In less than tweleve hours I'll be making my way through the joy that is airport security enroute to Japan-- not as a JET or an expat, but simply as a tourist...

Does this mean you're taking a trip to Japan or are you moving there long-term? Whatever the answer, have a great time and enjoy the geiko in autumn!

I think the term for that is not "tourist", but "junkie".

WV: tkyiohk.

The word tkyiohk is a little like EI-EI-OH only for Japan junkies. The 'k' at the end is for humor. It's pronounced: Toh-kee-(slight pause) eOHk (like a donkey would say it).

Hi Melissa. It's Chris. We met twice, briefly, in Kyoto (Kitano Odori & Miyako Odori). When I finally get around to contacting you, you're back in Japan! Are you able to reply to this comment? Hope to be able to reach you someday. Take care.

Hi Melissa, This is Kyoko Kohno in Akechi-cho, Ena. Do you remember me? We met on the flight on your way back and my way to USA. You have already been in Japan again. Are you going to come to Ena?
