About the workshop
Shinto, life of devotion in a universe of spirits, isn’t some quaint folk tradition. It’s a magical realism whose pervading influence Japanese feel from first day to last.
You’ll begin your encounter with Shinto in Japan’s capital Tokyo — a megapolis humans share with ghosts of ancestors, spirits of temples, water, earth and more. You’ll visit Sanja, one of Tokyo’s most important Shinto festivals, and find contemporary art and architecture where least expected — on Seto Islands in Inland Sea. Seto archipelago is a unique project to transform several dying islands into a world-class culture center. Natural energies have inspired the many painters, photographers and architects whose work is showcased here. Instead of being locked up in galleries for a high concentration of talent per meter, these creations became part of the environment and landscape, living out their forms under the sky and sharing their creative charge with the viewer.
We’ll end the trip with a brief stop and a short taste of Japan’s medieval capital Kyoto, the birthplace of the country’s elegance, and have dinner at Kamo river, where water spirits kappa are said to dwell.
