Celebrate Team GB’s success with these Japanese experiences

Vibrant cities, beautiful blossoms and amazing food. Japan is HOME to a unique culture and the promise of many adventures. No doubt, like me, many of you are wishing you had tickets to the Olympics and booked a trip of a lifetime.

With team GB smashing their medal targets, claiming 22 golds, 21 silvers and 22 bronze medals making a total of 65, they’ve equalled their performance as hosts back in 2012!

Whilst it’s not quite the same as being there, we appreciate that a taste of Japan, whether that’s food or otherwise, can be a truly special experience.

From a sushi class at HOME to a freakebana floral workshop, our talented HOMETAINERs offer Japanese experiences that will help you get ONE step closer without leaving HOME…

Freakebana Floral Workshop

HOMETAINERs Emmi and Silvia find inspiration in art, design, textiles and shape. Discovering freakebana was the next logical step in their creative, floral journey.
