Event Description

Join Mandy Shaw on an extraordinary journey to the land of the rising sun! A fascinating fusion of old and new, the ultra-modern and an ancient culture, Japan's soaring skyscrapers and hi-tech innovation sit side by side with historic pagodas and traditional shrines. A country with deep-rooted cultural and religious beliefs, Japan also has a long history of textile excellence making this tour the trip of a lifetime for quilters, patchwork and embroidery aficionados alike. As you visit Tokyo, Takayama, Kyoto and Fukuoka, you'll explore cultural sights, meet local craftspeople and take in the very best that Japan has to offer in terms of textiles. Along the way you'll travel in the comfort of Japan's famed Bullet Train and soak up the country's physical beauty around Lake Kawaguchi, in the shadow of iconic Mount Fuji. Your tour culminates with a 2-day visit to Japan's Great Festival of Quilts where you'll be astonished at the finesse demonstrated in the work of some of Japan's finest quilters.
