Whether it’s within ourselves or between us and the world, maintaining balance is a constant struggle. Tokyo offers a particularly exciting backdrop to study the topic of balance. With historic temples living among neon-lit skyscrapers, participants will be surrounded with the concept of honoring the past while envisioning the future.
