We focus on Tokyo by night, with its dynamic neon-lit neighborhoods providing whimsical, fun shooting opportunities. We continue on to Kyoto where we seek the quiet, lesser known temples and gardens, as well as focusing on street photography in some of Kyoto’s most fascinating neighborhoods.  You will also have the option to visit the iconic temples if you wish, but our photographic efforts will be concentrated on less busy locations. 

We will also take you to areas in and around Kyoto that you may have never heard of, but will be fascinated to discover with our native leader. We will experience the late fall color in Kyoto, much of it on the ground, while the crowds from the busy season at the peak color times will have dissipated.
