The itinerary was fabulous. It was a great mixture of cultural experiences, the joys of nature (especially the cherry blossoms), insights into Japanese food (making sushi, wasabi farm, sake factory), Japanese crafts and art (paper-making and kimonos). We particularly appreciated the chance to visit Hiroshima. The talk by the Survivor was really interesting and moving. It was nice that it included some more international things like the fabulous sculpture park.
