WHAT IS ‘ART SPACE JAPAN’?


To connect with the essence of any country and its culture, you need to explore its cities, wander its natural landscapes, indulge in its cuisine and finally, immerse yourself in its arts. One of the most engaging cultures in the world, Japan is home to a thriving arts scene – from its traditional arts and refined cultural practices, through to the contemporary, best defined by its pop-culture of ‘anime’, ‘manga’ and acclaimed modern artists. Often contradictory, sometimes elusive yet always engaging, we encourage you to explore Japan through its arts and crafts – a journey that starts with the concept of the entire country as a creative space, what we like to call – Art Space Japan.
