Originally from Sweden, photographer Jens Madsen had always been enamoured with Japanese culture from a young age. After a 2011 trip to Japan took him all over the country, Jens decided to take the plunge and move to Kyoto in 2015.
He now shares his love for the city through Photo Taiken, combining his expertise as a guide with his love of photography, to offer people unique and interesting photo tours.
We asked Jens to share some of his favourite places in the ancient heart of Japan...
Photo Taiken offers a variety of packages, from photo shoot sightseeing tours around Kyoto, to studio shoots where you can transform into an 'oiran'.
