Land ho!! Such a glorious set of words after more than a week with only ocean in sight. And not just any land; Japan!The cold wind couldn’t drive us away from this incredible sight, as the sun rose over the beautiful land of the rising sun (called such by China for it‘s eastern location, and cast a magical glow upon the peak of Mt Fuji!The beauty continued in the form of kindness as we were welcomed into the harbor of Yokohama with Taiko. The sound of traditional Japanese drums and the smiles upon the faces of the musicians fueled our excitement for exploring this amazing country! Japan, here we come!
