A big part of Japan's allure lies in its seamless fusion of tradition and modernity, and the blend of ancient customs fused with technology and contemporary design. This concept will be explored at the Landscapes of Japan, past and present, East and West event at Tokyo's Hotel Gajoen, which delves into the history and culture of different regions – from their foods and scenery through to hot springs, festivals, and folk crafts.
Both nostalgic and modern/retro cultures will be explored, offering a beautiful contrast between old and new.
If you are planning to attend, please note that the event takes place in two parts: from December 2 until December 24, and from January 1 to January 14. Adult admission is priced at 1500 JPY, and tickets can be arranged in advance online here.
