EYExplore Tokyo Photo Tour & Workshop - Photographers exploring Shibuya during Streets of Tokyo street photography workshop
Photographers exploring Shibuya during Streets of Tokyo street photography workshop

What’s the Story?

Follow the footsteps of famed streets photographers such as Tatsuo Suzuki or Daido Moriyama and shoot the wildlife of the Tokyo jungle. Vivid colors, funky fashion, and friendly street life await you in Harajuku and Shibuya, the center of youth culture in Tokyo.

What We’ll Shoot

Get out of your comfort zone and get close to the locals on this street photography workshop. Learn how to shoot in the chaos of Tokyo’s crowds and get confidence in approaching strangers and shooting candid photos in public. You’ll also be coached on various composition techniques that will enhance your photos, such as creatively utilizing reflections and contrasting light.

Where We’ll Explore

We will start in Harajuku and dive into the masses of people on Takeshita street. Seeking a respite from the chaos, we’ll explore a hidden shrine and garden, before heading back into the crowds of Omotesando. Finally, we will venture on to Shibuya and explore its back alleys and hidden districts such as Nonbeiyokocho (Drunkard’s Lane).

    As I was not sure how street and people photography in Tokyo would work, I booked a workshop with EYEexplore, and did not regret – all expectations were met/exceeded, Lukasz is a great guide plus a patient and competent teacher with a fantastic knowledge of photo locations. Great fun and great learnings! A clear recommendation.

    I was lucky enough to work with Stephane. We did the Street Photography tour as I had a beginners interest in shooting candid street shots. It was both an educational and fun experience – Stephane addressed all my needs. I wanted to focus on people and over-coming the fear of approaching strangers. He gave me both technical and practical tips. We moved quickly through several spots in Tokyo that were conducive to lots of interesting shots. Time flies quickly so be ready to move. One tip: go for an afternoon session to take advantage of sundown when you can get all sorts of nice shots. Def recommend! Another note: clear your memory card and bring back up batteries! Youll be shooting a lot so youll need them

    Me and my partner did the “Streets of Tokyo” tour in the begining of July. I have years of experience working with images and photographers, while my partner basically never held a camera before. The guide was excellent, both as a photographer and teaches at all levels. Also in the role as a tour leader. He made us enjoyed this tour as much both. I highly recommend this tour. You don’t need to not much about photography. It is a great and fun way to see and feel Tokyo. You also get Interesting pictures to show back home.

    Do you want to develop your photography skills, have fun and want guaranteed cool photo’s of Tokyo? I can recommend to book a workshop with Eyexplore. When I was in Tokyo I did the ‘Streets of Tokyo’ workshop with a friend. Lukasz showed us around, gave us advice and some tips and tricks so we were guaranteed to shoot some cool photo’s in Tokyo. It was a very practical workshop. I improved my photography skills and I will certainly use Lukasz tips in other cities as well.

    I had a great time exploring the small corners of Shibuya, capturing the unique moments I never would have found on my own. On top of that I picked up plenty of tips to better my photo game! Highly recommend!

    I took many photo tours with eyexplore, and will do it again, We saw parts of Japan that ate not the most common, The guides, in my case Lucazs, wats very king and yelp a lot with my camera settings, spevially at night, and sharon ideas. I really recomend this tour for begginers or advanced photographers.

    年末に友人3人と”東京ストリート”に参加しました。ストリートフォトには興味がありましたが、ワークショップに参加したのはこれが初めてです。私は東京生まれの日本人ですが、ストリートフォトのロケーションとしてファインダーを通して東京の街を見るのは実に新鮮な体験でした。10ヵ所以上のポイントで、場所の特徴を生かした実践的なテクニックを教えていただき、今まで自分では撮ったことのない様な素晴らしい写真を沢山持ち帰ることができました。ストリートフォトに興味がある方に是非お勧めします。

We meet at Harajuku JR Station at the Omotesando Exit in front of the 'Information Map' just outside the turnstiles on the sidewalk.
