I've arrived in Japan safely!
It's been nearly 24 hours but I have finally arrived in Tokyo!
A big thank you to Paul for accompnaying me all the way to the airport early on Saturday morning to send me off!!!
We are staying at the KEIO Plaza Hotel which is in the Shinjuku area of Tokyo. Unfortunately, I didn't have time (or the foresight) to exchange any money before I left the US, so here I am, pathetic and hungry in my hotel room. I wandered around for awhile and got a little overwhelmed by all the shops and lights and sounds and people and the cars on the opposite side.... I'm sure when I get to Miyazu, things will be a lot different.
Well, a few more days in Tokyo and then off to Kyoto-Fu on the bullet train! Once I arrive at my new apartment, I'll have to update you all and tell you the best way to come and visit.
Till then, thanks for all the support and love!
