Japan: Summer 2004

A highlight was the side trip to Mt. Fuji and a hot springs resort. The gardens (in the background) were stunning.

The gang half-way up Mt. Fuji. We were be-friended by a shop owner (older gentleman in the center), who took great pride in showing us around and no small interest in Watanabe-sensei (far right). Also shown are, from left, Urabe-sensei, Nana, and Kawamoto-sensei.
One of the first things we did was visit Ueno Zoo. School was in session and rains threatened, so we had the zoo to ourselves.
