Welcome to my website.

I am Stefaan Goossens, a Kyoto based photographer from Belgium.

Join me on my journey and discover the beauty of Kyoto and Japan through the eyes of my ever wandering lens. Kyoto is much more than the plethora of famous landmarks and tourist spots. While most first time visitors mainly focus on crossing the essential must-visits of their list, Kyoto actually has so much more to offer. As the ancient capital of Japan, Kyoto is steeped in old traditions and customs that to this day are being practiced by many locals.


I am a visual storyteller passionate about showcasing the beauty that lies in the simplicity of the daily life. My focus is mainly on street photography and documenting the everyday life of people in Kyoto. My goal is to inspire you to come and discover Kyoto with your own eyes and show you that there is much more to explore beyond the famous sightseeing spots.

Through my many years of working in Japan's tourism sector, I have build up an extensive knowledge about Japan and Kyoto in particular, from the main tourist spots to the hidden gems and everything in between. Together with my passion for photography, my aim is to inspire photographers, from amateurs to professionals, in finding the best spots in Kyoto where you can take those iconic, awe-inspiring and creative shots, while at the same time experiencing the true beauty of the everyday life of Kyotoites.
