We will start the Meetup with our usual Trivia session.
Tonight's Presentation: Japan
Presented by member: Richard Roberts
Japan offers many learning experiences, including ancient architecture, superfast trains, new foods and public hot baths. For western travelers, every day brings insights into a different culture and challenges to our traditional ways of thinking. This presentation by a couple, who spent 10 days in central Japan, will talk about visits to Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Kobe, Nara and several other locations which are largely unknown outside Japan. You will see temples, palaces, castles, gardens, hot springs, modern shopping , the countryside, geishas, fashions and even a pirate ship. As well, you will get a slice of day-to-day life in Japan and a peek at the ancient Japan of shoguns, samurai and monks.
See you there
I will be at the meeting place at 6:30 pm for those who wish to come early. Presentations will not begin before 7:10 pm.
