Don’t know your wabi sabi from your Hokusai’s Wave? Fear not. Neither did we until we did this brilliant tour. And now we strut around Tokyo spouting off about ‘quiet spaces’ and ‘Shinto motifs’ like pros. That’s right, once you’ve fully understood the origins of Japanese art, and how it has both absorbed and influenced international trends over the years, you’ll be equipped to truly appreciate the beauty of everything you see in Japan thereafter.
This tour, led by a former curator at London’s V&A Museum, will take you on a jaunt through three of the city’s lesser known museums for an insider’s look at Japanese art then and now, including a very special, behind the scenes visit at the famous Nezu Museum.
