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!

  1. Gargs_01

    This tour not only allows you to see Osaka through a different lens but allows to meet great people including your guide, Paul. He’s an experienced photographer that will share his knowledge and coach you into improving your photography. You will visit some out of the way locations not even locals will know. A highlight of my japan trip.

  2. TravelTogether2019

    We had a great experience with EYExplore in Tokyo and Osaka. We booked 4 different itineraries with 3 different photographers (Lukasz, Lee and Axel) and each one gave us an amazing experience. We not only saw areas of each city we would never have known about and got amazing photographs but we learned a lot about Japanese culture from each of our photographers. As photographers ourselves, we loved seeing these cities through the lens of local photographers who appreciated the beauty and artistry of the Japanese way of life as much as we did. we would highly recommend EYExplore for any trip to Japan … even if all you have is a cell phone. These guys can show you a Japan that no guidebook can.

    Did a Osaka photography session and had a great learning experience to take shots which i otherwise wouldn’t be able to (or willing) to try and take myself. Framing shots and location knowledge was very helpful. I like the results from my shots. Will come back again.
