From the ancient cultures of the Edo Period to new ones born from international and domestic exchange, Tokyo boasts an incredibly vibrant and diverse cultural landscape. This movie introduces a portion of this, from elements of traditional Japanese culture that many recognize today to some of the top traditional Japanese arts.
We hope you’ll be able to experience and enjoy the awe-inspiring culture of Edo and Tokyo—nurtured by the wisdom of everyday life and enhanced by a deeply refined sense of aesthetics—for yourself.
