JR Biei Station

Dohoku Local - Seasonality


North Hokkaido has so many beautiful locations that it’s absolutely perfect for photoshoots! So while you are here, why not have a professional photographer take some amazing photos of you to remember your holiday by?


You’ll be picked up at JR Biei Station by your private photographer, who will take you to a few photographic spots that only the locals know– and you’ll have a chance to do a little bit of sightseeing along the way! He’ll take some wonderful portraits of you over the course of this three-hour session that will surely make wonderful souvenirs of your time here in Dohoku. This is a great experience for influencers, couples, families or even solo travelers who are just looking for someone to take a few shots of them in Hokkaido!


The price includes your Dohoku-based photographer, fifty shots and an English-speaking interpreter. Your photographer will use his local knowledge to select the best spots for your photography but if you have a special request for a type of picture or location that you’d like for your photography, please don’t hesitate to let us know. We will do our best to meet your request, but note that it may not always be possible (for example, if the location is a very popular tourism spot with too many people for portrait photography, or if the location you have requested is out-of-bounds to the general public).
