I'll be heading to Japan for vacation Dec 17th-Jan 6th and would love everyone's advice on where I should go, do and eat. I'm planning on bringing my Canon 5D3, a recently acquired 17-40L, 50 1.4 and 70-200 2.8LII. Will the 50 be needed at all? Can I just move and expect my 17-40 and 70-200 to cover the distance?
Here are a list of places I'm thinking of going. Would love everyone's feedback on whether it's a must for me to go or not and just as important WHEN I should go for optimal shooting times. I also plan to eat at 3-4 of the top sushi restaurants so advice on that would be helpful too!
Rainbow Bridge - Nighttime Shoot
Mori Tower vs. Metro Govt Tower - Nighttime shoot
Jigokudani Snow Monkeys
Arashiyama Bamboo Forest
Kinkakuji Temple (Is it worth going on New Years eve? My buddy wants to go clubbing... but I hear the illumination is nice)
Fushimi Inari Shrine
Osaka Kaiyukan Aquarium
