Our family loved our trip to Japan! During the month we stayed we traveled between Hiroshima, Kyoto, Tokyo Disney Resort and wrapped up our trip in the most populated city in the world – Tokyo! This country has everything including rich history, gorgeous geography, religious shrines and temples, vibrant downtown cities and is full of life and Japanese culture.
One day as we were riding the local train in Kyoto, a woman in her late 70’s boarded the train with a tour group of similar people. She sat down next to us and struck up a conversation. She said she’d always wanted to travel, and always wanted to come to Japan, but, “she’d never have thought to bring kids here!”
