Last year I started offering photography excursion to travelers who want to get the best out of their trip in Nikko. During the one-day "photo tour" I bring my customers to different areas where they can shoot beautiful images that suit their interest, plus they get to see a lot more places than any regular travelers who visit Nikko on a one day trip. Win/Win!!!
Two weeks ago, I had a client from Australia who was lucky enough to book his excursion during the Setsubun Festival, a very friendly Japanese event, where the Demon gets hunted, and "o-kashi" gets thrown at the participants.
We had a blast shooting the small Festival, and he felt fortunate to be in Nikko on that day. When you travel, do you plan your trip according to a special event and festival?
