Bergen, Norway / Embark Ocean Adventurer

After a long day of travel and a quick night’s sleep, we began our first full day in Japan with the delicious breakfast of Kyoto’s Hotel Okura, which suitably blended East and West. From hash browns and French toast to smoked mackerel and creamed burdock root, there was something for every taste and degree of immersion into Japan. Thus fortified, we boarded our buses and set out to explore the cultural...
