Empty Kyoto・閑かなる京都

A Photography Book,
A Once in a Lifetime Opportunity

As the center of Japan’s culture, and capitol for over 1000 years, Kyoto has often been bedeviled by overtourism. In 2020 & 2021 however, the crowds disappeared, offering a unique chance to capture the city’s natural beauty without distractions.

Empty Kyoto is a compilation of these photographs, a document of this once-in-a-lifetime period.

Our Kickstarter was successful! Thanks for your support. The book is being readied for printing now, and should be available in November 2023.
