What You Can Expect

Tokyo Metropolis Photography Tour

Tokyo Photo Tour

Take a photographic trip through the lesser-known sights of Tokyo as you learn composition and technical tips to take your camera skills to the next level. This small-group tour is a great opportunity for both beginner and more advanced photography lovers alike to gain a new perspective on this fascinating Japanese capital.

Start your photography excursion by meeting your guide in the afternoon at Shimbashi station, and get an introduction to photographic techniques catered to your specific skill level. Gain a new understanding of how to capture eye-catching compositions using camera features like the aperture setting, and learn about the importance of negative space in the Japanese arts.

Continue your photo-taking journey through modern-day Shimbashi, an area bustling with hordes of office workers—aka ‘salary men’—who come after work to this entertainment district. Learn to create artistic images of city inhabitants before a short train ride to Ginza for a complete change of scenery.

Here, neon lights and lanterns light a path under elevated train tracks. Amble through the atmospheric back alleys teeming with charming eateries and interesting signage, then step back into modernity at the Tokyo International Forum before concluding your tour from an observation deck in front of Tokyo station.

Average walking distance on this photography tour is 1.3 miles (2 km).

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

This tour was excellent! Stephane was the tour guide, and his enthusiasm for Tokyo and for photography showed. He answered every question asked with a detailed explanation. He went above and beyond showing us photography techniques, checking our photos and discussing how to best capture a story or mood. I learned so much about photography and got to see Tokyo from a very different perspective. The pictures I took the next day in Tokyo were more interesting as a result of this tour.
