Travelogue: Japan

Getting to know Tsuruta in a fun, fulfilling youth exchange

Rice fields, shrines, fireworks, museums, humidity, judo, shopping, convenience store food, meeting a famous dog, Pokémon, host families, Japanese hospitality and fire torches are just a few of the memories that come to mind when I think of the 11 day trip to Tsuruta, Japan, I and 15 others embarked on this past August.
