About Our Host
Jim – Jim’s business is in Southern California but he has to travel internationally on occasion. When he found out about all the great adventures Noodles and Sam have been on he invited them to go with him on his next one. We met Jim and his sister Carol before the adventure to Japan and planned our trip. They were great hosts but even better friends.
We had a great adventure in Kyoto, Japan. This city is beautiful and filled with many exciting things to see. Part of the city is very old but the other part is a very busy city with many international businesses. Many people there use the bullet train to travel. The bullet train goes very fast at a speed of up to 185 mph. We thought that there would only be Japanese food to eat, but we were surprised. There were many different types of food to eat. We discovered that there was everything from traditional Japanese food to even McDonalds. While we were there we met many different people. They were all really nice and friendly. When we met the school kids there they told us that among learning math and reading they also are responsible for cleaning their classrooms. They also learn how to cook and sew in class. We thought that was really cool. Kyoto, Japan was an amazing place and we can’t wait to go back. N & S
