What you'll do

Welcome to my experience!
This is MAX 6 PERSONS GROUP TOUR(NOT PRIVATE). It means if you are 2 persons couple, there might be another 4 persons participants.
If you want the PRIVATE session, please check "japanphotoservice.com"

I will capture the best moments of your trip in Kyoto. The tour route is Hanami-koji⇒Yasuikonpira Shrine⇒Ishibekoji⇒Maruyama park.
I'm very familiar to these area, so I can not only take you to hidden spots that are less crowd for photo shoot, but also tell you about local culture, history, good spots for food and fun, and some tips that help you enjoy Japan more.

I will take photos one by one, couple by couple, family by family, so don't worry, you will not be with another tourists in photos. I will suggest spots, poses, and angles. But you can also tell me your preference. I'm very good at taking photos of portrait, couple, honeymoon and family. I will send the photos via Email on NEXT DAY of the tour.
My passion is making new friends, and helping travelers have good memory in Japan. I will do all my best to capture the beautiful moment of you into photography!

I'm a professional photographer based in Kyoto.
I learned English in LA, and that was my first foreign country that I visited. Supported by many good friends, I got really good experiences and memories there. So I felt that it's my turn to do same support for foreign tourists after I was back to Japan, and started photography service to capture their travel stories and memories in Japan.
I lived in Kyoto for more than 10 years(now I'm living in Osaka), so I know the history, culture, and of course a lot of hidden spots for photoshoot. So I can definitely help you get your perfect portrait, couple, family photo without crowd.

Satoshi is a wonderful photographer and his english is very good! He is fun to interact with and is open to suggestions on how you pose or where you get pictures taken but still keeps up a good structure with places in mind. He's very fun and I highly recommend him as a photographer.

This was a great experience. By chance we were the only couple so we got extra attention, which was great. Either way, Satoshi was friendly, easy to pose for and knew a lot about the neighborhood and the culture. I’d do this again anytime.

My fiancé and I was really happy with the photography experience with Satoshi! He was very patient in explaining the history of the location that he brought us to for photoshoot. The photoshoot was also very casual and he often tries to capture the casual interactions between my fiancé and I which was really nice. It is of course helped that we were the only 2 person in the group that day and thus felt like a private photoshoot, but nevertheless it doesn’t take away Satoshi’s professionalism. He was also really easy to communicate with and his English is really good! Definitely recommended for anyone looking for a photoshoot in Kyoto and Osaka!

Besides bringing us around for photo shooting, he has also shared some good knowledge with us on the local community...we are lucky to have the photo shooting session with Sato and his photo taking skill is superb! Will definitely join him for another photoshoot next time when we return to Kyoto!

Excelente experiencia, personalmente soy reacio a tomarme fotos pero Satoshi sabe capturar tu mejor momento. Lo recomiendo si viajan a Japón para llevarse fotos de recuerdo
