Travel Photography to capture your adventures in Kyoto

A unique appeal

A unique appeal

What makes Kyoto so special? Maybe it is the imperial aura that surrounds the city. Or perhaps it is the richness of its culture and history. Most likely, the secret for its appeal is the way Kyoto combines beautiful scenery, ancient buildings, Zen gardens and amazing traditional cuisine. And, of course, gracious geisha that can be spotted in some parts of the city!

If you are fascinated about Japanese and Asian culture, then Kyoto has to be in your travel plans.

Did you know that the city is also beloved by photographers around the world? There are plenty of reasons for that. From the cherry blossom season to the iconic Fushimi Inari Torii Gates, it seems that at every corner there is something to catch the eye.

To help you plan your time in Kyoto, we have rounded-up the top 3 amazing places you can visit in your trip - with your travel photographer by your side!

1. Arashiyama Bamboo Forest

Bamboo stalks rise into the sky, surrounding you in their green glory. The forest is like a portal to another world, with its unique aura and peaceful feel.

2. Countless temples

Kyoto has some of the most beautiful shrines and temples in Japan. Kinkakuji, established in 1397, still dazzles visitors with its golden color. Kiyomizu-dera is the bright orange Buddhist temple that receives the most amount of tourists in the city. Eikan-do, with its pond and garden, is the perfect spot for a delightful afternoon. There are still many other for you to explore in Kyoto!

3. Fushimi Inari Taisha

This Shinto shrine has over 5000 thousands torii gates lining the mountain trails. The hike is filled with photo-worthy spots, specially as the sun sets with its beautiful golden light reflecting on the vermillion-coloured torii gates.

Make sure these 3 attractions are in your travel plans to Kyoto and you will have an amazing time! Remember to take advantage of all its natural beauty and capture your unique memories, making them last forever.
