest, Seiryoji temple and Okochisanso garden. I have come to Arashiyama area many times before this tour to check where the best places to take pictures are. I took him to these places and take him pictures a lot and he liked to take pictures with his phone too, So I got many pictures of him when he was taking pictures. We talked about how to take pictures and Photoshooting. He has many knowledges of pictures and told me a lot of thing of it. It was very interesting for me.
I planed to hold this tour for 2 hours but it was over 3 hours and half. I couldn’t hold the tour on time but it was awesome experiences for me and he told me ‘This tour was amazing and he had a lot of fun. You are great Photoguider. You should keep doing this tour!!’. This words have been staying in my heart from that day and I have been holding Guide and Photoshooting tour for 3 year and met many awesome guests and could made great friends all over the world thanks of him. I won’t be able to forget this experience and him.
I will take pictures and give many happy to my guests from all over the world who have never seen yet.
The Photoshooting tour in Arashiyama, Kyoto for solo traveler!!
A solo traveler joined photoguider tour in Arashiyama area of Kyoto. I have been this place many times for Photoshooting. Mountains, river, monkey park, and bamboo forest. Many natures welcome you every time. We start this tour from bamboo forest. It is so popular place in Kyoto and nice to take pictures there. I usually take guests to bamboo forest where is not known well and fewer people. It was first time to Photoshooting for her but she was looked like a model and natural. Usually everybody is nervous a little when I take pictures of them first time, So I always make them to be relax. This time I didn’t need to make her to be and could get many good pictures.
And then we walked to Seiryoji temple is large temple and away from bamboo forest a little. This place is very beautiful place to visit especially Autumn leaves season but unfortunately there are not red leaves there this time. But it was enough beautiful to take pictures and we got it a lot. I recommend Seiryoji temple to everybody who going to Arashiyama area in Kyoto. I have been there many times but never seen many people there and so peaceful.
The last place of this tour was Togetsu bridge. This bridge is very popular and famous in Arashiyama and a lot of people visit and take pictures there. We saw many students who come here for school trip and the girl wanted to take picture with them. It was amazing memories for her and they were glad too. I really enjoyed this tour with her and I hope see her again in Tokyo next time!!
Photoshooting tour with Autumn leaves at Yoyogi park and Harajuku in Tokyo!!
The tour was held at Yoyogi park and Harajuku in Tokyo last Autumn season. They are super close friends and I have seen one of them last year in Osaka. This was her second time to take my tour. I was so happy to see her again in Tokyo. There are many people in Harajuku area especially afternoon, So we met early morning and take pictures there. Shops in Harajuku like clothes, crape, sweets and wall arts are good for back ground of Photo shooting. I checked good photo spots in Harajuku area before a few days and I was so happy because they liked these places I checked. We walked around Harajuku area and through shrine and Takeshita street and got to Yoyogi park. Autumn leaves were super beautiful in the park. Everything was brown and orange and it was quite Autumn color in Japan. They enjoyed scattering a lot of Autumn leaves each other and I took many pictures of the moments. It was so fun for us and got many awesome pictures. I really enjoyed this tour with them and they said me they were enjoying the tour. I am looking forward to see them again in Japan or Malaysia!! Thank you so much!!!

The Cherry blossoms season is coming soon in Japan. They are usually full bloom around the end of March and beginning of April but sometimes it changes depend on temperature and places.

There are really beautiful red leaves in Kyoto in the end of October to November. We visit to Chishakuin temple to see leaves and take pictures there. They were super red and looked very beautiful with a little greens. It was the best season to see them and travel in Japan. After that, took pictures with many Torii gates in fushimiinari shrine and visited Arashiyama area. There are many people especially in Bamboo forest everyday. But some bamboo forests aren’t known very well and I took them there and took pictures a lot. Arashiyama area is very nice places such as Tenryuji temple, Arashiyama monkey park, Togetsu bridge and Kimono forest to sightseeing and take pictures. You should go there in Cherry blossoms season and Autumn leaves season. You can see amazing scenes there!!

Surprise proposal Photoshoot in Kyoto
It’s too late to write about great Photoshoot early summer 2018 but I will write how amazing here now. A guy contacted me about surprised proposal in Kyoto and I was so excited when I got a message from him. We have considered many time where and when the best for proposing and decide Chishakuin temple where is very famous for Hydrangeas. It was very awesome everything on the day. He proposed in front of many Hydrangeas and his partner was crying when she heard the word from him. I could see the best happiest time in their life. After that, We enjoyed photoshoot in Kyoto and had great time. I hope they are well and see them again in Japan.

He is still young and has nice smile but looked mature when I took pictures. After America-mura, went to Doutonbori area where is the most popular place in Osaka. It is very beautiful billboard, neon and traditional narrow paths. I love to take pictures here especially night time. He also liked this place and enjoyed photoshooting.
