(This is Ken and Alex's Excellent Adventure in Japan - our first overseas trip together and it started in Tokyo. The next couple of weeks I plan to post my sketches from this trip.)
My son, Alex, has wanted to go to Japan for a long time - at least since he was 4 or 5. So, when the opportunity came along for us to travel it was the obvious first choice for our first overseas trip. I had been on a couple of tours with Gap Adventures - Thailand and Ecuador - so when I found a tour that was featuring Temples, Castles, and Hot Springs I signed us up for it. The trip we took follows along with this itinerary from Gap.
