Sponsored by several companies, including Ito-en, the trip will see the photographers visiting popular spots across the country over 8 days, including the historic star-shaped fort in Goryokaku Park and the westernised Motomachi district located at the base of Mount Hakodate. Starting from Kitakata, the photographers will get to experience all the country has to offer as they speed their way to Tokyo via Japan’s famed shinkansen (bullet train). Think onsens, delectable local food and classic Japanese hospitality along the way – nestled amidst picture-perfect scenery that is any photographer’s dream.

Compromising of several challenges, the photographers must put their best lens forward as they attempt to capture the iconic imagery Japan has become known for. Can they keep up with the lighting fast Shinkansen, or do their delicate food arrangements justice? Will the crushing mass of human bodies at Tokyo Station prove too much to handle? Keep watching this space to find out who emerges on top.
