This course is a journey of discovery - documenting dichotomies, synergies and juxtapositions, and experiencing the power of the old and the shock of the new. Participants explore Japan’s present day capital, Tokyo, and its ancient capital, Kyoto (from 794-1868 CE), discovering, recording, and interpreting examples of traditional Japanese aesthetic values and their modern day manifestations.
