We have been in Japan for about five days now and it has been great so far. The days are jam-packed with activities that I hardly have time to blog about it.
We went on an amazing tour a few days ago where we visited the Kyoto Imperial Palace, the Nijo Castle (Nijo-jo were the Shogun would stay), Sanjusangen-do temple, we also visited many other places. Yesterday we visited the Kobe Police Headquarters were I got the opportunity to assist in a demonstration of Japanese Police jujitsu. After a day of learning and working up an appetite our professor treated us to a Kobe steak in Kobe (I have to say that was the best steak I have ever eaten). The people are great here, very helpful and very nice.
Today is a day off were we are relaxing and trying to catch up on some homework for the University of Charleston.
