Spring Tour (Mon 9 – Fri 20 May 2016 and Mon 8 – Fri 19 May 2017)
Autumn Tour (Mon 17 – Fri 28 October 2016 and Mon 16 – Fri 27 October 2017)
Beginning in the historically significant southern city of Fukuoka and finishing in the ancient capital of Kyoto these unique small-group tours include trips to sites that have been most popular with our tour members over the last seven years. They encompass aspects of both traditional and modern Japanese art with discussions and visits
to important art museum collections, temples, shrines, gardens and craft centers.
As well as site visits in Kyoto we will also spend extended time at the ‘art island’ of Naoshima
its modernist museums and art collections and in northern Kyushu where there will be time
to enjoy traditional hospitality at a Japanese hot springs inn.
