Photography in Japan

Simultaneously ancient and futuristic, there is simply nowhere on earth quite like Japan

Introduction

From the neon lights of Shibuya Crossing, to the serene views of Mount Fuji, Japan is both modern and exotic, and full of iconic sights. On this ten day trip we’ll experience the country’s futuristic side in the high- tech districts of Tokyo and it’s ancient traditions in historic Kyoto. We’ll witness the stunning natural beauty around Hakone, and throughout the journey we’ll sample Japan’s famous food and drink and experience its unique cultural quirks.
