The Divine Winds or ‘Kamikaze’ according to Samurai legend twice saved Japan from Mongol invasion in the thirteenth century. The history of Japan is filled with stories of war and peace. We spent time in a few of the many museums and gardens in Tokyo to gain a basic understanding of the island nation’s history and culture.
