Tourists come to Osaka are getting less now because of virus however it is easy to sightseeing in Japan. Dotonbori area is super crowded every time, but we don’t need to wait for restaurants, easy to take photos and walk. Kyoto and other popular cities are same as Osaka now. I hope it is getting better and many tourists come to Japan again.
During that time, Many tourists joined my night photoshooting tour and got a lot of great shots around Dotonbori and Namba area. There are really less people than usual and very easy to take photos around Glico sign and Dotonbori area. I took some photo spots in America mura area. This area is not very touristy area and where local young people hang out, So it was same as usual. Haha Dotonbori and Namba area are much less people and nice to take photos every spots. My guests liked Osaka night views and neons and my photos. Every tours were nice time and I was very happy to see many people in the world. I hope a lot of people come to Japan in March and April to see cherry blossoms and virus will disappear in the world. Thank you!!
A girl joined my Morning photoshooting tour and Night time photoshooting for 2 days! She was traveling by herself and took my tour for getting good photos of her travel in Japan. We visited Sumiyoshitaisha first and she has been this place though the shrine is in local area. But she said couldn’t get good photos last time, So I took many photos in this shrine. It was very quiet morning and less tourists, only local people walked and came here for praying. We got many photos with Japanese sceneries such as Sake casks, traditional buildings, bridge and huge trees. She liked everything of this place and it was very easy to take her photos because she knew how to make good pose. We walked to Sumiyoshi park from Sumiyoshitaisha shrine. This park is quite big and has many natures. Especially Cherry blossoms season, Many local people come and enjoy picnic every year. Unfortunately, There are not Cherry blossoms yet but some flowers bloomed a little and it made us feel that spring in coming soon. It was cold but very nice day and I got photos with blue sky.
The next day, We met again in the city of Namba and Shinsaibashi area at night time. Night time phtooshooting is different as morning time photos totally. Osaka town scapes such as neons, wall arts, buildings and billboards make photos very cool and beautiful. She really like the photos I took with neons and we were so excited when we get great shots. I usually take my guests to narrow traditional path by Dotonbori. Many lanterns are so beautiful and all of my guests like this place and she liked as well. When we are walking, I told and showed her some local good restaurants in Namba area. Many good restaurants are in Osaka and sometimes local one is good for tourists to feel real Japanese life. I recommend my favorite foods during my tour because I love eating and think foods are very important for travel. I hope all tourists have great foods and time in Osaka and enjoy their travel a lot. I would like to keep helping! Anyway I had great time with her for 2 days! See you again!! Thank you!!!:)
It is the coldest season in Osaka now but warmer this year than usual. I love winter and cold season, So I like to go out with many clothes. A girl joined my night photoshooting tour last week. I took really nice photos with neons and lights of Osaka city. She like night sceneries and I was very happy to take her photos and she loved them.
We went to America mura area and I capture some moments of her with wall arts. Her hair color is very colorful and suits of America mura sceneries. After that, I took her to river side and walk along the river. It has some neons and we tried to take photos this places too. Glasses she brought made photos very cool and beutiful. We were so excited when got the photos. Her tattoos look so cool as well and I tried to take photos with Japanese traditional buildings which are in narrow street of Dotombori. Nobody known this streets and the photos also became cool. I had fun a lot with her to take photos in Namba and she likes my photos too!! I hope I can take her photos again in other area of Japan!! Thank you!!
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!!!
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.
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!!
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!!:)
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!!:)
It is still hot in Osaka but much better at night time. I have held Night photoshooting tour in Namba area such as Amerika-Mura, Dotonbori, Hozenji temple and Ura-Namba area. Very friendly family joined the tour in August. Parents have been to Japan before but their son and his girl friend have never been. I showed them great Osaka night sceneries and take to some spots.
Mandarake in America-mura has many Manga, character figure and Anime goods. Especially the boy is interested in this shop and he knew about Japanese Manga well. Actually I have read many Manga from when I was child and like it still now. We talked about it and it was great time for us. His girl friend has learned fashion and she was very good at posing. Mom wanted to try colorful cotton candy and they enjoyed it. I captured some of the moment and they looked very fun. Dad was very unique and very friendly. I really liked this family and I had great time with them. I was very happy because they liked all places I took them and all pictures. We promised see again in US and I am looking forward to seeing them!! Thank you for taking my tour and giving me great time!!
Nice family photoshooting in Osaka castle park in the daytime and Namba area at night.
That was awesome day. I had a reservation for family photoshooting in Osaka and I was so excited for this booking. Because they joined the photoshooting tour in Kyoto last summer and I was so happy to see them in Osaka again!! They were so friendly and nice family and it was very very easy to have communication if my English was not natural. A girl was so cute and I remember that we played with bubble at park in Kyoto during Kyoto tour. I took many good pictures of her and I was so happy because she liked the pictures. After the tour, we had lunch together at Tenka Ippin has good Tonkotsu Ramen and talked about each other more. They came from Hawaii and I love Hawaii soooooo much!! The story they told me about Hawaii life was very interesting for me and it made me want to live there. The girl was learned Hula at school and she showed me it. It was amazing and she was great at dancing!! She made us smile and it was so happy lunch time and Photoshooting day.That’s why I was so excited for Photoshooting in Osaka with them!!!
We had a plan to meet at Morinomiya station is the nearest station to visit Osaka castle and I took subway to Morinomiya station. Someone sat next to me before a few stations from Morinomiya station. I was super surprised because they it was them!! It was miracle!! We were able to see before meeting point and so surprised and glad to see each other again!! They looked very good and the girl has grown up!! It has began great day already in the subway. We walked in Osaka castle park and took a lot of pictures. Cherry blossoms season had done before a month already but we was able to see many Azaleas. Osaka castle park has many Azaleas everywhere and we got many pictures with them. It was so beautiful Japanese scenery in May. After an hour from we arrived in Osaka castle park, we moved to Namba area for Night photoshooting and having dinner together.
I wanted them to eat great foods in Osaka and thought which one is the best for them. I have many recommendations restaurants in Osaka because I LOVE to eat. I decided on what to eat and it was Tempura restaurant Daikichi in Namba. This restaurant is not expensive but they serve us fresh off the kitchen and it is sooooooo delicious. Many Japanese people go there but I haven’t seen tourists so much because it is a little a way from a central of Nmaba I guess. That’s why I thought this restaurant is the best. We were supposed to enjoy and have fresh Tempra together but this restaurant was closed on that day. I was terribly about this for them. And I was thinking 2nd choice and we went Udon restaurant where close from Tempra restaurant. I have been this Udon restaurant very often with my friends. Daddy have never had Udon before and it was good opportunity for him and the girl said she likes Udon. We ordered many Udon and I was glad because we were able to order Tempura as well!! Hahaha!! Please try Tempura Daikichi in Namba if you have time and want to have real fresh tempura.
After having dinner, We were going to Namba area for taking pictures with night sceneries. The city has become changing from a day time and was beautiful. I took them to some nice photo spots and took many photos like family, solo and only parents pictures. It was very crowded in Dotonbori area but they looked enjoy and it made me very happy. Especially they liked bright buildings and I got nice photos with them. It was great time and we enjoyed together.
I really had awesome time with them for Photoshooting. But not only taking pictures, we talked about a lot of things which life in Hawaii, my works, school life of her and more. I was enjoying while I was together with them and they made me want to go to Hawaii. I really want even writing about this tour now hahaha. I will stay their house when I visit Hawaii next time and take their picture with beautiful ocean and sky of Hawaii. I am looking forward to seeing them so much. Thank you very much for giving me great memories!!!:)
Photoguider-Japan has been birthed to create unforgettable memories and capturing beautiful moments to travelers of Japan!!
It is so hot and humid in Japan and it is easy to get tired if we walk outside in daytime. I can take your pictures with sunshine and photos must be beautiful but I recommend you Night Photoshooting tour in Namba, Osaka. Namba area has many good sightseeing spots like Shinsaibashi shopping street, America-Mura, Dotonbori and Hozenji temple. You can go to Kuromon market where is very popular place to eat fresh Sushi, Sashimi, Japanese beef and more Japanese food in 10mins on your foot from Namaba station. The night photoshooting tour was born for taking pictures wth bright bill boards in Namba and show you good restaurants I recommend. Night time photoshooting is fit for people prefer cooler and darker photos. Usually I take pictures on the street has some shops and lights, riverside, narrow street has Japanese atmosphere and temple. You can join with your friends, partner, family and Of course very welcome solo traveler.
After the tour, You can have nice dinner which you want because Namba area has a lot of restaurants. I will show you some my recommendations restaurants where good price, nice foods and local one. I really love eating and I would like you to enjoy Osaka foods!! Please try this Night Photoshooting tour if you didn’t decide what you do in Osaka at night time. I will take your beautiful pictures and help you to have great foods after the tour!!
