Take a stroll along the beautiful Yokohama English Garden

Traverse through Yokohama as you sightsee a beautifully sculptured garden set within the city, or indulge in a hot bun in Yokohama Chinatown, Japan’s largest. The city comes alive in the evening as buildings light up against the setting sun. Capture the glowing essence of Yokohama’s massive cityscape from the pier with EOS 750D – perfect for low light conditions.

#SightShooting also brings us to five of the best places to shoot up north in Hakodate, Hokkaido’s third largest city. Best known for its spectacular view from Mount Hakodate and its range of delectable seafood, this city is made for street and landscape photography.
