Design to Go—Kyoto and Tokyo

Design To Go

In this week's installment of Design To Go, Diane Burk travels to Kyoto and Tokyo in Japan. Kyoto is known for its Buddhist gardens and temples and its preservation of traditions from wooden houses to kaiseki dining and geisha entertainers. Tokyo is Japan's capital city and is world-renowned for its lively nightlife, many museums and blending of traditional and ultra-modern architectural styles.

This informal design blog began as I departed for a year-long, around-the-world trip in October 2016. As well as a personal gap year, this travel time allows me to take a professional design sabbatical, following more than 30 years as a Graphic Designer/Art Director in the museum design world. "Design To Go" is a casual record of my design-related findings on the road, likely to be eclectic, various and somewhat random. Some of the things I come across that stimulate my design thinking might be of interest to others. My goal is to return to San Francisco in October 2017 inspired with fresh perspectives and energized to restart my design career. In design, anything is possible!
