Kyoto was the Imperial capital of Japan for over 1000 years until the mid 19th century. Because this was the Imperial center of Japan for that period, most of Japan's great traditions and culture grew and were nurtured here by dedicated artisans. Today those traditions and culture are still thriving in this ancient city, thanks to the presence of artists and craftmen. In this program we will introduce some of the city's finest crafts people who have perfected the techniques handed down by their forebears for centuries in Kyoto.
