DAY 2 : This morning we’ll transfer to the ancient city of Kyoto, which has been a hub of traditional culture for hundreds of years. Kyoto includes 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites—the most of any one city. On our first morning we will explore the rich urban fabric of Kyoto’s Machiya townhouses, several of which were saved with support from WMF. This afternoon, we’ll learn about the art of indigo dying in a well-established studio. In the evening, we’ll walk through the atmospheric streets of the Higashiyama neighborhood on our way to dinner.
