The Japan workshops are among the most productive workshops we have ever had the pleasure of hosting. Our guide is second to none, our accomadations and meals the best available. This is a glitch free trip from start to finish. All participants stated the workshop exceeded every expectation and I am greatly looking forward to returning for the 4th time in 2014.
