Last pictures of Japan!

And so the trip comes to an end.

On Day 8 they took a ferry and a bus from Irako to Kyoto.  Pictures are a bit lacking here as Dr. Kwoun experienced motion sickness, so her photo-documentary skills were a bit challenged.  The ferry was outfitted to appear like a pirate ship.









Time constraints have kept me from adding the last remaining pictures until now, so here goes:

Following is a picture of our fearless travelers experiencing a meal of sushi.  As you can tell, the reaction was not universal.

Taylor Bell and Nijmeh Rapp's expressions are priceless!!!

After a good meal, it was traditional Japanese karaoke in a private room.

Near the end of their travels, our students experienced a traditional Japanese tea ceremony at Kodaji Temple.
