While you are visiting Japan or if you are planning to come to Japan, here are my top three places I would recommend you to take pictures.
1. Tokyo TowerTower Tower is a the most famous symbol of Japan. With it’s unique red color (red), which is also beautifully lit up during the night, taking pictures here will definitely make your friends back home want to come to Japan too.
Did you know that Naito Tachu, the person who designed this tower, is famously known for designing many towers that were Earthquake resistant.
2. Asakusa (Senso Ji temple)Asakusa is famously known for having the oldest temple in Tokyo, Senso-ji. I personally love this place because there is a wonderful blend of the historic and modern Japan in one place! The best time to go there to take shots is at Golden Hour. Golden Hour is the time when the sun is just about to set. This gives the surrounding a warm and cinematic vibe to the pictures that you take.
3. KabukichoMy last recommendation would be Kabukicho located in Shinjuku.
I highly recommend this place because this is the number once place to visit if you want see the best display of neon lights and night life in Tokyo. Day shots are also really nice especially if you go there at Golden Hour because the reflection of the sun hits the glass panels of the Don Quixote building, giving a cool reflection of the sun.
I have lived in Japan for more than 8 years and to be honest, there are many places I have visited and recommend to the new customers coming to Sakura House. From time to time, I get together with the residents at our regular events and take memorable pictures for them so that they have a precious photo of their time in Japan to remind them of Japan when the go back to their country.
