About Japan Camera Hunter

Welcome to my site of many wonders, find out all about Japan Camera Hunter and feel free to contact me if you have any questions

My name is Bellamy Hunt, AKA Japancamerahunter. I live in Tokyo and love exploring the city, taking pictures and sharing my photographic knowledge with people. If you are ever in town drop me a line. You cannot miss me, I will be the guy walking around with a camera, a camera bag, a camera T-shirt and a nice shiny head. Chances are you will see me in one of the many camera shops around town.
