Japan 2018

Cherry Blossom, Palaces, Tokyo, Mt Fuji, Kyoto…. and more….

We have promised for several seasons to host a painting course in Japan and are planning to do so in April 2018.

The dates are now confirmed as 7th April – 20th April.

We will offer a two week trip visiting several major cities and special places we know will be a pleasure to paint. This is cherry blossom season when Japan is at it best. We are beginning our tour with four nights in the capital city of Tokyo  moving on to Hanoke to see mount Fuji for two nights, travelling after that to Kyoto for five nights and finally finishing off in Osaka for three nights. There is also an optional trip to Hiroshima to visit the peace memorial.

We have an exciting programme of locations, mixing ancient and modern. A full list of locations is available on booking.
