A CREATIVE IMAGE-MAKING PHOTOGRAPHY TOUR 
Just 4-6
with Robert van Koesveld and Daisuke Kondo

organised by Spark Photography

A photography tour to Japan that offers so many diverse experiences – peaceful ancient forests and tiny gardens; beautiful snow-capped mountains and island beaches; intriguing traditional culture and vibrant modern cities.

We invite you to connect with the people, culture and landscape in focused and interesting ways, paced for thoughtful photographers, so that you can create images that reflect your experiences at a greater depth.

With a small group led by two professional photographers, this is a great opportunity to follow your creative ambitions while (further) exploring this fascinating country.

Autumn in Japan is an enticing time to make images as this diverse country moves colourfully from summer green to winter white. We invite you to join a small group on a special photo tour to explore the stunning coastal landscapes of old Japan’s Noto Peninsula, the surprising modern and traditional cityscapes of Tokyo, a famous exquisite ancient garden, and the intimate beauty of Kyoto’s serene cultural treasures.

This photo tour is carefully paced for thoughtful photographers, giving you maximum time to connect with the people, culture and landscape in focused and interesting ways, so that you can create images that reflect your experiences at a greater depth. Led by two professional photographers, who know Japan well and are generous coaches, this is a great opportunity to follow your creative ambitions while exploring this fascinating country.

Photographers Robert van Koesveld and Daisuke Kondo invite you join them for a journey through the unique Winter landscapes of Hokkaido in northern Japan. With a small photography tour size, you will be inspired to create images that reflect the poetic beauty of farmlands, mountains and hills under snow.

Moving to the coast we will marvel at the sea ice and sculptural shore protection. Visiting inland lakes, we look for elegant environmental images of the famous red-crowned Japanese cranes and whooper swans. Your creativity will be well supported by coaching, teaching and conversation.

15 day Winter Wonders of Japan Photo Tour

organised by Adam Monk

Join Adam Monk and Robert van Koesveld for 14 days of photo tour adventures in the rich diversity of Japan.  From the bustling downtown streets of Tokyo, to the beauty of Japan’s natural wonder, and the serenity of the Kyoto temple gardens in Autumn, Japan is a wonderful mix of modern and historic places, stunning landscapes, culture and culinary delights.

Michael Yamashita and Jock Montgomery lead a winter photography tour to Hokkaido, Japan's frontier, a snow-covered, volcanically active island, rich with natural habitats.

Join Adam Monk and Robert van Koesveld for 15 days of photo tour adventures in the rich diversity of Japan in Winter.  We are spending 7 full days in the winter wonderland of Hokkaido, and we will be exploring much further afield to include the iconic Whooper Swans and Red Crowned Japanese Cranes.  Then onto the famous snow monkeys of Shibu Onsen.  We will contrast the snow-draped landscapes in Hokkaido with the complex beauty of Kyoto temple gardens in Winter, an intimate Tea Ceremony with a genuine Japanese Tea Master and an interlude with the real Maiko Geiko culture of Gion district. Japan is a marvellous mix of modern and historic places, stunning landscapes, culture and culinary delights.
