What you'll do

We will go around beautiful locations in Kyoto while I take photos of you in the best spots for pictures. Kyoto has a long history of being the capital of Japan, so there are tons of historical landmarks. I want to guide you to the beautiful sites such as Yasaka Shrine, Gion district, Hokan-ji Temple and Kennin-ji Temple. While I live in Kyoto, I really love to spend time in those sites. In Kennin-ji Temple, I have been attracted the change of the four season like cherry blossoms, beautiful fresh green leaves in summer, autumn leaves and snow scenes in winter. This is my most favorite spot to take pictures. In Gion district, you can enjoy view of Japanese traditional houses. In Yasaka Shrine, I really love to take a walk on holidays for relaxing. Some of these spots are very popular for tourists, but I know some spots which are photogenic and less crowded. I will also tell you how to enjoy Japanese culture, how to explore the ancient capital of Japan and how to travel safely in Japan.

More tips

You may have to pay entrance fee to temples (500-600 yen per one spot). Kimono is NOT included. I do my best to take beautiful photos, but can't change the shape of your body or make you look slimmer.
