A message from Kara

Coming to Japan in the 90s for the first time was one of those pivotal moments which changed my life forever. I have journeyed to almost every remote region of Japan to photograph and document an amazing network of ancient sacred sites existing across Japan, and now take immense pleasure in guiding people from around the world to these remarkable places. 
I think the most touching remark a tour participant said to me was..."Kara, you live and breathe Japan!"...and it's so true, I can't imagine my life without Japan!  

Join me for one of my special tours which will take you on a journey into the sacred gateways of Japan, and watch your world be transformed!
