WaNavi Japan - Authentic Japanese Culture Immersion Experiences.jpg

The Japanese culture experience has two components - a lecture on Japanese culture, followed by an authentic Japanese culture experience. 


The lecture aims to unravel the roots of Japanese culture, and dives deep into concepts unique to Japan. The lecture also acts as a steppingstone for an authentic Japanese culture experience by covering the history, mannerisms, and philosophy of each form of art the students will experience. 


Participants have access to the top masters in each field, and the dialogue with the masters, along with the very authentic cultural experience creates a very profound and rich once-in-a-lifetime encounter.
