Perfect locations for your shoot in Tokyo

Tokyo is a treasure chest full of the unique, the modern, and the beautiful.
You have so many choices for locations, it’s hard to choose just one! But be careful—we recommend 1 location per hour of shooting in order to get the best shots with each scenery. Many couples tend to focus on famous, well-known Tokyo destinations: Tokyo Tower, Shibuya Crossing, and Meiji Shrine (just to name a few). If you’re looking to have a truly “Tokyo” experience, these are perfect locations for your shoot. Check out some Tokyo pictures below!
