This 10-day adventure will take you deep into the heart of this fascinating country, revealing its hidden gems and offering countless opportunities to capture its essence on canvas.

Imagine wandering through the enchanting cherry blossom gardens of Kyoto, the delicate petals cascading like confetti.

Feel the energy of Tokyo’s vibrant neighborhoods as you capture the bustling cityscape, a symphony of lights and movement.

In the sacred temples of Nara, find solace amid ancient pagodas and the gentle presence of roaming deer.

Paint the challenging angles of red temples against the backdrop of snow-capped Mount Fuji, or the classic streets of a Japanese movie set.

These are just a glimpse of the countless breathtaking scenes that await your artistic touch.
