There has been overwhelming interest from BDAV members for a Study Tour to Japan, so following on from the success of our tours to China and Spain, we are now pleased to announce our tour to Japan in June 2017.
The landscapes, climate, topography as well as the history of its people have all influenced the culture and architecture that has developed over the millennia. During its history, the Japanese have been renowned for absorbing elements of other cultures, notably Chinese and Korean. Since the mid-19th century with the end of its feudal system of government and its rapid industrialisation, Japan has created its own unique identity and has elevated their building, interior and landscape design to an art form.
Our touring program will visit many examples of traditional and modern Japanese architecture as well as experience exciting, dynamic modern Tokyo and traditional Kyoto, with its numerous World Heritage listed architectural sites.
