Overview
Learn to take photos of Tokyo at night on a 2.5-hour photo tour. Capture colorful billboards and lights in Shinjuku and Shibuya after dark. Follow in the footsteps of artists and filmmakers like Ridley Scott who have been inspired by the city lights.
What to Expect
Start the tour after sunset when the neon lights illuminate the city. Meet the photographer at Shinjuku station and get acquainted with the necessary photography techniques for this tour.

You will be shown the best vantage points in the busiest area in Tokyo: Shinjuku. The station itself boasts a traffic of more than 1 million passengers a day! Set your tripod at the whizzing traffic and capture the vibrant colors of light trails. Use leading lines to create dynamic images. Learn how to best shoot urban landscape at night to create depth in your photos.

This tour is not just about cars and traffic. You will also learn how blurring crowds can be effective when the backdrop is memorable. After a short train ride to Shibuya, we will take you to parts of the station unknown to many but highly photogenic. By then you will be able to handle the camera settings without problem. You will let your imagination run free and test different angles and composition creating your own memories of Tokyo. Of course you will go to the famous crossing but make sure you photograph it like you would have never thought.

You will need a tripod for this tour. You will spend 30% of your time shooting handheld and 70% on tripod. If you prefer more handheld photography nighttime as well as daytime check out the Tokyo Metropolis tour.
