Excellent job good with kids
, Dec 2020
Kai did and excellent job (beyond expectations) with our photography shoot in Kyoto. He is very talented and relaxed with the kids and makes good conversation. He know just where to go for the perfect shot. We covered a lot of ground and got a wide variety of photos. Can’t recommend him enough!!!!!
High Quality Images and a Real History Tour!
, Dec 2020
I had so much fun doing this photo tour with Kai, he was very knowledgeable about Kyoto and the history of it as well as of Japan. He's got great eyes, I am very happy with the images he delivered. He is also quite friendly so I was very relaxed while being taken pictures. You get to receive pictures from a professional photographer who is a real local in the city!
If you want to shoot in Kyoto, I highly recommend Kai the Photographer!!!

My boyfriend and I recently had our pre-wedding photos taken in Kyoto.Kai, the photographer, was very friendly and kind. We were a little nervous for our first shoot, but thanks to Kai, we quickly got used to it and had a great time by the end!I wanted him to take pictures of me again next time at another location!!Another new memory in my favorite city, Kyoto, and I love it even more!Thanks for finding a great photographer!!!
Excellent photoshoot experience

It was very nice experience shooting with Kai. He easily explains what to do to get the perfect photo. Definitely recommend this experience.
Great Experience!!
, Mar 2020
Best experience!! Beautiful photos. Kai easy to work with, he also gave a good background of the various venues. We had a expensive wedding photographer at our wedding 2 yers ago, and she did take great pictures but Kai's photo's are on same level. Highly recommend!!
Amazing experience!

Kai was an awesome photographer! He was very friendly and nice. It was great chatting with him and getting to learn more about Kyoto. The photos also turned out great!
AMAZING photographer in Kai
, Aug 2019
Kai was our photographer and took the most beautiful photos of a friend and I. Words can't express our gratitude in having the most awesome guide and photographer who was patient and kind. We purchased Yukatas and were traditionally dressed for this which made it that much more special.
