The annual Japan Quilting Expo will be held in Yokohama, Tokyo in November 2010. This Expo attracts quilters from all over the world including Australia. It is a 3-day event that shows the latest trends and styles in Japanese quilting with workshops and social events at the Expo.
Travel Associates are organising a tour to the Expo. After spending three days at the Expo, participants will travel to Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan and, as well as general sightseeing, will have a guided tour of local fabric shops and attend a half day quilting workshop with a well known Kyoto quilter.
Three days of sightseeing in Tokyo follow including a visit to Nippori Fabric City. Accommodation is 3-4 star and travel on the Shinkansen between Tokyo and Kyoto is a highlight. The 10 day/9 night tour, fully escorted from Australia by Japan Holidays staff costs from $5,249.
