Take a photographic journey through Japan from the perspective of an American who was born and raised in Japan. Combining personal experiences with his original haiku, Steve Jensen shares will share his unique experiences with the nature, culture, and the people of Japan. You'll begin your journey in Karuizawa, a town in the foothills of the Japan Alps, make your way throughout the mountains and coasts of central Japan, until you leave the bustling city of Tokyo.
