During the stay in Japan, students will have experiences in the cities of Osaka and Tokyo (two of the world’s largest metropolitan areas) and immersive time in Kyoto (the cultural capital of Japan). Attendees will visit several Japanese temples and gardens, and learn about Japanese art, architecture, garden design, urban planning/design & urban agriculture. The group will travel via train through some of Japan’s agricultural countryside, and take walking and/or bike tours of parts of Kyoto. Please contact Lee Skabelund if you have any questions.
