Overview

Fantastically futuristic, but steeped in tradition; Tokyo is a neon-lit contradiction that flashes by in a blur. The Aperture Tours plunge head first into the craziest pedestrian crossing you've ever seen and continue into the back streets of Shibuya before giving you fantastic opportunities to perfect your street photography with the eclectic youth fashion of Harajuku.

Thought the night time photo tour with Giovanni was excellent. He is a lovely guy, speaks excellent English and Japanese, knows his photography and knows good locations to access. I am really pleased with my shots from this tour. Frances

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
