I'm moving to Tokyo tomorrow. Come 1:00 tomorrow I'll be sprawled back in my big shinkansen seat with a tasty bento and a tallboy of Asahi blowing sayonara kisses to Yamagata.
Moving in Japan: Today I sent one huge 40-ton suitcase, one medium 20-ton suitcase, and one medium box to be delivered to my Tokyo apartment by tomorrow night. It only cost me 3,600 fucking yen. $36! JAPAN I LOVE YOU. If you ever need to travel in Japan and you want your hands free, go on and make some sweet love to TAKKYUBIN.
Yesterday was ridiculously warm! I stepped outside without my parka for the first time in four months. I felt like a stone-ager leaving my winter cave. Someone took me to a supermarket with lots of imported foods and I ended up sitting in a sunny park in a fucking tee shirt crunching on dill pickles and drinking root beer. It was my best day in Yamagata. Perfect note to end on.
I don't know what my internet situation is down there so I hope you'll be okay without me for awhile. Wish me luck settling in and feel free to send me housewarming gifts.
