Welcome to LensTokyo

We believe that the best way to travel is through photography. Photography enables you to see places in detail. It allows you to slow down and immerse yourself into your surrounding. It motivates and inspires the inner adventurous spirit to walk in pursuit of the frame you’ve drawn in your head. Craft-fully merging that frame with the surroundings creates an image that is unique and specific to the location you’ve visited. A creative treasure through travel. The pursuit, the waiting, the anticipation and even the failing of capturing that frame teaches you a lot about the location you are in. These organic and authentic moments stay with you ages after the trip as memories you can revisit.
