Nine days in the Land of the Rising Sun
A Map of Our Journey
My good friend Mark and his family, who had spent nearly two years in Japan, graciously hosted us during our visit. Having people help familiarize us with some of the challenges we would face during our visit was a tremendous help. A special "Thanks" to them!
Mark, Traci, and Tom on the shinkansen (bullet train)
Another "Thanks" is in order for my brother Steve, who contributed some vouchers from Delta to help with the cost of our tickets! OK, I admit from the beginning that Jana wrote this journal,
so full credit, or blame, goes to her.
I did take some of the pictures though! (The really good ones.)

Your Lovely and Talented Host... Jana!
It's a long flipping way to Tokyo from Tennessee - an hour flight to Atlanta, five hours to Los Angeles, then a monsterously-long 12 more hours to Japan. If only it were that easy. To make a long journey even longer, the incident to which I am so obliquely referring is our cancelled flight from LA to Tokyo and subsequent rebooking on the same flight 24 hours later. Now, although we both certainly prefer a one-day delay in our trip to plunging into the ocean in a big ball of flames, we also would have preferred if Delta would have let us off the plane as it was sitting in the gate for four hours instead of making us sit there in a plane reaking of diesel fumes. And we also would have preferred not being given a different story as to the cause of the delay every half hour or so, such as the one where we were told a sensor was making the check-engine light come on, though we could easily look out the window and see mechanics dismantling the engine. And yes, surprisingly enough, we would also have preferred not being treated as a major inconvenience in the ticket agent's day.

We had some good luck right from the start of this trip: the pilot made an announcement that we would be arriving at Tokyo-Narita airport an hour ahead of schedule due to favorable weather conditions. We settled into our seats for the 10 (originally 11) hour trip. The exit row seats were really great - as much or more leg room than a seat in first class (but as narrow as a normal coach seat). We saw the problem with the window seat - it's right behind the door, which protrudes out in front of the window seat and takes away most of the leg room. In flight service was some of the best I have ever had in coach. The flight attendants were extremely nice and highly professional. They came around 6 or 7 times during the flight to serve drinks. One very pleasant FA, Yoshi, noticed we had our travel guides out and came over to recommend places to visit in Kyoto. One of the movies, The Thomas Crown Affair, was good. (We skipped the other, Bowfinger.) Even the food was fairly decent! One of the main reasons we made this trip was the low airfare: I had seen a post on FlyerTalk a couple weeks prior in which someone had mentioned that a Continental was offering the round trip to Japan for $256 ($200 plus taxes). A number of other people on FlyerTalk had also seen it and went, too. One of them, "letiole" (Sheri) was on our plane and we had a couple of nice visits during the ride. We had e-mailed each other prior to the trip, bet even so, I was really surprised when I was walking by her row and she asked if I was "dgolds" (my FlyerTalk handle) since both of us had had our seats reassigned. Turns out she recognized me because she had seen my pictures posted in the FlyerTalk Gallery!

A Brief Description

Steeped in centuries of Asian culture and history, Japan, an archipelago of 4 major and over 4,000 smaller islands, is a mostly mountainous country with only 15% of its land cultivable.
As a result of that shortage of land, its largest cities ring the coastline. The mammoth metropolis of Tokyo, and the other huge cities along the Pacific Ocean are home to most of its people.
After the atomic bombs fell on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and its obvious eventual defeat in World War II, Emperor Hirohito surrendered in 1945.
Japan recovered within two decades; becoming a staunch ally of the US, and completely revised their postwar consitution. They went so far as to limit the power of their emperor making it, as it is today, a ceremonial position.
Japan, within the blink-of-an-eye, ( it seems ) became one of the world's major economic forces; its high-quality automobiles and electronics cover the planet.
Visitors enjoy the fast-paced culture and excitement of Tokyo and Osaka, the rural coastal villages and wilderness areas, the winter wonderland of Sapporo, and most of all...the courteous and respectful Japanese people.

A Note for Customers in Japan . As of early August 2010, the Yen has almost reached a 15 year high against the US dollar. On Monday, August 2, 2010, the yen was trading at 86.4 JPY to the USD. At the current rate of exchange, a $100.00 purchase would cost 8,638 Japanese Yen. On top of the excellent rate of exchange situation, purchases over $300 receive a 10% discount (does not include items marked "Net"). A $300 purchase would be 23,328 Yen ($300 x .9 = $270 x 86.4 = 23,328 JPY). While actual consumer conversion rates will not be quite this favorable, the current situation does represent a good opportunity to take advantage of the strong Japanese Yen. Exchange rates can change quickly so please check them on the date of your transaction to understand the rate for that time. All Stamps are MNH, F-VF Minimum, Unless Otherwise Noted. Prices are in whole dollars. For example 10 means $10.00 US.

August 13, 1999 ( Heisei Design A red sun-disc centered on a white field The national flag of Japan is a white rectangular flag with a large red disk (representing the sun) in the center. This flag is officially called Nisshōki , "sun-mark flag") in Japanese, but is more commonly known as Hinomaru , "sun disc") The Nisshōki flag is designated as the national flag in Law Regarding the National Flag and National Anthem , which was promulgated and became effective on August 13, 1999. Although no earlier legislation had specified a national flag, the sun-disc flag had already become the de facto national flag of Japan. Two proclamations issued in 1870 by the Daijō-kan , the governmental body of the early Meiji Era, each had a provision for a design of the national flag. A sun-disc flag was adopted as the national flag for merchant ships under Proclamation No. 57 of Meiji 3 (issued on February 27, 1870), and as the national flag used by Navy under Proclamation No. 651 of Meiji 3 (issued on October 27, 1870). Use of the Hinomaru was severely restricted during the early years of the American occupation after , although restrictions were later relaxed.
