Past Review Memories Forever
I learned how different countries perceive America and how they perceive themselves. I was able to better understand how Japanese history and their society is affected by their history and geography. I was also able to clear up some misunderstandings I had about Japan. I thought the trip was very worthwhile. - Grand View University View Entire Review

Excursions can include experiences like the Gion Festival, Kabuki theater, Higashiyama temples, Golden Pavilion, zen temples and gardens, the Path of the Philosopher, Heian Jingu Shrine, Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, and Hushimi Inari Taisha.
