Enjoy private photo shoot and guided tour in Kyoto


I will offer you a full day guided tour of Kyoto with private photo shoot experience by using my DSLR camera.

-Fushimi Inari Taisha shrine
One of the best places to take beautiful portrait photography with backdrops of many red "torii" gates.
Also we can go off the beaten path for bamboo forest.

-Gion Geisha town
Gion is one of the five flower districts in Kyoto. It is the best place to know about Geisha, the entertainer who keeps alive traditional culture.
※In the case if you are interested in experience wearing a kimono, you can rent it at the rental kimono shop located nearby Yasaka shrine.
※Please note that separate necessary expense is required for rental kimono.

-Zen temple and rock garden
Among so many Zen gardens in Kyoto, I will show you my favorite one, Kenninji temple located in Gion. It has several kinds of Japanese gardens and tea house.
Here and Gion is one of the recommended places to take portrait photography with the feeling out of old Japan.
