The trip so far has been very productive in terms of genealogical research and we still have two more days to gather information in the Okayama region. But no trip would be complete without some sightseeing and hands-on activities. From making Bizen Yaki cups to fighting off samurai warriors to having tea in a traditional garden, there is much to see and do in this country which so easily blends the old with the new.
