Japan Photo Tour

Japan Photo Tour 2017… no, 2018

Update: This tour has been postponed to 2018 due to us trying to do too much!  Please bear with us, we will get there.

Japan Photo Tour Meiko of KyotoI will be visiting Japan in November 2016, for a few weeks of scouting and tasting for a Photo tour of Japan I’ve been talking about with acclaimed Perth Photographer Robert van Koesveld for nearly a year now.  I have been fascinated with Japan since I was very young, and Robert has been to Japan many times, running photography tours and recently publishing an award winning book on the Kyoto Meiko and Geiko (Geishas) culture.  The Japan Photo tour we are planning for 2017 will begin in November for the Autumn colours in Kyoto and Central Honshu, and then North for the first snow falls up in Hokkaido, for some minimalist monochromatic landscapes.

This tour will be a lovely balance of landscapes, urbanscapes, street photography, people and culture.  with lots of great Japanese food, music, dance and Saki thrown in.  I think its going to be a fantastic tour and I am very much looking forward to making it happen.
