A Louis Vuitton Tokyo exhibition titled 'Volez, Voguez, Voyagez' showcases a number of Japanese cultural traditions that have influenced the luxury brand immensely.

A short video posted by the company narrates the surroundings of the 'Japan Room' and speaks to how Louis Vuitton draws from its influences for the craftsmanship of its products. The narrator of the video explains that the Louis Vuitton Tokyo exhibition is valuable to the people of Japan because they have a great appreciation for its products.

The Louis Vuitton Tokyo exhibition includes a small bonsai garden that holds select bags on pedestals that reflect a nature theme. The video goes on to explain that the brand is influenced by "certain Japanese design rules, Japanese tradition and something to do with the outdoors. It is a little more rural in feel if you like." Reserved guided tours of this Louis Vuitton Tokyo exhibition are open to the public for a limited time.
