    Dream Bridal Portraits Come to Life in Kyoto, Japan

    This Covid-19 season has probably got a lot of us binge watching TV serials, although many of us would have begun watching our favourites even before the movement restrictions. For this couple, all their TV viewing served a purpose – their bridal portraits were inspired by their favourite Japanese drama series. Fion and Steven shot their portraits in Kyoto, Japan, in the thick of autumn, and the photos are so lovely! Thank you for these, JIWA Photography. We love the way the weather and colours of Kyoto spark life, warmth and magical vibes in this precious album. The kimonos, antiquity of the town, and old-fashioned streets make Kyoto like nowhere…

    A Great Story In Romantic Kyoto

    A stroll through picturesque Gion Shirakawa in early winter, complete with glimpses of geishas on their way to work, is just priceless. We have to admit that we are in love with 37 Frames Photography’s portfolio, and consider it a pleasure to have had an exclusive interview with them for the magazine. Yohko and Vijay might call America home, but it’s not surprising that they would choose to have their bridal portraits taken in Kyoto, one of Japan’s most beautiful cities. Kyoto is already a city of great treasures, and this couple’s rich cultural heritage – Yohko is Japanese while Vijay is Indian – only enhances the beauty of it…

    Romantic Kyoto Honeymoon

    Kyoto is possibly one of the most romantic places in the world, filled with countless temples, gardens and castles, with so many picturesque places that it can be difficult to know where to go. Here is a short three-day itinerary for Kyoto, travelling from Tokyo by Hikari Shinkansen train. For transportation within Kyoto for this particular itinerary, a day pass isn’t recommended because getting to the places on the itinerary require different train and bus lines. Kyoto is very touristy. The bad thing about it is the food and souvenirs will be a bit pricey compared to Tokyo, but the great thing is it is actually really organised, well equipped…

    A Snowy Day In Kyoto

    Kyoto is a very beautiful place, well known for its pristine natural beauty, and you will see many couples, even from other parts of Japan, flocking here to take photos. The local lovebirds often put on their traditional costumes and stroll the streets, whispering and giggling to each other, and you’ll also see couples cycling together or being ferried around by rickshaw. Though it’s rather crowded during peak season, the overall vibe is still tranquil and peaceful. It’s definitely not hard to capture good photos here, but this snowy scene at Togetsukyo Bridge at Arashimaya, also known as “lovers’ bridge”, is totally the picture perfect moment. DIANA & KELVIN {Japan}…
