Past & Present

Tradition and Modernity

Japan is a land of striking contrasts, the most apparent being the harmonious distinction between the modern and the traditional. While Tokyo and Naoshima are cloaked in the high-tech, contemporary, and ultra-modern, cities like Kyoto and Nara reveal Japan’s ancient soul. This graceful confluence of cultures is showcased in this unique and enriching tour.
