Description

Take a photographic journey through the urban landscapes of Shimbashi and Ginza, capturing Tokyo’s contrasts between traditional and modern life. Focus your lens on ultramodern skyscrapers and atmospheric alleyways, and receive tips on technique and composition with an expert local photographer. Numbers are limited to six people to ensure a small-group experience.

Grab your camera and zoom lenses you want to play with on this 2.5-hour morning photography tour that starts at Shimbashi station. Throughout the tour, your instructor and guide—an expert photographer—leads you away from touristed paths to lesser-known, albeit not-to-be-missed, spots in Tokyo.

Spend time getting acquainted with several photography techniques, catered to your skill level, while exploring modern-day Shimbashi, an entertainment district known as an office workers’ haven. 

Expect to learn the best techniques for creating unique compositions and how to use the aperture settings to enhance your photos. You'll also learn about the concept of negative space and its importance in Japanese art and photography.

It’s a short walk for a complete change of scene in Ginza, where you will capture life in the atmospheric back alleys, then step into modernity again at the Tokyo International Forum before concluding your tour.

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