Blain Harasymiw in Japan Photo Tour and Workshops visit only the most photogenic and unique destinations. For 21 years Blain and his team have been exploring around Japan, and know the very best locations to journey in all year round.
Winter in Japan is spectacular for landscape birding and wildlife adventure photography. Highlights during winter workshops in Japan include up-close and personal encounters with wild Snow Monkeys in Nagano, view Mt. Fuji in Yamanashi, fly to Japans most northern island Hokkaido to photograph the Red-crowned crane, White-tailed eagle, Blakiston’s fish owl and Steller's Sea Eagle. Visit the blue pond Hokkaido and area for the outstanding winter wonderland landscapes everyone adores. In the winters of 2015, 2016 and 2017 Blain and participants photographed the largest herd of Sika Deer on our planet. This is a rare event, and Blain hopes you will also be honored to view such a spectacular sight in 2019 with him!
Cherry Blossom Photo Tour Japan is beautiful. Blain journeys with participants cross country searching for that perfect cherry blossom, and every year they discover together “The Perfect Cherry Blossom.” Highlights during spring workshop include visiting exclusive Ochaya Maiko Geisha ‘tea houses’ in Kyoto style. Exotic birding and wildlife adventures film the Japanese white-eye ‘Mejiro’ while they savor the sweet nectar of the cherry blossom. Visit the wild Snow Monkey without snow, and photograph adorable newborn baby snow monkeys playing by the hot springs while proud mothers lay back and enjoy the hot springs bath. Visit the most special and photogenic Buddhist-Shinto shrines and temples. Share the same zen garden paths that ancient Samurai walked upon.
