To the land of the rising sun

日本 Japan

Japan travel becomes a balanced architectural mix of contemporary, traditional and modern.

But also culture, nature, art and … Japanese life are explicitly present. We travel through the land of the rising sun for two weeks.

###center:12175 ###

We start four days in Tokyo, a megalopolis, where ostensible chaos is in control, and where various streams of energy, people, traffic, culture and economy make the city. We take a blazing-fast Shinkansen trip to the more northerly situated Sendai for a visit to the media center of Toyo Ito.

In Tokyo we also roam the spacious environment in search of often lesser known architectural work of young upcoming talent or a hidden gem of modernist classics. Through a stopover in Kanazawa, the journey slowly evolves into tradition, nature and tranquility in the Kyoto area, where we get lost for a few days in the impressive collection of authentic Japanese temples, gardens and villas.

Then we travel even further south to the many islands in the Japanese Inland Sea, where we taste the art projects on Naoshima, Teshima and Inujima. ### center: 12190 ### Then we return to Tokyo by a stop in Nagoya.

14 days filled with small, fine architectural and cultural discoveries.
