As Americans, we were afraid that our visit with our Japanese friends might have been awkward as we were planning to revisit our nations' shared history, and we were unsure of what reaction their young daughter might have, but this visit was (as advertised) a peaceful, educational experience. We were surprised by how much their young daughter already knew about... More
