Tokyo, Japan | 30 Aug – 3 Sept 2018

About Tokyo:
Street Photography Masterclass in Tokyo is a photographer’s heaven and here are the reasons. Tokyo, the capital of Japan, with over 13 million people in the official metropolitan area alone. Tokyo is the core of the most populated urban area in the world, the metropolis itself has a population of over 37 million people. This huge, wealthy and fascinating metropolis brings high-tech visions of the future side by side with glimpses of old Japan and has something for everyone.

Some of the places where the workshop will take place are; Shibuya Crossing, the rumored to be the busiest intersection in the world, it’s like a giant beating heart, sending people in all directions with every pulsing light change. Perhaps nowhere else says ‘Welcome to Tokyo’ better than this. Hundreds of people – and at peak times said to be over 1000 people – cross at a time, coming from all directions at once yet still managing to dodge each other with a practiced, nonchalant agility. Another will be the Tokyo’s old-school alleyways or yokocho. These are treasure troves for anyone looking to experience the city’s less sterile and more down-to-earth side. where they host thousands of tiny eateries and pubs, some of them dating way back to the early postwar years, and provide opportunities for slipping back in time to the smoky, change-filled decades of the Showa era.
