Japan Travel Photography: Shizuoka

I am lucky enough to have monthly assignments with a Tokyo based client that works closely with some of Japan’s biggest inbound tourism and travel companies. This means I often get the opportunity to travel the length and breadth of the country photographing a variety of things including local cuisines, local industries, historic sites and of course popular tourist destinations. In many ways this has been my dream job for a long, long time.

I am extremely grateful to have such interesting, fun and inspiring work assignments on a regular basis. On each and every trip I learn something new about the rich culture of my adopted home, the language and the deep history of the various areas that make up Japan. I also get to see some amazing places that I wouldn’t have the faintest idea about otherwise.

I have decided to start posting my top five favourite images from each of these assignments here on my website to show you what kind of work I am doing and also to hopefully inspire others to get out and explore this wonderful country.

This time my trip was to Shizuoka prefecture, one of two prefectures that proudly calls itself home to Japan’s greatest peak – Mt. Fuji. Needless to say, the images in this post are mostly of Fuji, from various angles and different areas, I’ve always been fond of photographing it after all! Other locations I photographed during this assignment included hotels, markets and tea farms. To see some of these other images don’t forget to follow my Instagram! Thanks!
