    I got Summer in Japan

    Well folks, it looks like this summer may be my first opportunity for playtime in Japan. I will be in Japan all by myself from June 27 to August 25 until the rest of my family arrives. Anybody got any suggestions? Brian, still need some help with Koi-Bito?

    I'm going to start pumping you Japan travellers for some insider information. Aloha all.

    Carl:

    Good news...Good luck on this new adventure...Take an umbrella it'll be raining in June...

    When your wife and family get there, be sure that the AC is on in your home before you pick them up and make sure that any car you borrow has a working AC ...It'll be in the 90's with humidity at 80-90% .

    We moved to Japan in Aug. of 95...We took a bus from Narita to Tokyo then a train to our home...Only had to walk too sort blocks, I carrying the luggage and my wife just walking...She overheated during the 10 minute walk and almost fainted...Needless to say, Tokyo is hell on earth during August...

    But you're young and you'll love it...

    Aloha! Mike

    I'm jealous. Hope you have lots of days off to see what you can during the growing season. ...Reports on everything are mandatory.

    Ichiro on the seattle Mariners Team T shirt is an always popular traveling gift.

    There are some wonderful bonsai nurseries to see as well as gardens.

    You know you will be expected to post dialog and pictures of your trip during your adventure to help those suffering left behind!

    Don't forget to hike up to the top of Mount Fuji and watch the sunrise. It is a very easy hike.

    I'm not one to turn away a willing hand!

    Seriously, it's going to be much hotter here in the summer than you're accustomed to in Hawaii. You'll also find that many people are adverse to air-conditioning, so that may take a bit of getting used to as well.

    Will you have to ride the trains, or will you be getting a car? They both have their respective advantages and disadvantages around Tokyo. Hope your a "people" person, as you'll be sharing the city with 12,000,000 of your closest friends.
