We'll fly from Los Angeles to Kyoto, Japan and stay in fabulous accommodations in Kyoto and Tokyo. Both hotels centrally located and easy access to stores and shopping.
We embrace this Land of the Rising Sun with a deluxe arts and crafts adventure. We will travel to Tokyo, Kyoto and Nara and participate in hands-on craft workshops, enjoy meaningful demonstrations, and discover our inner master artist. This experience is designed for people who appreciate ceremonial traditions, the intricacies of delicate textiles, meaningful demonstrations, and visits to picturesque shrines and temples that will awaken your hearts to the inherent beauty of Japan.
Japan is a rich culture, I actually got tears seeing the story of a famous kimono artist, it was so very touching. An evening of Japanese traditional food, and dance proves to be an educational look at the lives of the "Geisha ladies" with a question and answer period. They were so accommodating, sweet, and willing to answer all of our questions.
I hope you can join us for sushi , sake, and so much fun. Treat yourself to a Christmas present, rent a kimono there, dress the part and we will do Japan in 2024. Click the Craftours link above for specifics, oh and I will be Urban Sketching, and teaching a class how to start your sketch journey and practice.
I'll change that dialogue in your head that says
