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!!:)
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.
It will be great season for photoshooting in Japan. Leaves are changing color from green to Yellow, Red and Orange now. You can see beautiful Autumn leaves and get great pictures with Autumn sceneries about for a month from the middle of November. Some big park has trees like Osaka castle park in Osaka and Maruyama park in Kyoto. I will take you to secret Autumn leaves place and take your pictures. It is very comfortable in Japan now, not so hot and so cold and easy to sightseeing.
Arashiyama is very popular place to see Autumn leaves because the mountains will be changed color from green to warm color. It is super beautiful and many tourists and Japanese people go there to see. You can get on a boat and be relaxing on wide river and see leaves. Some temples in Arashiyama has Japanese maple trees and this scene is very very Japanesey. You must like it and be memories you don’t forget. Of course, not only Arashiyama, Kyoto has many good point to take pictures with Autumn leaves. I will take you to the best point in Osaka, Kyoto and Nara. Please check TOUR pages and book it if you like! I am looking forward to taking your pictures with Japanese Autumn sceneries!!:)
The tour was held the beginning of September, but it was like summer day and so hot and humid. So we were worrying before starting the tour. But we were able to walk around Gion area and got many good pictures.
We met at Kimono rental shop after they changed to Yukata (Summer style Japanese traditional clothes). They chose nice color such as purple, pink and navy. Girls are sisters and younger sister was proposed by her fiance. So this tour was engagement photoshooting tour in Kyoto for them. Actually older sisiter took my tour in Osaka before a week and we already made friends. younger sister and her fiance were very nice couple and very friendly, So we was able to get closer easily.
We visited in Yasui Kompira shrine where has big power of relationship. I explained them about this shrine and why many Japanese girls came here. I would like my guests to know some Japanese culture, Not only taking pictures. After this place, we went to Yasaka tower and Kongoji temple has many colorful wish balls and explained about it too. I was very happy because they were very interested in Japanese cultures. I got many engagement pictures at these places and they were very beautiful. Ninenzaka has many souvenir shops and one of them is Starbucks. This Starbucks looks traditional Japanese house but you can have coffee and some drinks and snacks like other Starbucks. They were interested in it and I took some photos with this Starbucks. Around this shop, they found Studio GHIBLI shop and actually I am big fun of this and they are too. We were very excited and took pictures with big TOTORO. We walked around Ishibekoji and Maruyama park and I took some pictures of engagement ring. It was so beautiful and became one of my favorite picture.
It was very fun time and I would like to see them again!! Thank you for taking my tour!!!
Thank you so much for taking the Photoguider tour! I really had great time with you! Cherry blossoms has fallen already because they bloomed very earlier than every year. I have had awesome photos with cherry blossoms in Kyoto and Osaka. I am really glad they love photos I took. I will post them each tour before that I post some of them here. Thank you cherry blossoms and guys!!
We walked from Namba are such as America-mura, Dotonbori, Doguyasuji shopping street and through Nipponbashi area and see the Tsutenkaku tower in Shinsekai area. It was really great day and they were so friendly. The boy was smiling every time because he was excited to wear japanese kimono and Osaka. I gave them my favorite chocolate when we say good bey because it was Valentine’s day. I was so happy to make their great memories on Valentine’s day!!
It looks great to wear Japanese traditional wear ‘kimono’ and visit shrine and temple, walk around old town in Kyoto. It’s easy to rent a kimono because there are many rental kimono shops around popular places in Kyoto. It take about a hour to change from your casual wear to kimono and costs about ¥3000-¥4000 per parson. You will be able to rent it cheaper if you are couple or group. They have many rental plans, so you can choose good one for you. I recommend you to book before just incase. Enjoy feeling Japanese culture!!
Beautiful Cherry blossoms bloom in Spring all over Japan. In Kansai area (Osaka, Kyoto and Nara), they bloom from the end of March to the middle of April. It depends on the weather and temperature. Cherry blossoms began to bloom on 30th March and full bloom on 6th April in Osaka in 2017. I am looking forward to taking your pictures with Cherry blossoms.
