Underground Tokyo


Street Photography

What’s the Story?

On this street photography workshop, we distill the downtown of Tokyo into a neon dreamscape, capturing the visual essence of cyberpunk. The energy of the metropolis will invigorate your creativity as we explore these hallow streets that were the inspiration for films like Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell. Tokyo has become synonymous with the cyberpunk genre and gritty futurism, so take a deep dive with us into the neon night and we’ll show you why!

What We’ll Shoot

Street photography is about capturing candid decisive moments above all. We will seek out the moments of connection between people and their environment that make such moments magical. However, decisive moments are precious and fleeting, so in between we will also shoot urban streets scenes of smoky bars, gritty alleyways, neon-lit entertainment centers, and shady dives in the backstreets of the metropolis. You will receive plenty of instruction for how to get the most out of your camera in the challenging conditions of urban night street photography. But rest assured, creative compositions and shooting ideas will be our focus.

Where We’ll Explore

We begin our cyberpunk journey in Shinjuku, the heart of Metropolitan Tokyo. Here we will explore the smoke-filled bar district of Omoideyokocho, also known as Memory Lane. Next, we’ll spend the bulk of our time deep in Kabukicho, Tokyo’s most notorious red-light district. Over the decades, it has evolved into a mixed entertainment district for all, giving us a wide range of shooting opportunities in terms of scene and subject.

To cap off Shinjuku we will take a detour through Golden-gai, a network of narrow passages lined with intimate bars and drinkeries before heading on to Shibuya via the metro. Once there, we will hit up an iconic lamplit alleyway dubbed Nonbeiyokocho, also known as Drunkard’s Lane. Finally, we’ll cap of the evening with a stroll through the neon-soaked streets of Dogenzaka, another of Tokyo’s red-light districts, before finishing up in the famed Shibuya Crossing.
