Experience in Japan


The Travel for Teens Japan trip was an excellent experience. We spent a lot of time traveling around the entire country, so we got a very good view of the culture throughout Japan. The trip counselors were organized and prepared for anything that might happen. Some of the best days of the trip included the community service in a Tono, which is relatively unknown to many Japanese people. We had a great time speaking with Japanese people and working with them to clear a pumpkin patch. Another day we got to visit school children and work with them in their environment. We also got to have many experiences to bond with every member of the group in activities. We also visited many temples and shrines with our Japanese tour guide, who was excellent. Our group tried many new foods and got to experience a lot of typical Japanese events, such as our visit to a local fish market. Overall, my trip to Japan was a wonderful time and I highly recommend Travel for Teens and this specific trip to anyone willing to travel.

How can this program be improved?
If anything, I would like to have spent some more time volunteering but all of the activities we did were great.
