YOUR HOST

Yoshio MATSUDA

I take all kinds of photographs from portraits to nature to night scenes and more! Out of all of these genres, however, my specialty is urban night photography; I love the sparkle of the city lights in the evening. I would like to capture this beautiful scene and help others realize its charm. That’s why I decided to start up a regular night shooting course. Through my passion for night shooting, I’ve had the honour of seeing my photos featured in various magazines and even on Tokyo Skytree’s Grand Opening commemorative goods in March 2012.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The Tokyo skyline is one-of-a-kind, and when night falls upon the largest metropolis in the world, the city lights up in a luminescent neon glow. One place in Tokyo is particularly well known for its colourful light show every night, Rainbow Bridge. As its name suggests, Rainbow Bridge shines in a multitude of colors. The bridge crosses Tokyo Bay, connecting the city proper to the Odaiba waterfront development, which provides a wonderful place to take photos of the city. Join host Yoshio Matsuda, master of night photography, at Shibaura-futo Station to begin your night shooting experience on a two-kilometer course. The tour can accommodate as few as two to as many as ten people and lasts around two hours. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn night shooting tips and take home beautiful photographs. Moreover, it’s a gift that keeps on giving, as you will be able to utilize what you learn here on future trips!
