What’s the Story?
Osaka is a burgeoning city rivaling Tokyo in sheer scope and urban grit. Despite being often compared to its larger counterpart, Osaka offers an old-school vibe that harks back to the golden age of modern Japan: the Shōwa era (also known as the bubble era). The city is chock-full of relics of a time gone by. Join us on an adventure into nostalgia on the neon-lit streets of Osaka.
What We’ll Shoot
We’ll photograph a range of subjects, from people to gritty street, to traffic streaming through the busy centers of Osaka, such as Umeda and Namba. In the day time we can concentrate on the architecture and old-style markets, while in the evening we recommend the neon-filled districts of Namba or Kitashinchi. Whatever your interest, we’ll be sure to craft a unique experience for you.
Where We’ll Explore
Together we’ll explore the retro-districts of Osaka such as Shinsekai with its narrow lanes filled with arcades and old-timers playing shogi. We can delve deeper into the old-school by visiting Tsuruhashi and getting lost in its maze of covered shopping streets and cluttered markets. It’s also hard to miss Umeda and Kitashinchi with the neon-glitz of old. Of course, we’ll be happy to customize the route to make the photo adventure exactly what you are looking for!
