Sacred Japan

Photocultural exploration into the rich and unique culture of Japan

Photographer Wayde Carroll, along with Kyoto native and professional tour guide, Miyu Tamamura, invite you into the magical land of Japan. Experts in their fields, with a rich background in the arts, Miyu and Wayde designed this trip especially for photographers who wish to capture the beauty of Japan while having a true cultural immersion experience.

Our home base will be Kyoto, a cultural mecca and home of Zen Buddhism. This ancient capital is more than 1,200 years old and exudes the essence of what makes Japan one of the most unique and sophisticated cultures in the world.

Kyoto is known not only for its natural beauty but also for the highest quality arts and crafts found in the nation. Kyoto houses over a thousand temples and shrines and their well-tended gardens invite us to pause and to experience the present moment. Please join us and experience Japan’s extraordinary beauty through your heart and through your lens.

This truly special offering will allow photographers to fully immerse themselves in a wide variety of photographic opportunities. With Miyu’s 20 years of extensive experience guiding tours in Japan, we’ll explore unique, lesser-known locales along with more famous must-see sights.
