Please read the article below to learn more about shooting with "Capture My Japan."

Tokyo Station

Tokyo Station is a popular spot for wedding photography. Among them, the area in front of the Marunouchi station building on the east side of Tokyo Station is a very popular wedding photography location. The station building is lit up at night, making it a great place to take beautiful and atmospheric photos.

It's also part of the Marunouchi area, which I'll introduce later, so one of its attractions is that you can take photos along with other fashionable photo spots.


The Marunouchi area is one of the best photo spots in Tokyo where you can take stylish and sophisticated photos, such as the ruins of the Wadakuramon Guardhouse, which has a stone structure, and Marunouchi Nakadori, which is lined with brand shops.

It is a place with many photo spots, so it is recommended that you allow a long time for taking photos. There are suitable shooting spots for both daytime and night photography, so it is a good idea to consult with your photographer and decide on the time of day to shoot.


Shibuya, the epicenter of Japan's youth culture, is one of the busiest areas in Tokyo and has a dazzling atmosphere. Shibuya is recommended for those who want to take urban photos that are typical of Tokyo, or those who want to take wedding photos that look like snapshots.

Among them, the scramble crossing northwest of JR Shibuya Station is said to be the ``world's most famous intersection'' and ``the world's busiest intersection,'' and is a tourist spot representing Shibuya where many people gather. I highly recommend this place because you can take wedding photos that are unique to Shibuya and cannot be found anywhere else.

Capture MyJapan also has a special plan specifically for Shibuya photography , so be sure to take advantage of it.

Hibiya Park

Hibiya Park opened in 1903 as Japan's first modern Western-style park. Despite being close to Tokyo Station and Ginza and surrounded by office buildings and commercial facilities, it is an urban oasis surrounded by rich nature.

In spring, six types of cherry blossoms are in full bloom, making it possible to take wedding photos in a beautiful natural setting. Additionally, in autumn, you can take photos in typical autumn scenery in Japan, such as avenues of ginkgo trees with yellowing leaves and beautiful colorful autumn leaves.

After taking photos in the Marunouchi area, it might be a good idea to take a short walk and stop by.

Tokyo National Museum

Tokyo National Museum is the oldest museum in Japan, founded in 1872. Many people visit every day to see the various cultural assets on display, including Japanese and Oriental art.

Did you know that you can take wedding photos at such a museum? The interior of the Tokyo National Museum has a very stylish and high-quality atmosphere, and is often used in movies and TV dramas. You can take impressive photos on the grand staircase made of marble.

If you wish to take photos in Tokyo National Park, you will need to apply to the museum in advance and pay the application fee. In addition, individuals cannot apply for photo shoots, and it is also a popular shooting location, so we recommend consulting with a photographer as early as possible. Capture My Japan also accepts photo shoots at the Tokyo National Museum, so please consider it.

Kiyosumi Garden

If you want to take wedding photos in a traditional Japanese garden, we recommend Kiyosumi Garden.

It is a garden where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery while walking around the pond in the center, and it is decorated with famous stones and rockery mountains imported from all over Japan. Another attraction is the beautiful flowers that bloom in each season.

There is also a tea room located in the shape of a pond that can be rented out. You can take wedding photos in a quaint building with traditional tatami floors.


If you want to take Japanese-style wedding photos in Tokyo, we recommend the Asakusa area. In particular, the area around Sensoji Temple, which is famous for its large red lanterns, allows you to take photos with Japanese-style buildings, so you can keep your memories of Japan with you.

If you're shooting a wedding in Asakusa, it's fine to wear a dress, but we also recommend wearing a kimono, which is traditional Japanese clothing. There are several shops in Asakusa where you can rent kimonos.

Sensoji Temple is overflowing with people during the day, so if you want to take photos in peace, it's best to come early in the morning before the shops in the shopping district open or in the evening after they close.

Kasai Rinkai Park

Kasai Rinkai Park, a large park facing Tokyo Bay, has so many things to see, such as an aquarium, aviary garden, and a large Ferris wheel, that you can spend all day there.

It is also a popular photo spot for weddings, and you can take photos in a variety of situations, including seasonal flowers, tree-lined streets, Tokyo Bay, and lawns. If you want to take photos with the ocean, but also with nature such as flowers, Kasai Rinkai Park is the perfect location for you.

Meiji Shrine Gaien Ginkgo Trees

Meiji Jingu Gaien Ginkgo Tree Avenue is a tree-lined road that extends from the Aoyama 2-chome intersection on National Route 246 to the baseball field. Ginkgo trees are planted on both sides of the road, and in the fall, the leaves of the ginkgo trees turn yellow, making it possible to take wedding photos in the midst of a spectacular golden view.

Not only in autumn, but also in summer, it becomes a beautiful green tunnel where you can take wedding photos surrounded by greenery.

Since it is a popular tourist spot, we recommend taking photos early in the morning when there are fewer people, especially during the yellowing season.

Yoyogi park

Yoyogi Park is located in the middle of the city, close to the station, but it is a place where you can take photos while feeling nature. The cherry blossoms in spring and the autumn leaves are especially popular, and you can take wedding photos that give you a sense of Japanese nature.

Yoyogi Park is recommended for those who want to enjoy a variety of photo shoots with nature, as it is easily accessible and the site is quite large.

Showa Memorial Park

Showa Kinen Park is one of Japan's leading national parks and has a vast area, where you can take wedding photos in the lush natural environment and flowers that change with the seasons. Beautiful flower scenery spreads throughout each season, including cherry blossoms and tulips in spring, hydrangeas and sunflowers in summer, ginkgo and maple in autumn, and sasanquat and plum in winter.

There is also a Japanese garden within the park, so it is a recommended location for those who want to take Japanese-style wedding photos.

Shiba Park

Shiba Park is one of the oldest parks in Japan, having opened in 1873. It is located near Tokyo Tower, a landmark in Japan, and you can take pictures of Tokyo Tower up close along with other buildings in Tokyo.

Around February, 70 plum trees will be in full bloom, and from late March to early April, 140 cherry trees will be in full bloom, so it's recommended to take photos at the same time.

Koishikawa Korakuen

Koishikawa Korakuen is a historic Japanese garden adjacent to Tokyo Dome. It is a place where you can take pictures of the beautiful natural scenery of each season, such as cherry blossoms in spring, fresh greenery in early summer, autumn leaves in autumn, and snowy scenery in winter, making it perfect for a Japanese-style wedding.

This is a photo spot that we recommend for those who want to take Japanese-style wedding photos in a calm place, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Odaiba Seaside Park

Odaiba Seaside Park is a park located in the Odaiba area, where leisure facilities and commercial facilities are gathered.

The Rainbow Bridge, which most Japanese people think of when they think of Odaiba, and the Fuji Television Headquarters Building, which has an impressive spherical observation deck, can be seen from Odaiba Seaside Park.

It's great during the day, but if you're looking to take pictures, we also recommend taking pictures in the evening and at night. You are sure to be able to take wonderful wedding photos at one of the best sunset and night view spots in Tokyo.
