This was a really great tour! A very small group so you get a lot of helpful personal time with the photographer. Lukas was ours and I learned a huge amount about taking the shots, what to look for, and how to use different functions and settings on my camera. I'd definitely recommend this tour.

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.
