Headed to Kyoto


I hope to drink many bowls of tea over the next two weeks, while I'm in Japan!  I'm traveling with my Sensei and three other tea students to the heart of the Japanese tea world, Kyoto.  We'll visit the headquarters of the Urasenke school (of which we are affiliated), have tea and sweets as often as possible, take in the beauty of and pay our respects at temples (Buddhist) and shrines (Shinto), eat fabulous meals, enjoy Japanese gardens, visit museums and as the trip comes to a close, stay amidst the tea fields. I'm overflowing with excitement! I'll share photos here, a few while I'm traveling and more when I returned.  Please wish us safe travels!

Happy travels to you! I've always envisioned Kyoto as the quintessential Japanese city with its beautiful temples and cherry blossom trees (well, not in bloom now). One of my college roommates was from Kyoto.
You're going to have an amazing educational and cultural experience.
