Japan has always held a huge fascination for me, and has been one of the places that I knew would be home to a killer re:charge session. The recent scouting mission reinforced my feelings 1000 fold. The food, the culture, the technology and the connection to nature make Japan a truly ideal destination for those of us dedicated to exploration. Training with Karate masters in the world famous Budokan, learning the art of swordsmanship from the descendants of Samurai, and amazing culinary experiences in Tokyo. Soaking well-worked muscles, hanging with snow monkeys and hot-spring hopping in Shibu Onsen, a 1,300 year old mountain resort town. The crowning experience will be a hike up the iconic Mt. Fuji. There is no doubt that Japan will be an epic place for us to share with all you argonauts out there!
