    I’ll be there by 2014. So far away but I’m spending the time saving my pocket money

    I am a blogger (kinda) who is currently in Japan right now, and will be for the next 2 years at least! I’m an English scientist who is here as part of my postgraduate research, living in the outskirts of Yokohama and trying not to die in an earthquake-induced laboratory accident.

    I blogged beforehand (mainly about food) but am still posting regularly. I’m also writing for a student paper with more “Life in Japan” stuff, which will be linked  to as and when it comes. Anyway, if any of y’all feel like giving me a read, my door is always open.

    I haven’t used textfugu for awhile because I can’t afford it right now, saving up for language school! Yay! Anyways, I did start a blog about my past trip and my upcoming one.

    It also has a facebook with added pictures and I post when I update the site.  ^_^

    Love reading others’ blogs – kind of envious that you got to go at New Years’. Where exactly are you going for your language school?

    I’d have to say, incidentally, that “Am I a girl or a boy?” is not a question that usually crosses my mind while I’m packing for a holiday. =P

    Ah, in that case, you need to try keiran soumen, and tell us how it tastes. =D

    *looks up what kerian soumen is* Certainly looks interesting! I will if I get a chance!

    Hello Cassandra,

    …it’s still not a blog, (I’ve always planned to set one up, but I’m still hesitating, ’cause I’d like to write it in English, but I’m no native speaker, and… so on :-)).

    But I have some fotos to offer – does that count, too?

    Great photos. I notice you climbed Mount Fuji – did you make it to the summit?

    no, we didn’t, we had to stay at 8. station, the last one before the summit (with the summit in view!), because I got mountain-sickness – that wasn’t really funny, but I found quite a lot of new friends there (those who were ill, too, and those who cared about us), and today I think, that was an experience worth to be made, even more than reaching the summit somehow…

    Joel, I just had a short visit at your blog, by now (I’ll come back, for sure!), and I saw, you made almost the same experience – we had the same idea like you, that it would be something like an afternoon-walk, but that wasn’t nice and easy at all, was it? :-) are you going to give it a new try? I’m almost sure, I won’t (but my husband would like to… oh, my…:-).

    The summit’s station number ten, so the eighth station isn’t quite the last one, but you still got further than me – I only got to the seventh station (though on a different path, I think). I’m not at all sure why I didn’t expect it to be at least a little more difficult – I mean, it’s literally uphill all the way. =) Though like you, we got to meet a few people only because we stopped there – we had dinner with a pair from Sapporo, and a woman gave me a pocket warmer the next morning after sunrise.

    As for going again for another attempt, I’m strongly tempted, but I’m not entirely sure…
