Japan Winter Itinerary

Days 1 & 2 — Tokyo The trip commences in Tokyo and takes in the bustling street life of Japan's very own megalopolis. At this time of year its possible to capture “Diamond Fuji” with the Tokyo skyline that shows the incredible expanse of this modern city. We will also visit some of the picturesque traditional areas and temples at times which suit our goals to shoot without the crowds.

Day 3 — Mt Fuji A drive to Mt Fuji and the surrounding 5 lakes offer a variety of beautiful lakes and landscapes all under the background of the majestic Fuji-san.

Day 4 — Takayama We will then head north to Matsomoto where the “Black Castle” resides in the centre of town. With its surrounds covered in snow, its a great opportunity to see one of the best preserved castles in all of Japan.

Days 5 & 6 — Jigokudani A day with the snow monkeys up in the hills of Jigokudani is something you won’t see anywhere else in the world. Photographing the snow monkeys in their natural winter routine of keeping warm while sitting in hot springs in the snow is something unforgettable. We will then fly to the northern island of Hokkaido.

Days 7 & 8 — Sapporo + Biei The largest snow festival in Japan lights up in Sapporo at night, we then head out into the winter wilderness of the Biei area and its snow covered landscapes.

Days 9 & 10 — Otaru The Otaru Snow Path festival is a held in a beautiful small fishing village which lights the canal and decorates areas around the village with ice installations. It really is a very picturesque and a beautiful time to be in Japan with a camera! ​

We then conclude our tour with a flight returning us from Sapporo to Tokyo on the last day. ​

The 11 day tour coverages a wide spectrum of photography and will be an unforgettable cultural experience. The trip will allow enough opportunities to capture key moments and also cover editing techniques and processes to help you get the most value out of the trip.
