EYExplore Tokyo Photo Tour & Workshop - EYExplore trainer in action while coaching

What’s the Story?

Peering up in awe at monolithic steel and glass towers, one can’t help but feel small. Capture that feeling in your photographs, juxtaposing tiny human forms against cold and sterile structures. Contrast the artificial and man-made with the organic—hints of nature and human life surrounded by the Tokyo metropolis.

What We’ll Shoot

We will learn how to create compelling images of architectural elements and the people that populate the city’s concrete environs. You’ll be coached on using composition concepts like leading lines, negative space, and juxtaposition. We’ll practice using these techniques to convey a variety of narratives.

Where We’ll Explore

Our journey will begin in Shiodome—a district walled in with glass and steel skyscrapers. From here we will head to Ginza, famed for its broad avenues lined with intricate examples of avant-garde architecture. Afterward, we will end up in Yurakucho where we will explore the innards of the monolithic Tokyo International Forum.

    I went on two different EYExplore Tokyo tours and they were really fun. I learned a lot from both guides and it was great to meet and explore with other photo enthusiast. My photography has definitely improved as a result. Well worth the price and it was the perfect way to spend a couple of nights in Tokyo.

    Thanks to our guide for the interesting time at the gardens! I need more exercise to comprehend negative space! But the tour was interesting and the walk through the gardens and city was great!
