Hi and thanks for stopping by!


About me;
I was born 1982 in Malmö, Sweden.
I’ve been a freelance photographer since for over 15 years and I’ve been writing professionally since 2007.

Since 2008 I’ve been spending most of my time in Tokyo, working as a Japan correspondent for several Swedish and international publications as well as a freelance photographer for a wide range of clients (have a look below).

I’m happy to help both private and corporate clients with anything related to Tokyo and Japan. Coming to Tokyo for the first time and want to make sure you get the most out of the trip? Hire me as a trip coordinator as well as your private photographer and/or interpreter while you’re here. Don’t hesitate to contact me and we’ll work something out!

My clients includes companies such as: Bloomberg (US), Neon (DE), TEDxTokyo (JP), Pecha Kucha (JP), Tokyofaces.com (JP), Number 1 Shimbun (JP), Space Shower Music (JP), Hansel & Gretel Harajuku (JP), Sydsvenska Dagbladet (SE), Sveriges Radio (SE), TT (SE), Folio (SE), Svenska Dagbladet (SE), Ladies of Steampunk (US), Elle (SE), Damernas Värld (SE), Konstvärlden (SE), Hufvudstadsbladet (FI), STO-CPH (SE), RES (SE), UO (HK), GQ (UK).

I’ve also worked together with a few musical superstars, including: ACO, Kaji Hideki, The Radio Dept, Erlend Öye and Minilouge.

  1. Hej! Jag och min man ska åka till Tokyo om 4 veckor. Ska bli spännande att se och uppleva Tokyo. Jag skulle gärna vilja gå på en morgonträning för sumobrottare. Undrar om du kan ge tips hur man går till väga. Läste nånstans att man ska boka detta i förväg och att man ej kunde komma dit utan vidare. Vi reser ej i grupp. Har du något tips var och om man måste förboka osv? Lite svårt att hitta info om det/ ha en bra dag
    Med vänlig hälsning, Eva Åkesson
