In late November Japan explodes into a dazzling array of colour as autumn hits its peak. The Japan Autumn Workshop is timed to sees the flora at its fiery peak; the countryside awash in a sea of reds, oranges and yellows. This ten day intensive workshop encapsulates the most exceptional landscapes, temples, shrines, waterfalls and lakes that Japan has to offer, and there will even be some deer too! 

Lead by landscape award-winning photographer Andy Yee, and accompanied by Sony Artisan Colby Brown, this tour will push your photography to the next level. The intimate group size is designed for personal attention to develop your photographic vision. This tour will be high demand so reserve your spot as soon as possible!


Day 1-2: Tokyo

The megatropolis Tokyo is our starting point for this colourful workshop. From the neon-lit streets of Shinjuku, and the impressive skyline of this futuristic city, to the quiet and spiritual lantern covered alleys of the old Asakusa district, Tokyo is a contradictory city full of wonder. 

Day 3-4: Fuji Five Lakes

No trip to Japan in Autumn would be complete without a photograph of the iconic Mt Fuji. The Fuji Five-Lakes district is breathtaking at this time of the year as autumn brings a vibrancy that exemplifies the natural beauty of the lakes and vistas in the region. We will take out time to explore a wide array of shooting locations, so you will be sure to capture the shy mountain in its best light.

Day 5: Coastal Kansai

Nachi falls is a spectacular complement to Seiganto temple - Temple of the Blue Waves. Along the coast of Wakayama and Mie prefectures lie some of the most unique rock formations found in all Japan. Home to the jagged Hashigui-iwa Rocks and the adorable Wedded Rocks.

Day 6: Mount Yoshino + Nara

Our first destination outside of Kyoto will be Nara; home to hundreds of wild deer and tightly packed with historical building such as the Todai-ji, the largest wooden building in the world. The area boasts its beautiful mountain scenery, which will be perfect in Autumn. We will spend the night at Mount Yoshino which is nestled between hills bursting with vibrant colours in every direction. We will share a room in a Ryokan, a traditional Japanese Inn and relax in an onsen, hot spring bath, after dinner.

Day 7-9: Kyoto

We conclude our adventure in Kyoto: the cultural heart of Japan. Steeped in history, Kyoto has some of the most colourful temples and shrines found anywhere in the world. Our time will be wisely spent in the right locations at the right time. Early morning in the serene bamboo forest, late afternoon along the path of a thousand Torii Gates as the shadows grow long, evenings at illuminated temples such as Kiyomizu-dera. If we are lucky, we might even hear the shuffling of Geisha as they hurry from tea-house to tea-house in the twilight of Gion. The workshop will conclude after breakfast on Day 10.
