Armchair Travel Adventures
A Journey to Korea and Japan – presented by Seiji Kawamura. I visited South Korea for the first time this year. April brings the spectacular cherry trees in bloom. Seoul and Busan bring city excitement and are bustling, modern metropolitan areas. I found wonderful mountain hiking trails, colorful palaces, forts and temples. A visit to the DMZ and a chance to peek into North Korea. Next a visit to Japan and a 4-day Shinto Shrine pilgrimage trek to Kumano Kodo, just south of Kyoto. We hiked 10 miles each day and over 3,000 feet but enjoyed a nightly stay at Japanese Inns with hot springs.
Open to the Public.
