Photography in Japan has just been a treat. And on today’s vlog we went to my favourite part of Kyoto: Hokanji.
Check out my Japan Photography on IG at @brendanvanson.
Hokanji, in the old town of Kyoto, is one of the best photography locations in all of Japan. There are people wandering around dressed in kimonos which make for great street photos. There is even the occasional Geisha wandering about as well. But, from a travel perspective, there is a great line of Hokanji temple which makes for a beautiful composition.
Photography in Japan is a treat, but in the busy season it’s also really, well, busy. During the cherry blossoms there seem to be double the usual crowds, and that does make it a little bit of a challenge. But, it’s worth it. The photos of Japan that I’ve take so far have been among my favourites. It’s just been such an amazing country to get the camera out. And, this Hokanji area of Kyoto is one of my favourite spots.
Tomorrow, there’s another Japan vlog as we still have a couple days left in Kyoto.
