Armchair Travel Adventures
A Journey to Korea and Japan – presented by Seiji Kawamura – This April, I went to South Korea (first time) – exciting culinary delights, hiking trails and a chance to visit the DMZ and peek into North Korea. In Japan, a four-day pilgrimage to Shinto shrines was fascinating, although we hiked over 3,000 feet and 10 miles each day. Staying nightly at Japanese Inns with hot springs was our end-of-the-day reward! Open to the Public – Everyone is Welcome.
