First Stop: Seoul, South Korea

First Stop: Seoul, South Korea

The Punahou Gold Intermediate Baseball Team and some of their siblings are about to board the flight to Seoul Incheon International Airport.


10 hours later at Incheon: A shuttle train from the airport terminal to the baggage claim may not sound exciting, but it took a lot of effort (and a lot of time) to get 60+ people to this point.


At the hotel in Seoul, parent Keith Amemiya has been our fearless leader and jokes, "I may have a second calling as a tour guide."


We arrived at the hotel around 6 p.m. (11 p.m. Hawaii time). While some ventured out for a dinner in Seoul, I opted to sleep after the long day.


We leave for Sendai this morning. Follow @honolulumag (or the hashtag #honolulu2sendai on Instagram for live updates.)
