Propel Studio spent a couple of weeks in Japan in October to check in on our project in Aridagawa, as well as give presentations about our community work and design process. It was a whirlwind tour of the country, and in only two weeks we visited Tokyo, Kanazawa, Nanto, Wakayama, Kyoto, Aridagawa, Osaka, Okayama, and Naoshima. It was a lot of moving around with the help of the country's incredible train system.
Although this was a work trip, we also were able to visit a lot of architecture, cultural attractions, and some beautiful landscapes. We each documented our trip in different ways to learn from our travels and inspire future designs. Below is a slideshow with images of textures and details of the places we visited along the way.
