Your travel itinerary could look like...

Day 1

Shinjuku is a special ward located in Tokyo Metropolis, Japan. It is a major commercial and administrative centre

Meet your tour guide outside of your accommodation and begin exploring! Get a feel for Tokyo and its unique buzz, then enjoy an evening meal at a local restaurant. It’s the perfect way to unwind before the trip really gets going!

Day 2

View of Akihabara at night featuring images of anime

It’s time for an anime-packed day! In the morning, visit the Suginami Animation Museum and learn about the fascinating history of anime art. Once your group has had a go at their own anime drawings, spend some free time exploring the Akihabara area – the epicentre of anime and manga.

Day 3

Ashinoko Lake is a scenic lake in the Hakone area of Kanagawa Prefecture in Japan

Today is a busy one! Catch the bullet train to Hakone to enjoy views of the glorious Mount Fuji – the perfect stop for a quick watercolour session.

Afterwards, visit the Hakone Open-Air Museum to admire stunning sculptures and works of art by Picasso, Taro Okamoto, Yasuo Mizui and many more.

Once you’ve walked around this beautiful exhibition, put your feet up on a cruise across Lake Ashi. Encourage your students to capture their tranquil surroundings on camera or paper.

For even more spectacular sights, visit the Mt Komagatake Ropeway. The colours here change each season and offer panoramic views across the lush landscape, which stretches on for miles.

It’s been a tiring one, so relax on the bullet train back to Tokyo and enjoy a delicious local meal on your return.

Day 4

Japan, Shibuya Ward, Shibuya Crossing busy with people in the daytime

Enjoy some free time shopping and exploring Shibuya. This area is home to the world’s busiest pedestrian crossing, which most of your students will only have seen in photos until now!

In the afternoon, visit the Imperial Palace Gardens for some quiet time sketching and strolling. End your day with a trip to the Tokyo National Museum, where your group can see various collections of artwork and preserved objects from across Asia.

Day 5

After breakfast, take a trip to the Mori Art Museum for a spot of modern art. This museum is ideal for those who enjoy less traditional artforms, such as architecture, video, fashion and design. While you’re there, soar up to the Roppongi Hills Observation Deck for breath-taking views of the sprawling metropolis below you!

Stop for some lunch, then do some sightseeing in the Asakusa district. The colourful temples and bustling nature of this area are sure to spark inspiration in art, design and photography students alike!

Day 6

Crowded urban scene at famous Takeshita Street, Harajuku district, Tokyo, Japan

Explore the urban art scene this morning with a visit to the Harajuku district. This trendy area is renowned for its street art and youth fashion, so it’s a must-see for creative classes!
