I was late to discover Japan — I only went there for the first time in 2018. But I quickly fell in love — first with Tokyo, then with Kyoto — and now it is one of my favorite places to travel. Street photography in Japan offers endless opportunities. The urban hustle of Tokyo, the old world charm of Kyoto and beautiful people wearing wonderfully vibrant clothing of all styles. It isn’t unusual to spot on the same street teenagers in harajuki fashion, older men and women in traditional Japanese kimono, and immaculently dressed people in beautiful, stylish, modern clothing. Many women carry umbrellas to protect their skin – which makes for interesting street photos. Here are some of my favorites among the thousands of pictures I’ve taken in Japan.
