The Hokkaido Winter Landscape Photography Adventure Jan 5 – 17, 2020
This page is for the 2020 tour, as the 2019 tour is now full. If you’d like to be added to the cancellation list for the 2019 tour, please contact us.
Hokkaido, the northern-most island of Japan, offers some of the most desolate and rugged yet sublimely beautiful winter landscape photography opportunities on the planet. It’s the minimalist winter photographer’s dream.
Tokyo based photographer Martin Bailey has been traveling to Hokkaido yearly since 2003 and has a deep understanding of the island. Although British born, Martin has lived in Japan for 27 years, speaks fluent Japanese and understands the culture fully, making him your perfect host.
We could write a novel about this tour and it wouldn’t get our message across as well as the video we made with footage from our 2017 tour, so please watch this video before you go on. Grab a drink, turn up your speakers and go full screen, then welcome to our world.
You’ll be provided with more details in our tour guidebook after you reserve your place, but here is an outline of our itinerary during our twelve-day landscape photography adventure in the frozen far north of Japan.
Jan 5 Haneda Airport
To ensure that the group is all together and ready to leave early on Jan 6, we include the night of Jan 5 (Sunday) in the tour, and for those that arrive early enough in the evening, we will start to get to know each other over an optional dinner at the hotel at Haneda airport.
