Hi Fuji X Passion, thank you to give me the opportunity to share my vision and love of Japan with this article.
To introduce myself, my name is Nicolas Wauters and I’m a Belgian based in Tokyo since 2013.
When I arrived in Japan, I created my own tour guide company and since then I’m working as a tour guide and photographer all around Japan.
My goal is to share my passion and love for Japan through private guided tours, images, and Photography Workshops.
