Awaji Island, Japan

04/21/2018 - 04/26/2018

This trip was quick yet so full of new experiences. I visited for three short days in preparation for a year long fellowship I was employed in during 2018-2019. I was with UK, US, and Japanese horticulture students during the trip. This was my first time on the Asian continent and it was absolutely gorgeous. The way of life, culture, food, buildings, plants, and vibe was all around different and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The cuisine was pure seafood that was fresh and tasteful. The people were overly welcoming and kind to us. The island air was smooth and somewhat calming. The flora was bright and vibrant, with a hint of tropical climate.
