Forget Tokyo, Osaka or Kyoto, get off the beaten track and follow Canon on a journey to some of the cities loved most by the camera. #SightShooting tells stories of travel through some of the most underrated cities in Japan such as Yanesen, Hakodate and Kamakura. 

#SightShooting introduces photographers to amazing spots in various Japanese cities

Think you’ve seen all of Japan? Think again. From the ancient shrine that was built in 1705 in Yanesen (Tokyo district) to a visit to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, #SightShooting presents a different side of Japan – cities that are as photogenic as they are rich in cultures and stories. From the new to the old, this series showcases a quiet delight to travelling in Japan, and its beauty told through photography.

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.

Visit Hakodate, the southern gateway to the island of Hokkaido

#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.

Capture crisp and sharp photos with EOS 80D

Capture the rustic beauty of Hakodate Morning Market, and catch a live squid or two while you’re there, or take a cable car ride up a wooded mountain to take in a breathtaking view of the city from the perfect vantage point. With the Canon EOS 80D, the successor to the EOS 70D, this camera boasts a powerful 24-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor with Dual Pixel AF and an impressive 45-point hybrid AF system (compared to EOS 70D’s 19-point AF system), translating to high quality, stunning images perfect for your travel book.

EOS 80D is feature-rich and versatile DSLR with high-speed quality and highly precise AF
