Japanese Traditional Activities

With their links to Zen Buddhism and the unique aesthetic of wabi sabi, traditional Japanese arts are first and foremost a disciplined meditation, which, once mastered, allows for impressively creative emotional expression. These traditional activities are often referred to as "the way", with tea ceremony, or chado, meaning the way of tea, shodo, or calligraphy, the way of writing, and ikebana, sometimes called kado, the way of flowers.

Trying a traditional Japanese art can be a wonderful addition to your visit to Japan, and Into Japan is delighted to be able to arrange the experience for you.
