I have met nice family in Arashiyama, Kyoto for photoshooting. They rented kimono and I went there early morning to see them. Kimono was very suit of them and a girl was very very cute. She has her own camera and looked like to take photos because she wanted to hold the camera when I take her photos stubbornly. She took my photos when I take photos of her parents from side of them. I tried to get along her and it was very easy because she was so friendly to me gave me great smile:)

She is good photographer, but not only that, she was so good model as well. She was smiling whenever I looked though the finder and photos came very happy thanks to her smile. She made me and her parents happy and comfortable during this tour. I got many nice family photos and her solo photos as well in Kimono forest, along Katsura river, Tenryuji temple and Bamboo forest in Arashiyama. The end of photoshooting, I carried her in my arm and she looked enjoyed walking together. It was great day and I am so glad to see them and hope see again.

Posted Posted in KYOTO

The beginning of 2020, I have hold the photoshooting tour in Arashiyama area of Kyoto with happy family. Mother joined night time tour last year and she took her nice sons this time and I took many family photos. We met at Hankyu Arahsiyama stations early morning and walked to Katsura rive first. It was very sunny day and shine made them brighter and photos came up very beautiful. The sons are very very kind to mother and they look so happy during my tour and they are also very friendly to me and easy to have communications. We talked about Japanese Manga and Anime a lot. I like this culture and we are same generations, So we watched same anime when we were young. After that, we got nice ideas for photos and tried to Manga shots in Kimono forest and bamboo forest. Photos are very funny and we enjoyed a lot. I was happy because they are interested in traditional Japanese culture as well when I explained about shrine and temple.
It was very comfortable while I took their photos and talked about many things. I hope see them again soon!!!

Family photoshooting in all famous places of Kyoto!!!

Posted Posted in KYOTO

The mom and son joined my tour in Kyoto and we had awesome time again!! It was first time to visit in Kyoto for them and they were very interested in everything of my tour. I took them to Gion area first and showed traditional town scapes along a narrow river and took walking photos. I was able to capture some good moments because they were so natural to walk and see something of scenery. Yasaka pagoda, Yasaka koshindo temple, Maruyama park and walking along Kamo river, everything are good photo spots for them and I was so happy to get many photos in Gion area. We were closed last time already, So it was easy to communicate each other.

After Gion area, we went to Fushimiinari shrine. You know this place is the most popular places in Kyoto and so crowded places as well. But it was less people than usual and very very easy to capture. In January and February are less tourists season I guess but it was the least people this time. Between Fushimiinari shrine and station, many street foods are waiting for us and many tourists got and grab some foods here. We were hungry and they got Wagyu beef and Yakitori for me and we enjoyed quick lunch together. It was yummy!!! We had a lot of energies after lunch and moved to Arashiyama area by Keihan train and JR line.

I think bamboo forest and Kimono forest are the most beautiful photo spots. So I took them to these point and captured many photos. Bamboos and kimono poles made photo beautiful and them happy. They are very energetic after walking for long time and I had really nice time with them. I felt sad when the tour finished but we can see in Australia or Japan again. I am looking forward to seeing them next time!!

I have held surprised proposal photoshooting in a long time the end of the year. I have messaged with a guy about how to proposal, where the best places and something. We decided to do in Bamboo forest in Arashiyama Kyoto and how to meet. I suggest him that I ask them ‘I am looking for couple model?’ in station and we tried to this way.

On that day, I was very nervous when I was waiting for them at the station because his girl friend accept my question or not. They came meeting point on time and I asked them about photo model. She said OK and I and he were relieved. I took them to Kimono forest and took some photos there. I tried to make him relax before proposal while I took their photos and she was enjoying very much. And then, We walked to Bamboo forest and check the best point of bamboo forest. I wanted to take photos nobody on background. Some tourists were there when we got but we could find nice point, So I sent a sign to him. He went behind her and showed a ring. She was very very surprised and crying and said YES!! I captured the moments while they hugged and kissed. He put out ipad and showed her a movie that many message from her friends. It was amazing video and she looked was moved so much. It was very happy time and I was so glad to capture the moment. We still had time and visited river side and took some photos the end of this tour. I was so happy to help them to make awesome memories. Hope see them again!!!:)

The photoshoot tour with very cheerful family in Arashiyama and Gion, Kyoto!!

Posted Posted in KYOTO

I met a great and cheerful family in Kyoto for photoshooting. A women joined my tour before recommended me to them and they booked my tour. Some of my guests recommended like this and I really appreciate it because it is hard to share my tour with many people in the world.
Anyway, They joined my tour and we visited at many good spots of Kyoto for a day. We met at Arashiyama station early morning like 8am. Arashiyama area is very crowded area in Kyoto but there are very less people than usual because it was very early morning. I took them to Kimono forest first and there are nobody, So I took their photos a lot! They had big energies and I had fun while I took photos! After Kimono forest, we were going to bamboo forest. I usually take my guests to small bamboo park but it wasn’t opened yet, So I took them to main Bamboo grove and took photos. I don’t go this place because a lot of tourists come this place and hard to take photos but it was less people and easy to take photos this time. I was very happy because they liked bamboo grove and kimono forest. After this, we visited in old temple and take photos with fallen leaves. It was very fun time at temple!!

We took a train from Hankyu Arashiyama station to Hankyu Kyoto Kawaramachi station. Kawaramachi station is one of the nearest station from Gion area. I took them to some spots of Gion area after Arashiyama. Gion area has many popular photo spots such as Gion Shirakawa, Yasaka shrine, Yasaka tower, Konpira shrine, Maruyama park and Yasaka koshindo temple. We walked around Gion area and got many photos. They wore colorful shirts and they made photos come up beautiful even dark color on background. We talked about our work and cultures each other and their stories were very interesting for me. I have been feeling a part of their family during the tour. They were very very warm and kind to me. I want to see them and have good time again. Thank you so much for everything!!

Photoshoot with great family and Autumn leaves in Arashiyama, Kyoto!!

Posted Posted in KYOTO

Arashiyama is one of the best place to see autumn leaves in Japan. I have been many times this Autumn leaves season in 2019. A awesome family joined my tour and I took great family photos with Autumn leaves at temple, Bamboo forest and more. They were very very friendly family and a boy was super cute. I don’t have any kids but I really like them and like to take their pictures as well. The boy played with Autumn leaves and looked fun so much. Mom and Dad played with him and I captured some moments. They like all of photos I took and I really like them too. They came from US and I have been US a few times every year. We talked about US and Japan. Japan and US are very different but both are beautiful and have nice foods. I like hamburger so much and they like Japanese foods. I have learned difference culture whenever I talk my guests. I am interested in every culture and like that so much.

Autumn leaves are begging to fall and will be over soon. But ground is many colors by Autumn leaves now in Arashiyama and other places in Kyoto and Osaka. It is also beautiful Japanese scenery. I will write other photoshooting tour in Autumn soon. Thank you!!

Autumn leaves have been changing color from the beginning of this month and they changed to beautiful color totally this week. I took many photos with Autumn leaves and met many great people. I was very glad to show beautiful sceneries in secret spots which aren’t known in Kyoto and Osaka. I will write about one of the tours and show you some photos.

A couple took my tour and we had a plan to go to Arashiyama and Fushimiinari shrine. But we didn’t have much time, So we tried to make rush and take photos many spots. Mountains are super beautiful and changed color to red, orange, yellow, and some parts were still green. I took their photos along Okawa river with Togetsu bridge, Mountains in background. It was nice place and very less people because we started early morning. After this, we walked to Kimono forest. It is usually very crowded places here but we saw just a few people. It was easy to take pictures!:) Tenryuji temple is the most popular places to see Autumn leaves in Arashiyama. A lot of people were heading this place. We went across Tenryuji temple and walked to Bamboo forest (Actually we took some photos around entrance of Tenryuji). Autumn leaves are very beautiful everywhere in Arashiyama. But not only Autumn leaves, Bamboo forest is so beautiful all year. I took them to nice place to see Autumn leaves where away from main street. This place is my favorite place because very peaceful and I am relaxing whenever I visited. Autumn leaves are very red and that great time. They liked this place and pictures with leaves. It was awesome day for me and hope them too. I will write about other tours soon!! Thank you!!

We were supposed to hold the photoshooting tour in Arashiyama but it was heavy rain, So we changed date and time to next day. We met at JR Saga Arashiyama station and it was sunny day rather than hot day. They are very nice family, Mom, Dad and 2 kids. They were very easy to communicate and got closer easily.

I took them to Bamboo grove first. It took about 10 min walk from JR Saga Arashiyama station. There aren’t crowded so much because we went go there in the morning. It was nice weather to walk and take pictures. I took a lot of pictures of family, only parents, only kids and Jump shots. I was very glad because they liked the pictures. After that, we were heading to Seiryoji temple. This is my favorite place because we can see beautiful buildings such as traditional tower, large temple, gate. Not only that, Many autumn leaves in November and December, large hanging Cherry blossoms in March and April. These trees were right green when we visited and they were so beautiful too.

We walked for long time and kids looked tired a little. So Mom and Dad got some smoothes for them and they got energy for photoshooting a more hour. Kimono forest, along river with Arashiyama mountains, Togetsukyo bridge, We were able to take pictures many places after that. I was so happy because they looked enjoying my tour and liked the pictures. Thank you for taking my tour and see you again!!

I met great family from Australia in JR Saga Arashiyama station, Kyoto. They have super cute kids were so friendly and became my friends at the end of the Arashiyama photo tour. They were a little shy when we have just met but they opened their mind to me soon after that. I could get many good pictures with their smiles and it was so easy to take pictures because they had natural smile and didn’t aware the camera. This tour was held the middle of March and It was a bit earlier for Cherry blossoms season but I checked where we can see them before this tour and found good place. We visited at Seiryoji temple and this place is my favorite place because less people than other places in Arashiyama and it’s very beautiful and peaceful place. It has full blooming Cherry blossoms and we could take many pictures with them. Kids were so excited to see Cherry blossoms and they were very cute like that. The tour was 2 hours tour but they didn’t cry, on the contrary they were happy during Photoshooting tour especially with Green tea ice cream.

I had awesome time with them and I want to see them again. Thank you for great day and I am looking forward to seeing you next time!!!
