From time to time Yogyakarta has a special place for Indonesia, and even the world. To this day, Yogyakarta is a Special Region that is full of historical and philosophical meanings that are reflected in all kinds of cultural forms. This implied meaning originates from the Yogyakarta Palace (Kraton Yogyakarta) as a symbol of strong cultural life and the spearhead of preserving Javanese traditions, to the social culture of society and its civilization.
The life of the people of the Special Region of Yogyakarta at this time is clear evidence of a successful harmonization in the preservation of ancestral culture and heritage. This harmonization inspired Ambarrukmo to spread the existing Javanese values to the wider community. One way to make it happen is through The Gateway of Java – a gateway to understanding Java’s values.
The Gateway of Java is a media trip with a mission to introduce the relevance of Javanese noble values which are still beautifully engraved in people’s lives, through experiences that activate all five human senses. This activity has become an annual activity from Ambarrukmo. Ambarrukmo collaborated with several parties to create an unforgettable experience in Yogyakarta. Batik fabric craftsmen, stalls located in small alleys, artists, to tourism service providers can be involved in The Gateway of Java activities. Ambarrukmo also collaborated with Key Opinion Leaders to spread these Javanese values to the wider community. On this trip, KOL will follow the entire itinerary made to share the social and cultural experiences in Yogyakarta.
