    This experience is the best thing I did in Japan by far!

    This experience is the best thing I did in Japan by far!
    I was a bit skeptical at first to be able to do any of that, but the teacher is really good. He explained progressively complex movements until we really had a little scene. The video looks awesome. The interpreter took it with his iPhone and gave it to me on the spot. He was very good too, always at a good place right at a good time. This is a really fun experience and a great memory. Thanks!See moreSee less
