Contemporary Art of Japan
The “Contemporary Art of Japan” tour with Artisans of Leisure takes visitors to six centers of modern Japanese art and architecture.

WHAT YOU’LL DO: Learn how to embroider a kimono, apply gold leaf, dye silk, and arrange flowers (ikebana); discuss current trends with curators of modern art museums; shop the galleries in Tokyo’s Ginza district. HIGHLIGHTS: Spend three nights at Benesse House, an art museum and boutique hotel on Naoshima island. Walk beneath cherry trees in Kanazawa’s Kenrokuen Garden.
