Winter Travels in Japan for Ambassador Hagerty and Family

Throughout the season, Ambassador Hagerty and his family have visited many parts of Japan. So far in 2018, they have visited a tourist favorite, Kanazawa, in Ishikawa Prefecture, the historic Shirakawa in Gifu Prefecture, snowy Hokkaido, and Hakone in Kanagawa Prefecture. The Hagertys have also visited places close to home, like the Toyo Bunko Museum and Library in Tokyo.

Along the way, Ambassador Hagerty has been tweeting his impressions. For example, he wrote:

We were all captivated by the outdoor sculptures at Hakone Open Air Museum! Very impressed by the combination of modern art and beautiful Hakone nature. #Hakone

The snow is spectacular in Hokkaido. Inspired by #TeamUSA, we’ve enjoyed great winter sports & beautiful scenery while touring a #WinterWonderland in Japan!
