Sunday Telegraph - Edmund De Waal
Respected artist, Edmund De Waal, travelled to Japan with his family. Edmund had spent some time in Japan before, but this was his first time with his children. They travelled from the lights of Tokyo visiting Studio Ghibli, stayed in a Machiya in Kyoto and took on the rural arts of Naoshima. It was a bit of a whirlwind trip, but they provide a good insight in to their trip across contrasting Japan.
