Hi, I'm Shota. I was born and raised in this beautiful city, Kyoto.
As a travel enthusiast with a passion for photography / videography, I've been more than 20 countries for travel, but Kyoto is always my best travel destination.
Kyoto used to be the capital of Japan for more than 1,000 years (from 794 to 1,868)
Home to many cultural landmarks and historical sites, Kyoto is thought of as ""The Heart of Japan"", even though the emperor and the National Diet are located in Tokyo.
For most of Japan's history, Kyoto was the center not only of government but also of learning and the arts.
Kyoto remains an important cultural and educational centre having 20% of Japan’s National Treasures and 15% of Japan’s Important Cultural Properties.
A little exploration of the city will turn up countless reminders of Kyoto’s long history and rich culture.
Because I fell in love with Kyoto, I am still constantly finding locations in Kyoto where I can take incredible photos.
I am looking forward to taking photos of you to make your trip unforgettable.
Each photo has a story to tell, and it's my job to share that with you.
In this photo tour, we will visit photogenic locations such as Yasaka pagoda and Hanamikoji District where you can immerse yourself in local Japanese culture.
Also the guide will instruct you how to pose for photos.
Guests of all ages can join the tour!
