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.
It is getting cooler in Osaka now and much comfortable than last month. Autumn is big travel season in Japan especially in Kyoto to see Autumn leaves. The beginning of October, very friendly family joined took my tour in Kyoto. The tour is Gion area tour and there are many nice photo spots. They come with very cute girl and she was so good at posing in front of camera. It made us laugh and happy and it was great time thanks of her.
We met at Kimono rental shop first and went to Fushimiinari shrine by taxi. This shrine is the most popular shrine in Japan and it is very crowded every time. Many fox statues are looking us in this shrine and they protect this place from bad things. I took them with many Torii gates and they made from donation. Many Japanese big companies donated and made the Torii gate and then got the power of business, growing company and getting money. Not only tourists, local people and Japanese people come here for praying about that.
After that, We visited in Gion area and took pictures with Yasaka tower. The tower and around this area is very nice places to take pictures. Traditional houses, shrines and many souvenir stores. I got family photos, couple photos, and individual photos as well. It was getting dark and hard to take pictures, So we finished the tour earlier than schedule but I am very happy they like this place and the pictures. We gonna see again in Osaka castle park and hold the photoshooting tour!! I am really looking forward to seeing them again!!
It has just began autumn rainy season in Japan. It was rain in Osaka and Kyoto many time last a week. 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!!
It’s already been a month since I wrote a blog last time. I have many photoshooting diaries I want to update and will write about the end of June.
I have taken family pictures in Osaka, Kyoto and Nara. Sometimes they are big family like 7 or 8 people (Actually I have 3 sisters and 2 brothers and we’re big family too) and it was so good experiences for me. But the biggest family I have ever taken joined my tour the end of June. They are 15 people!!!! I was so excited to see and take their pictures. We started the tour from Morinomiya station one of the nearest station to get to Osaka castle. It was Saturday but less people than every usual because the G20 was holding in Osaka and Osaka castle was closed before a day and many polices regulated around Osaka castle park. It was good chance to take pictures without other people in the background.
This family is made from 4 families and Grand mother and father have 7 grandchildren. They look so happy and very closed and made me happy too. I could try to make them some positions and taking unique photos because they are big group. The pictures look so beautiful and fun. I love them and hope they like too. I am looking forward to seeing them again!!:)
It is getting hot and humid in Japan. Summer is coming soon. I can’t wait to see many tourists in Japan!!
