A week in Japan

A week in Japan

Edward Popham spent the July school holidays in Japan. He won a one week trip from gaining first place in a national calligraphy/haiku poetry competition last year. Edward stayed with two host families near Tokyo and visited many hotspots of Tokyo such as the Tsukiji fish market, the Meiji shrine and Disneyland.  Edward extended his stay by another week to allow him to meet up with both his Grandmother who lives near Tokyo and his host family down in the south of Japan from when he spent 5 months there on a scholarship in 2012.   When asked about his trip, Edward said "The food is beautiful, the people are wonderful and I love the Japanese baths."
