"I do not know where I should go"even though you plan to shoot in Tokyo
If you decide to travel to Japan, there are many people who say "First of all, let's go to Tokyo!" It is indispensable to go to the most prosperous city if you go on a trip in Japan. Tokyo has various faces day and night, so it is the perfect city for shooting.
However, I do not know where I should go even though I plan to shoot in Tokyo. Do you have such a trouble? Talking about Tokyo, there are towns where young people like to go such as Shibuya and Harajuku , while there are towns where are full of old-fashioned feelings like Asakusa and Nezu. You can enjoy various atmospheres of charming Tokyo in a short distance. However, there are many different streets, so you do not know where to go.
So, our Tadory Photography, a professional photographer team in Japan, will introduce Tokyo's recommended shooting areas.
Tokyo's recommended shooting area: ① Asakusa area
As Tokyo's sightseeing spot, Asakusa after all. Asakusa as a sightseeing spot in Tokyo, is a famous place where many Japanese visit. Especially on weekends, because both Japanese and foreigners visit here, it will be the busiest street in Tokyo.
Despite all the charm, the streets that remain since ancient times.
There are many kimono renting shops, if you want to leave a special memorial photos in Japan, we recommend shooting with wearing kimono in Asakusa.
Recommended shooting area in Tokyo: ② Shibuya · Harajuku · Omotesando area
Shibuya is the street where young people gather in Tokyo. Maybe you have seen pictures of scrambled intersections or shooting scenery once.
And you can also go to the Harajuku / Omotesando area by walking a little from Shibuya. Harajuku / Omotesando, where is famous for many secondhand clothes stores, and thay are also the streets where leading the fashion in Tokyo.
The charm of Shibuya, Harajuku, Omotesando area is contemporary street photos. We recommend you shoot photos with wearing your cool clothes at Shibuya's scrambled intersection or Takeshita street in Harajuku.
Also, in Harajuku, there is the largest shrine in Tokyo called Meiji Shrine. How about shooting at Meiji Shrine, where surrounded by nature and the atmosphere is opposite to that of street photography?
Tokyo's recommended shooting area: ③ Tokyo · Ginza · Tsuji area
Unlike Harajuku and Omotesando, the Tokyo / Ginza area is a luxury brand streets where many adults with high age groups gather. It is the street where many people gather from young people who do window shopping to adults with a high age group who come to buy good goods. Tokyo Station, Ginza pedestrian heaven, Tokyo International Forum are famous shooting spots in here. Let's try shooting various poses!
You can also go to the Tsukiji area by walking a little from Ginza. Although the inside market of Tsukiji had relocated to Toyosu, the outside market for tourists is still bustling. It might be a good idea to enjoy an unusual atmosphere of Tsukiji in Tokyo.
Tokyo's recommended shooting area: ④ Yanaka, Nezu, Sendagi area
A slightly niche area in Tokyo is the Yanaka, Nezu and Sendagi areas. Commonly known as YANESEN, this area has a downtown atmosphere in Tokyo. There are many people who enjoy traditional shopping streets in Yanaka Ginza and stroll around Nezu shrine.
The recommended shooting spot is Nezu shrine. This is the only one shrine with thousand torii in Tokyo, you can make a excellent shooting in here. It is a perfect place for those who want to shooting in a similar atmosphere in Tokyo although they can't go to Kyoto.
Nezu can rent a kimono as well as Asakusa, So we really recommend that you shooting with wearing kimono.

Sorry for the late comment! We shot together with Yusuke in Kawagoe in September. Yusuke was a kind person, I bother to study Chinese and greeted me first in Chinese, I was really surprised. I thought that? Is not he different? (We taught Yusuke that we can not speak Chinese from interacting staff. lol) While shooting, Yusuke thought about the topic, and also thoughtful angle and content thoughtfully! I'm really thankful to you!

This time I shot to Mr. Koji. Koji is a kind person, you can speak simple Chinese, even in English! Shooting in one hour is a nice atmosphere and good photos remain even on a single trip. If I have the opportunity I would like to take another picture by Koji again!
Camera：Canon EOS 5D MarkⅣ
Tokyo was one of the honeymoon destinations. Thank you very much for Mr. Koji of Tadory Photography for making good memories in Tokyo since we last go 11 years. If I have the next opportunity I would like to wear kimonos in the season when cherry blossoms are in bloom, I will shoot!
