Comprised of four main islands and many small islands, Japan is divided into main regions: Hokkaido, Tohoku, Kanto, Chubu, Kansai, Chugoku, Shikoku, Kyushu and Okinawa. In this span of land and culture, Japanese weddings overflow with color, celebration and honor. Although filled with rich Japanese tradition, weddings in Japan are also starting to include western traditions as well into their marriage ceremonies.
Couples being married in Japan have the option of leaning towards a traditional Japanese ceremony, a western church-style wedding or a dynamic medley of both. Regardless of style or taste selection, wedding couples will have a wide variety of scenery to have their wedding pictures taken. In many Japanese weddings, the bride will change her outfit up to four times—giving the wedding photographer an assortment of opportunities to shoot the bride in an assortment of dress.
Discovering Japan will be a delight for all those involved in the wedding festivities. The capital city of Tokyo will offer couples and wedding guests an endless variety of stunning sceneries, exciting shopping experiences and delightful restaurants to enjoy.

Other picturesque features of Japan include the hundreds of impressive temples and the scores of beautiful gardens that decorate the land. Included in this landscape is the spectacular Mount Fuji, the tallest mountain in Japan, which can be seen on a clear day from Tokyo and will make a stunning backdrop for wedding pictures.
