Join Sir Dork, and influencer Sweetheart Harley on an extraordinary journey of learning and exploring.
During the program you will participate in five hands-on toy photography lessons, both in class and on location. You will also learn about and experience anime and pop culture style.
Experience both traditional and pop culture in Japan by visiting Akihabara and Harajuku on this tour.
Akihabara is the home of Tokyo’s ‘Otaku’ culture. Translated into English, ‘Otaku’ means 'obsession,' but it really describes the hardcore fans of manga, anime and video games.
Once an area of subculture hidden from the rest of Japan, more recent times have dedicated the area as a popular place for people to go, shop, and soak up the unique and quirky atmosphere.
With maid cafes, fashion trends and shops catering to enthusiastic hobbyists of all types, you’ll discover a fascinating and perplexing side of Tokyo that most people never get to see.
In Tokyo, spend the day with a family learning about traditions and customs.
Then it’s off to Mt. Fuji for a nature study and eco forest walk with a nature guide.
Visit Kyoto to learn about traditional culture, visit a manga museum to learn about drawing and experience a class in Kimono dressing.
