WEBINAR: Inside Japan's Tradition and Modernity with Paula Swart

WEBINAR: Inside Japan's Tradition and Modernity with Paula Swart

Japan is a place where eye-popping modernity and long-standing traditions harmoniously coexist. From Shinto shrines standing near skyscrapers to museums in modern architecture styles displaying ancient artifacts. How about meeting your museum guide, the cute robot named ‘Mr. Art’. One can enjoy carefully prepared ramen served in cozy restaurants, then dip into large establishments serving sushi by conveyor belt. Most notably in the streets of Kyoto, one can see people wearing the latest street style standing beside geisha wearing traditional kimono. Join UBC lecturer and Asian art expert Paula Swart for an educational and entertaining webinar to discuss these contrasts and more, and why they work so well in Japan's culture.

Travel with Paula on "South Japan's Coastlines, Colours, and Culture", October 17 - 30, 2022. Learn more here.
