Photo Walking Tours Kyoto

Stroll with me and shoot beautiful photographs while exploring some of the temple gardens, shrines, hidden streets and alley ways of Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan.

Let me help you take wonderful pictures of Kyoto, assisted by my professional technical advice and my more than two decades love affair with this photogenic city. I will help you take unique shots, beautiful memories of your visit.

There are no off seasons in this charming city, and light rain or shine, Kyoto reveal its beauty to your eye and camera.

We’ll meet in front of the Minamiza Kabuki theatre and make our way by public transport to Tofukuji temple for a stroll in the picturesque zen gardens and leisurely make our way on foot through interesting back streets and neighborhoods until we reach Fushimi Inari Shine. We`ll walk under the thousands of vermilion torii gates that run up the hillside, which were an inspiration for Christo’s gates installation in Central Park NYC in 2005 as well as being one of the few locations in the movie, Memoirs of a Geisha, that was actually shot in Kyoto.
