Few places in the world are as alluring as Japan when it comes to street photography. The neon alleyways of Tokyo, Osaka, and other major cities provide perfect opportunities for evocative night photography, while the bustling trains and intersections offer an infinite source of inspiration for those looking for some snaps in the daylight hours.

In homage to the country's reputation as a street photographer's paradise, Bored Panda has compiled this list containing some of the best street snaps we could find. In it you'll see work from reputed street photographers such as Masashi Wakui and Takeshi Yasui, as well as many others. If you've never been to Japan then these pictures will make you want to go. And if you have been before then they'll make you want to go again. Just don't forget your camera!

I've been living in Japan for the last 10 years and narrow roads and shops and homes still stun me, particularly in hot spring towns.
