About Robert Day Travel

Robert Day's Japan Tours focus on providing unique experiences of Japanese architecture, art, and design. Because attention to good design is pervasive in Japanese culture we believe that this is a perfect way to experience aspects of Japanese life from unusual and exciting perspectives. A rice-paper scroll, a tea ceremony, a Zen temple rock garden, an ancient shrine - even a plate of Sushi all have something in common, they are all saturated with a culture-wide attention to the good, the true and the beautiful. Our Japan Tours travel to Tokyo, Kyoto and other nearby places seeking out interesting architecture, great art, great food and other wonderful cultural experiences.
