Join us on the trip of a lifetime and see the amazing textile delights of Japan together with visits to iconic shrines and gardens. Highlights of the tour include fabric shopping in Tokyo, historic Kanazawa, well known for its well-preserved Edo-era districts, exploring different fabric types including Murayama-oshima tsumugi, Ushikubi-tsumugi and nishijin-ori silks and Kurume kasuri cotton as well as different dyeing techniques including Kaga Yuzen, Kyo-Yuzen, and Arimatsu Narumi Shibori. Workshops with local experts really bring Japanese textiles and culture to life. We'll meet Rika Stein, Temari ball expert, Hiroyuki Shindo indigo dyer, and Shibori master Mr Hirose Murase. You will go home with amazing memories and experiences and hopefully fall in love with Japan like we have!
