The study tour in Japan aims to provide students with the opportunity to experience a culture that has a deep and embedded engagement with design and aesthetics. It explores traditional and contemporary culture in Tokyo, Kyoto and Naoshima. While this is a visual communication subject, the tour encompasses all aspects of design: fashion, architecture, interiors, performance, etc. In addition to visiting museums, galleries and special exhibitions, there is an emphasis on tours of contemporary and traditional artisanal studios and experiencing the general cultural fabric of Japan. Design at a very high level is incorporated into many everyday aspects of life in Japan and for this reason experiencing daily life is in itself a design education.
