Venue : Mishima, Shizuoka, Japan When : Nov 8th - Nov 9th 2023

Japan has an incredibly rich culture, and there are a myriad of ways to immerse yourself in it. The Open the Treasure of Japan! Project takes place in the Mishima area of Shizuoka, and provides participants with some once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to experience this culture in unique ways.

The schedule for the two-day, one night event includes:

  • A night tour of the Mishima Taisha Shrine grounds, and a formal night worship ceremony – these are rare experiences even for locals to partake in
  • A special viewing of the Wind Ensemble and a traditional Japanese dance performance by Hideki Togi, a musician who is part of the Imperial Household Agency's Music Department
  • A premium dinner at Ryusen-en (a registered tangible cultural property) made by renowned chefs using local ingredients
  • A gagaku performance, which is a type of Japanese classical music
  • A visit to Rakujyuen Garden, which has been designated as a national natural monument and place of scenic beauty since 1950
  • A special guided tour of the Sano Museum of Art "Artisans of Japanese Swords" exhibition

This limited-capacity experience also includes overnight accommodation at Fujisan Mishima Tokyu Hotel, and an English-speaking interpreter so that none of the magic is lost in translation.
