Japan Art & Culture Tour Exploratory Meetup

Matsumoto City Museum of Art

Wet Paint is collaborating with TanpopoStudio to create a
Tour to Japan in 2019

East meets Wet Paint in this original tour of Japanese art, history, architecture and culture. We’ll not only explore Japanese arts and crafts, but also the food, scenic mountain towns, premier castle, traditional inn and optional hot spring visit. This 7 day tour will begin where traditional meets contemporary arts at the Nezu Museum in Tokyo. That afternoon, you’ll have an option to visit the Japanese Folk Art Museum or the d47 Museum. The following day, we’ll take a bullet train to the mountain town of Nagano for a unique experience of zen culture, temples and the refined vegetarian cuisine of Japan called shojin ryori. In the city of Matsumoto, we’ll tour one of Japan’s finest castles, visit museums and take hands-on art classes. Take a day trip to the meticulously preserved post town of Naraijyuku along the Nakasendo trail to shop and experience Edo era architecture and lacquerware. We’ll then head back to Tokyo to visit Asakusa, the “low town”, for shopping, sightseeing and entertainment near the popular Sensoji Temple before heading back home. (OR join our extended tour to Kyoto)
