          Professional, Accommodating and High Quality photoshoot
          TK was very professional, accommodating and quick in response. The photoshoot session was very comfortable and fun for our young kids. TK knew the areas to get best shot and our photos turned out great. Thanks for the beautiful experience and memories!

          Shirakawa-go and Takayama tour and photoshoot
          This was a very efficient trip to see Shirakawa-go and Takayama in a short time and also get nice photos. TK was knowledgeable about the towns and had adequate time to see all the main sights. He also helped us with poses and we were very pleased with how the photos turned out.

          A great day out with beautiful photo memories
          TK was an excellent guide and photographer. He picked us up right at our hotel, helped situate us with lunch after reviewing some options, and even had other helpful information for us during our stay in Kanazawa (like the fact that there was a local festival and parade happening the next day.) We were happy with all of the locations we saw and TK put together a great photo package for us to have memories of our day. We're happy with the photos he's shared and would happily go on another excursion with him again.

          SPENT A GREAT DAY WITH TK!
          We spent a great day with TK touring Hida Furukawa, Shirakawago, and Gokayama. He was friendly, informative and easy to talk to. We didn't hire him specifically for the photos, but that ended up being a fun part of the experience, and the photos came out great! We were also able to have him pick us up in Takayama and drop us off, with our luggage, in Kanazawa, which made that transfer fun easy and enjoyable. Highly recommended!

          Best photographer in Kanazawa. TK the artist
          TK an amazing photographer in Kanazawa who gave us the best day of sightseeing and terrific photos to share. We had an amazing day with TK our professional photographer who not only gave us an awesome day around Kanazawa but took some memorable photos of us to celebrate our time in this great city. TK picked us up in a very comfortable vehicle and we started the day at Higashi Chaya district before it got too busy and we got some get photos. This was followed by a trip to Nagamichi Samurai residence area. We got some terrific photos in this area and we had the opportunity to see the Samurai house and museum. TK took us to look at Omicho market which is a seafood lover’s dream. We then went to have coffee in one of the oldest cafe spots next to the Omicho market which again was lovely. TK was such a professional and knowledgeable guide and he made our day just perfect with some great photos. We finished the day at the beautiful Kenrokuen gardens and Kanazawa castle. A full day with TK is worth every dollar as he really knows his art and made us feel comfortable with his directions making the end result the perfect day out with the most professional photographer. Thank you TK it was an amazing day out and we appreciated your time and very happy with the photos you sent us.

          Honeymoon photoshot
          A great experience with a good guide and even better photographer. We made a trip from Spain to Japan as a honeymoon and we decided to make a photo session in the old part of Kanazawa. He recomended us a store to rent a couple of kimonos and make the photos with them. It was one of our best experiences during our trip.

          I did a solo trip and was looking for a tour guide. TK did a great job showing me around Kanazawa and took amazing photos! Much better than your average photo taken by a tourist. He also gave great tips on food to try and night spots for photography. Thank you again!

          Surprise Proposal Photography Session from Idea to Execution
          My experience with TK Photography was stellar. TK helped me plan and execute a surprise proposal. He captured the moment beautifully, helped me determine time and place, and was ultimately flexible on the day of the proposal. I had to move the time by 1 hour and he adapted to the moving situation. The photoshoot directly following the proposal was a joy and we left the interaction glowing for the rest of the day.

        Want to have a photoshoot of your own? Feel fabulous and model-like while touring, eating, and shopping? Then book this photography tour with TK!

        If you want amazing photos in awesome Shirakawa-go and Kanazawa, then you have to book with TK Photography. You’ll bring home great memories of these beautiful historic places and have awesome photos (of you!) to show around.

        Had my solo trip for 3 days and booked TK Photography for 2 days. I am not a model and got conscious about the shoot but TK made it fun and comfortable for me.

        I learned that people and event photography has been TK’s career and he specialises in engagements and weddings. Being a professional photographer, I guess you could make the trip as friendly or as professional as you want.

        With all the little stories we shared along the ride, it was like meeting an old friend who was happy to show me around his hometown. And a friend who happens to love taking your photo!

        The whole process of booking was painless with good communication from TK by email before the actual day. TK picked us up from our hotel as arranged and his excellent English communication made this a stress free experience as we could have a nice conversation. His knowledge of Shirakawago helped us get some nice photos before the snowfall really set in and made viewing difficult. His photos were beautiful and we highly recommend TK to anyone considering a private tour to the locations on his itinerary.

        Thoroughly enjoyed our trip with TK. He picked us up from our hotel on time in his comfortable people mover, answered all the questions and requests our wives threw at him, and took beautiful professional photos for our families.

        The entire experience from booking to finish was simple and efficient and TK communicated in excellent English so made things a lot easier than booking thru other tours.

        TK was so flexible with our schedule and accommodating with our requests. I’d be happy to recommend TK.

        We had arranged for TK to accompany us from Kanazawa to Takayama and Shirakawa-go to mark our twentieth wedding anniversary; we couldn’t think of a better way to capture the special moment, now as a family. And we were not disappointed.

        TK was responsive from the start when we contacted him, punctual during the actual day and was patient the entire journey. TK was a careful driver (which was important given the long journey) and a great photographer who was not able to capture candid moments but also knew of the scenic vantage points to take the pictures. We were happy with the pictures.

        My husband and I recently were at Shirikawago, Tocoyama and Kanazawa Japan

        We were looking for a local photogrpher to take some picture from us; Our photographer was TK and he did such a great job.

        All the photos came out really fantastic in a very short time.

        We will recommend TK if you want to capture your best moments in a shot while you and your loved one just need to "worry" about enjoyong the view!!!

        I could not recommend Tk’s photography tour more! He offers a unique way to see Shirakawago and his professionalism is unmatched. You can tell that he’s very skilled in his craft, the photos exceeded our expectations. His knowledge of the region and recommendations were impressive. His communication was effective and made everything easy. You must go on this tour if in the area!

        TK is awesome. He was on time, speaks perfect English, and has a very cool vibe. The two villages we visited were impressively built and beautiful to walk among. The photographs we received had great composition and will be used to remember this Japan trip forever. TK also recommended one of the best meals of our trip, which was soba along a green river landscape. I would recommend.

        I did a solo trip to Shirakawa-go and booked a tour with TK Photography. It was a great experience! TK was timely in responding to messages regarding the tour and pickup time and location. His car was clean and comfortable. He was knowledgeable about the history of the village and he knows the best places to take photos. I was so impressed with the photos he took! I have taken professional photos before and I can honestly say these are some of the best one's anyone has ever taken! If you are a solo traveler, I highly recommend booking this tour! It alleviates any stress or anxiety of asking a stranger to take a mediocre picture of you to commemorate your trip. I was able to relax and enjoy the day and I have amazing photos to remember the trip! Thank you TK!

        We availed of TK's Shirakawago and Gokayama's full day tour. He picked us up from our hotel, did the tour and dropped us off again at our hotel. TK was very professional and knowledgeable of the places we visited. He was also very fluent in English so communicating was easy and our day just felt like spending a day with a friend. We wanted to do a photoshoot as we felt like every time we travelled as a couple, we did not have enough photos where we were in the shot together. It's usually a solo shot of each other or just selfies but did not really capture the place we visited. With TK with us, all our photos turned out so well! This was really worth the spend for us, and we have our photos to last us a lifetime. Thank you so much TK!

        TK is great photographer. The composition in the photos is amazing. Even we were in the rainy day, the pictures with the umbrella are still very beautiful. We could say that the pictures looks like from the magazine cover and we definitely put some of them in the wall.
