The Historic Preservation Institute at the UWM School of Architecture and Urban Planning offers this 3-credit program in Japan. The program focuses on historic preservation as well as explores current urban, building and landscape design matters. The group will conduct an in-depth examination of a country struggling to maintain its historic cultural identity in the midst of overwhelming social and technological change. The program will focus on the two main urban centers in Japan – Tokyo and Osaka. Participants will visit Japan's ancient castles and palaces, tatami-mat tea rooms and Zen gardens, Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples, as well as the latest shopping centers, sports facilities, residential complexes, office towers, and high-tech structures. The group will view presentation methods and fresh technologies not yet in use anywhere else and learn about new materials and solutions to problems like space, parking, safety, and historic preservation.
