Fall Colours...

Spring, or "Hanami season" is the most beautiful season in Japan, the cherry blossoms are a sight to behold. However, it's extremely crowded & very inconvenient.

Fall offers a great chance to explore the city with very comfortable weather, beautiful red fall leaves and more manageable crowds.

The paradox of choice...

Why This Workshop?

After living abroad in Japan & Korea, I realized that travelling is one of those life-defining experiences that give you perspective on your life and the world. It makes you think about the things that really matter.

Japan

Tokyo 2019

South Korea

Seoul 2018

The reality is that most of us have on average about 4000 weeks to live. Time is our most precious currency, yet we keep postponing life, our hopes & dreams.

So this workshop has been designed with that in mind. It's all about taking action, sharing a significant, holistic experience with like-minded people and focusing on what we love, capturing moments in time & creating memories.
