Japan Photo Essay

Japan is a country that I can’t wait to visit and have had on my list since I was a little girl. I grew up with Japanese students in my home and hearing all about the wonderful places to visit.  Ammon and Sasha just returned from a visit to Japan and were lucky enough to reunite with a couple of our favorite students.

Ammon gives his short comment for us and some of their photos to enjoy.

“Sasha and I loved Japan. It easily wins for cleanest country I have ever visited. It was also organized, friendly and was easier to get around than we expected. From beautiful nature to historic temples to the crush of the crowds of Tokyo it’s a country that has it all. Don’t even get me started on the food, it’s just so good. We can’t wait to visit again.”
