Day one was fantastic! We were able to learn about traditional Japanese customs as well as the everyday habits of the Japanese people. I am so amazed by the amount of respect and politeness the people here have shown us. Hygiene is extremely important here (which I love), everything is immaculate and clean here in Japan! The cultural workshops we were able to participate in today were all amazing, I especially enjoyed the Taiko drum session and the calligraphy workshop!

My favourite part of the tour so far has been trying all of the different foods that they eat here. Sukiyaki was probably the most delicious thing I have tasted in my life! Sukiyaki was beef which was a nice change up from the fish and sea life we have been eating so much of! The fish tastes different as well, it's so much fresher here than at home! We also tried octopus and oyster pudding which was definitely worth trying, but I can't say that it was my favourite! The humidity here is crazy, its usually about +20 and about 40% humidity, but in retrospect it beats the snow! Loving Japan!
