Tokyo Craft

There is an important part of Tokyo history that with which most people never come in contact with: the craftsmanship of Tokyo's traditional arts that has been passed down from master to apprentice since the Edo period (1603-1868). Join us as we journey into this rarely-seen world of fine-pattern dyeing, costumed doll-making, intricate blades-forging (without molds), and soothing construction of melodious, thirteen-stringed instruments. You’ll soon see how such craftsmanship forms a beautiful bridge between Tokyo's past and its present.

Tokyo Nature

When imagining Tokyo, most people envisage a sprawling concrete jungle bathed in of glaring neon lights. Actually, though, technology and nature coexist harmoniously in the megalopolis. There’s no shortage of places from which to admire Tokyo’s natural splendor, from the bucolic Hinohara, the metropolis’ last true “village,” to more exotic locations like the Ogasawara archipelago. Take a video journey into the greenest parts of Japan’s capital!
