Tips and recommendations by our official guides

Hi there! Traveling is my passion and I enjoy it both when I'm by myself or with my accompany(s). Looking back my memories, one of the things I sometimes regret is lack of good pictures to showcase my great expreiences during my travel.

Being a local tour guide and a photographer here in Tokyo, I am confident to help you avoid this problem. In this Tokyo Night Photography Tour, we will guide you to the most iconic and hidden spots in Shinjuku and Shibuya, and let you feel the beauty of Tokyo at night while shooting astounding pictures of you.

The areas we are gonna explore: Shinjuku and Shibuya, are exactly in the center of Tokyo. You will feel the chaotic and energetic vibe of the night life of Tokyo and at the same time feel the sense of awe at traditional shrines and temples which appear so suddenly while walking on the streets. Also, Tokyo shows it's different side depends on the weather. My favorite is when it rains and the streets suddenly look like as if it is from the scenes from my favorite movies Bladerunner of Ghost in the Shell.

MagicalTrip carefully handpicked the best photospots in Tokyo. Also, the guide will here your interests and the atmosphere of the photos you are aspiring for so that we can adjust the tour for your highest satisfaction.

1 drink
1 drink at a bar

Get astounding pictures at a hidden cyber punk style bar reserved just for us.

This tour begins at a chartered cyberpunk style bar. The bar, which looks like the world of the Blade Runner movie, will not only provide you with the most amazing photos you can get anywhere else, but will also conduct an interview with you over drinks to find out what kind of photos you are looking for. Specifically, we will help you choose the photo spots to visit and figure out what kind of mood you are looking for so that we can make your tour more satisfying.


Exploring most iconic and hidden spots in the center of Tokyo with a local guide.

After leaving the first bar, you will be taken on a photo tour of some of the most iconic and at the same time lesser known spots in the heart of Tokyo. Your English-speaking local guide/photographer will take photos of each spot and share information that only a local would know, so you will leave the tour not only with great photos, but also with local knowledge about each spot.


Get high quality photos taken by a DSLR camera to capture your best moments of your travel.

This tour is divided into two halves. Depending on your preference, you can choose either the iconic Shibuya Scramble Crossing or the observation deck of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building for a panoramic night view of Tokyo. After the tour, the guide him/herself will edit the photos taken during the tour and send you at least 20 photos within 3 days. While most solo, couples, and family travelers take selfies or have someone else in the group take pictures, you will have the opportunity to make your Tokyo highlights memorable by touring with a guide who is skilled in photography and English communication.
