Little James and Susie travel to Asia to visit the country of Japan! The Globe lands them in Shibuya crossing in the center of Tokyo. Little James and Susie visit famous temples and shrines. Then they visit Kyoto where they admire the shops, zen gardens, and bamboo forest, and they eat a delicious meal of ramen and sushi. They then head to Nara where they enjoy the wild but tame deer population. They are able to pet, feed, and interact with the deer. James and Susie are already having so much fun when they witness a mochi-pounding show! They watch how mochi, a traditional Japanese dessert, is made. It is made by two men who hit the dough repeatedly with large hammers. When it’s done James and Susie taste their mochi and are delighted by how unique and yummy it is. They end their journey with the breathtaking site of Mt. Fuji, a large and still active volcano. They also learn some words in Japanese throughout their adventure.
