What’s the Story?

Kyoto is known for it’s serene temples and cultural and religious heritage. But it is also a hive of selfie-stick-wielding tourists trucked in by the busload. Comes with us, escape the masses, and find tranquility in the hidden Zen temples of Kyoto. We’ll show you the quaint and quiet sub-temples around the Nanzenji complex where we can practice photographic mindfulness and attain a state of Zen.

What We’ll Shoot

Learn how to work with various lighting conditions in the confines of Kyoto’s serene zen gardens and temples. We will explore creative and effective composition concepts for capturing the beauty of each location and enable you to create your own impressive photographs. Take these skills with you on the rest of your journey throughout Japan!

Where We’ll Explore

We avoid the famous locations cluttered with selfie sticks and throngs of tourist, and instead we take you to some of the lesser-known sub-temples around Nanzenji. There, unhindered by the crowds, we can appreciate the aesthetics of rock gardens and Buddhist temples. You’ll be struck by the sense of intimacy of a real zen experience.

We meet outside of the entrance gate called "ChuMon" of the Nanzen-ji complex (not the temple itself). You will see a car parking lot just next to the gate.
