Capturing winter in Japan

Capturing winter
in Japan

from 3999

Tour - 12 days - French speaking guided tour

Come Discover and photograph Japan in a very small group (max. 10 people), in the company of Nicolas Wauters, our Belgian guide who lives there. In addition to the must-see Tokyo and Kyoto, you will visit more original regions such as the japanese alps (Takayama - Shirakawago - Kanazawa) or Koya San. An unforgettable road trip!

Through this 12-day tour, we will discover a multifaceted Japan, ranging from the small temple hidden between the buildings of Tokyo, to the japanese alps or also joining monks praying at the top of Mount Koya.

For many travelers, the best season to discover Japan is spring with the hatching of its cherry blossoms or Sakura. However, the colors of winter still offer better hues and give Japanese places and temples a unique atmosphere over a period of several weeks. It is a country made of beauties and colors that we would like to share with you during this winter workshop

Your guides

Nicolas Wauters

My name is Nicolas and I would be proud to be your guide during these 12 days through Japan. Now based in Tokyo, I left my country in 2013 to come and live my dream in Japan. As soon as I arrived, I created my guiding company and for more than 8 years, I had the chance to guide several thousand travelers and photograph Japan and its most beautiful landscapes. Photography and guiding are more than jobs for me, they are two real passions that drive me.

I want to share with you all my knowledge of the country and photography, so more than just a Workshop, it will be a travel experience with people who have the same interests.

Nicolas Doretti

I am a photographer and videographer based in Lyon, I would be very happy to accompany you during this workshop-photography in Japan. I share my passion for photography on my YouTube channel "Nico DT", and I would like to do the same during this trip; directly transmit my knowledge of landscape, street photography, portrait or post-processing.

Besides the experience of an incredible country, my goal is for you to leave with your mind and camera filled with incredible images. In addition to the knowledge acquired, your portfolio will no longer be the same!
