Experiencing Japan Through JENESYS 2.0: Warm Welcome

Winter has come and it was cold in Japan when we arrived at Narita but we received the warmest welcome from the JENESYS 2.0 program organizer, Kinki Nippon Tourist Co., Ltd. (KNT). As soon as we were done with immigration procedure and claimed our luggages, we assembled at the lobby and were given badges and name tags for our luggages. We were also given time to freshen up. Pretty young women in kimono gamely posed with us for photos.

We were the last batch of delegates to arrive for the day (New Zealand and Australia delegations arrived earlier in the day), and KNT had a bus ready for us. Miki-san, our tour guide, and Mami-san, our tour director, led us to the bus and in no time, we were on our way to Shinagawa Prince Hotel. From the airport to the hotel takes about an hour, and during the trip, Miki-san shared with us some information about Japan. She even had visual aids such as a map and photographs of Japanese food that made us anticipate the activities that we would have.
