I tell you, I couldn’t have asked for a wiser and more charming senior couple to travel away from Tokyo for a family shoot. I mean, the photo below shows the amount of fun they had during the photo shoot.
Because I love photographing families, it is my call and duty to help you preserve the moments you allow me to capture. I often create my own story about what I see in front of my camera, describing visually every family member through my photography.
Vacation Family Portrait Photographer
Traveling to Kitaguchi-hongu Fuji Sengen-Jinja Shrine, makes it the farthest place I had a shoot as a family portrait photographer based in Tokyo. From their entire family’s vacation in Japan, this is where they had the most fun, according to their reaction on the way back to the hotel. Could it be because of me? 😎
They enjoyed the location of the Kitaguchi-hongu Fuji Sengen Shrine and had a lot of fun being in front of the camera during the photo shoot. Being surrounded by century-old trees, this place is a serene location for everyone to visit, including large families with children, who will have a lot of space to run and discover.
The head of the family, was especially impressed with the trees, where he specially asked me to take a portrait of him to show the remarkable size difference.
Few words about Kitaguchi-hongu Fuji Sengen Shrine
As a family portrait photographer, I will always recommend a photoshoot at this shrine for those whose vacation in Japan is long enough to accommodate one day trip outside of Tokyo. According to different sources, this shrine has a history of 1900 years. Probably this statement alone should convince anyone to visit it.
The tall ancient cedar trees cover this heavenly place keeping it under cooler temperatures during the hot Japanese summer. Together with the stone lanterns, they make a fantastic path to the big torii gate before entering the shrine.
According to Tripadvisor, it’s the number #3 of things to do in Fujiyoshida. This statement alone should say a lot about the importance of the place when it comes to sacred and religious sites in Japan, from a visitor’s perspective.
Because this shrine seems to be not so crowded(when I was there were only a few people), this place is a dream for any family portrait photographer: it offers the space and the fantastic Japanese look in all the photos.
