From savoring the best sushi the world has to offer, to taking a step back in time during a traditional tea ceremony, a visit to Japan engages all senses. For over eight years Scott Cooper, co-owner and CEO of MEJDI Tours, has been traveling to Japan. He has built relationships across the country with Buddhist and Shinto Priests, a growing network of younger Japanese social entrepreneurs, dozens of local universities, and even the curator of TEDxKyoto. What does this mean for you? An opportunity to get off the beaten, often overcrowded path and create a positive impact as you enjoy Japan like a local!
