Off to Japan (soon)

I leave tomorrow morning for Japan to visit with family for ten days. I'm looking forward to spending time with my 100-year-old grandma and many aunts and cousins. My cousins are looking forward to spending time with me because it means that my aunts will break out the extra beer. My aunts may try to make up stage names for me; I believe that last one was a pun on poop, but not everything gets translated for me.

Four years is too long to have been away. Except for the fact that the country is designed for people a foot shorter than I, I am more comfortable with the streets, shops, and density there. There's always something to entertain and to explore (hidden stairways, alleys) and vending machines full of tasty refreshment are always just around the corner.

I'm not sure what the plan is just yet; most of the time I'll be in Sasebo but I'll probably make it over to Nagasaki for some sightseeing. There's a longshot chance I'll end up in Okinawa for a day or two to visit my old haunts and sit on the beach, but logistics make that one difficult.
