Wow, the end of April already and 1/3 of the year is gone??!! You had better start planning your fall and winter vacations now! 

DESTINATION SPOTLIGHT: Tokyo Japan. Food: No food is more closely associated with Japan than sushi, making it a must during your visit. Japanese food presentation is one of the most visually impressive in the world, and a plate of impeccably prepared sushi is no exception. You will need to know the difference between sushi and sashimi: Sushi is prepared with cooked short-grain rice (the word "sushi" actually refers to the rice), and sashimi is unadorned slices of raw fish, typically served with a side of shredded daikon. Freshness is paramount for both dishes. According to locals, the quality of a sushi shop can be gauged by how crowded it is, so stay away from places that are nearly empty. You won't find fresher fish than that sold at the sushi shops around the Tsukiji fish market. They're a good value too, although few stay open after lunch, and they're closed on days when the market is closed.

UPSCALE EXCURSIONS: Today is our escorted group travel program's spring travel show. We will be unveiling several new adventures for fall of 2017 and early 2018. It may not be too late for you to attend either the 12:30 or 3:30 pm presentation but call 330-966-2252 to RSVP.

DESTINATION SPOTLIGHT - Seattle Washington - Weather:

Seattle is proof that the phrase "good weather" is a matter of perspective. Outdoor activities continue all year long, despite the cloud cover. Summers are cool and usually dry. Though high temperatures average in the mid-70s F/24 C, occasional August days reach near 90 F/32 C. Nights can be cool, so take a sweater or jacket.
Winters are drizzly and overcast but not harsh. January temperatures run 35-45 F/3-8 C. Any snow that falls typically does not last (although when it does, the entire city shuts down). It may occasionally rain hard in Seattle November-February, but a steady mist is more common. (It's usually accompanied by thick clouds that can hide the spectacular mountain scenery for days and, sometimes, weeks at a time.) Don't complain about the weather. Seattle's mild climate ranks 44th for rainfall among major U.S. cities.

No matter when you visit, pack a raincoat and rain hat--umbrellas are not considered trendy and are useless when the wind is blowing. The most popular months for tourists are May-August, but the city is even more beautiful when the leaves change color in the fall. The mild weather, sans crowds, is perfect for hiking, river rafting, mountaineering and other sports.
