    What to Expect
    Experience the fascinating nighttime environment of Tokyo during a 2.5-hour, small-group photo adventure with a professional guide. The visual buffet that is Tokyo comes to life when the sun sets, offering photographers a fantastic opportunity to practice their composition and long exposure technique. A professional photographer will guide you and teach you the necessary camera settings and skills along the way.

    You will begin in the Shinjuku district, a bustling evening district that surrounds Japan’s busiest railway station. Admire some of Tokyo’s neon lights as your guide offers photo tips and insider knowledge about the area. Set up your tripod for long-exposure shots of the urban traffic, capturing the light trails of passing cars.

    After getting your fill of colorful Shinjuku’s traffic and back alleys, you will journey by train to the nearby Shibuya (at your own expense). Train your camera lens on the crowds of people that flock to this Tokyo district of nightlife and youth culture, admiring the glowing signage of the area’s many entertainment, drinking, and dining venues.

    Finish your photo trip at the famous Shibuya Crossing, memorialized in the 2003 film "Lost in Translation," as you watch thousands of Japanese people pass though the busy intersection. Head on to the Shibuya station, your camera full of plenty of great images to share with family and friends back home.

    This tour took us around the busy and well-lit areas of Shinjuku and Shibuya practising different types of night shot. We took some of light trails, 'ghost'-people; learned how to pan, zoom-blur and various other night techniques. The only thing letting this down was my
