This photo trip is intended for foreign nationals and amateur photographers to discover Imabari by photographing its architecture and structures, and by sharing their shots on social media.
Imabari has many distinctive buildings, including works by famous architects, and there are numerous interesting structures on the Shimanami Kaidō between Honshu and Shikoku.
On this Photo Trip, we will photograph structures built using new technology, and historic buildings that have survived to the present. We'll shoot both inside and outside. This trip offers a chance to discover new possibilities in Imabari through a deeper appreciation of these facilities and technologies, and by bringing their appeal into clearer focus.
The trip will be led by Rod Walters, who will also be a judge of the 2018 Imabari Tourism Photo Contest sponsored by the Association (deadline for submissions, Jan 31).
