Description


Join us at Stanfords to celebrate the art of Japanese living with new DK Eyewitness Travel book, Be More Japan – an evening of cultural insight, top travel tips and Japanese whisky tasting! Be More Japan is a celebration of all things Japanese, from the country’s fascinating, ancient traditions to its unique and influential modern culture.

This event will be a panel discussion between DK Eyewitness Travel Guides, InsideAsia Tours – the leading Japan travel specialists and Nikka (Japanese) Whisky ambassadors. The panel discussion will cover a wide range of topics including history, art, cultural quirks as well as travel information and how to plan the perfect trip.

Learn why Japan is one of the top travel destinations for 2019 from the experts and learn how to Be More Japan wherever you are.
