“Japan was the gateway to that great East of which I had been dreaming since I had seen my first Japanese prints…”

- Frank Lloyd Wright, An Autobiography


While his contemporaries looked to Europe for inspiration, it was the enigmatic culture of Japan that cast its spell on the young Frank Lloyd Wright. Ever since the 1890s, when Wright first encountered Japanese art and architecture in Chicago, he longed to see the country itself. And from 1905 to 1922, he traveled there seven times while designing a total of fourteen projects, including the Imperial Hotel.

Travel in the architect’s footsteps and into the heart of Japanese culture, discovering what Wright loved about Japan and the ideas from “that great East” which proved influential throughout his career. Fall in love with Japan, as Wright did, on this 11-day, 10-night journey.

Discover Tokyo, Kyoto, Nagoya, Kobe and so much more. See masterpieces of contemporary architecture while taking part in traditional cultural experiences on this immersive, experiential journey. Savor regional cuisine, receive a Shinto blessing, participate in a tea ceremony, meditate on Zen Buddhism, soak in a hot spring and stroll tranquil gardens, all during the unforgettable beauty of the fall color season.
