What is the best time for photoshoot?

Depending on the season, the sun rises and sets at different timings in different parts of Japan. For example, in Hokkaido, during summer, the sun rises at around 4am and sets at around 7pm, while during winter, the sun rises ar around 6-7am and sets earlier at 4-5pm.

Thus, you should always check the daylight hours of the season and of the specific locations in Japan where you intend to shoot at. In general, we recommend couples to do their shoot in the early mornings and late afternoons. In the early mornings, you will be able to capture the soft rays of the morning sun while in the late afternoons you can capture the golden hour.hokkaido wedding photoshoot furano

Where should I stay when I travel to Japan for my photoshoot?

Generally, across all destinations, we recommend couples to stay within the city area, close to their chosen photoshoot locations, or close to amenities like subway stations. For Japan, you can choose to stay near the key photoshoot locations in which we have mentioned above!

Are there any extra fees?

Japan has plenty of locations that have become popular for wedding photoshoots. Some locations charge an entrance fee, while others may charge a photo fee to couples who are using their space for photoshoot.

For example, both the Fushimi Inari Shrine and the Gokoku Shrine charge a JPY 5,000 permit fee for couples who want to do their photoshoot there. Take note that these fees are charged by the management of the location, not by the photographers.

For OneThreeOneFour couples, you won’t have to worry for any hidden costs, as we will advise the relevant fees when we plan the photoshoot for you.japan wedding hptoshoot fushimi inari shrine
