The greatest twentieth-century Japanese print collection in the world from 1910-1950, outside Japan.

Holland is famous for having a coffee and biking “koffie drinken & fietsen”.  We will meet in a special ambiance where these two worlds are combined. The place to enjoy our early morning coffee & stroopwafel and meet our new friends for the day.

Round the corner we will visit a private collection of Japanese prints, which is regarded as the greatest twentieth-century collection in the world from 1910-1950, outside Japan. Exhibited in a private museum, where a touch of Japan is felt in every corner. An impressive 17th century Amsterdam canal house houses a collection of 1,800 prints, illustrated books and albums as well as an impressive Samurai statue and an original tatami-room. The owner will give us an animated lecture about the collection.

After this we will embark on a private small open boat to sail to the lunch venue along the Amsterdam canal ring, which is recognised as  UNESCO world heritage site.

Our local host is proud to receive you on his houseboat. A hidden secret on the river Amstel. In line with the theme of the day he will serve you a mouth watering sushi lunch. Sushi is the most famous Japanese dish outside Japan, and one of the most popular dishes among the Japanese themselves. Sushi is usually enjoyed on special occasions. That is why!

Are you ready for a trip to one of the hidden treasures of Amsterdam?
