November 9-20, 2022

With hosts Maya Kudo & Cheryl Sturm, see Tokyo through the eyes of one of Japan’s top guides during autumn. Take in the spectacular fall colors in the Japanese gardens and the area around Mt. Fuji and even tour the sacred mountain herself before spending two overnights in a nearby traditional ryokan (inn). Learn firsthand about ancient arts—sumo, geisha, and taiko—and meet artists keeping these traditions alive. Meet a celebrated Japanese print artist at her home along with her husband, a well-known Noh mask artist. Ride Japan’s famous bullet trains and see contemporary architecture by Pritzker Prize-winning architects. In contrast, witness the exquisite natural beauty around Lake Ashi, overlooked by many visitors to Japan, and have a private Zen meditation lesson at a temple in old Kyoto.
