It was easy to find So, easy to talk to, and easy to trust and relate. He is a friendly soul, who is extremely experienced and creative. Follow his directions and you’ll be happy with the end results. I am already planning on coming back to Tokyo next year and will definitely be booking again. Enjoy your time and have fun!

So was such a pleasure to work with! Even from the start he was accommodating of my tight schedule. After we met up he guided us to both popular and hidden spots and was efficient and clear in telling me where to stand and what we were doing. The photos he showed me on his camera looked like they came out really well. I’d definitely recommend this experience and So, especially if you’re traveling alone. What a lovely memento to have. Thanks So!

This was an incredible experience that my friends and I enjoyed. The photography was fun and thrilling amongst the hustle and bustle of the city. So has lived in Tokyo all his life and has great recommendations and knowledge about the area. We got to see many locations we had on our bucket list. He was very friendly and kind, fluent in English and happy to teach us some Japanese phrases. If we ever come back to Tokyo we will be sure to visit So, as we feel we have made a friend for life. We highly recommend this experience to everyone travelling to Tokyo!!

Great experience! I highly recommend it, I’m not the best with pictures but he made me feel comfortable enough to be myself, he seemed to know the area pretty well, told me a little bit about himself and was very friendly throughout the photoshoot. Totally worth it! :)
