i’ve always depended on the kindness of strangers

Well... No. Not at all. Not in the slightest. Not that I haven't appreciated the help of what we call "random acts of kindness," but I could get by fine without them. Still, it's amazing that you mention to people that you're gaijin, or you're going to be in Japan, and suddenly a veritable community of ex-pats springs forth from the ether. (Not that I was much of a "pat" in the first place, but that's really a discussion for another time.) So, if you're in some way interested in Japan, gaijin or not, post a comment. Let me know who you are and where your Web presence is, if you have one. Next time I update the "Other Voices" section, I'll toss in a bunch of new links.

    Hey, my sister and i are planning to go to school in Japan, Tokyo for a year in 2007. But I have to learn spanish first. We live in Las vegas, the melting pot of diverse language and culture. Still wondering how to get to japan without selling an arm and a leg. Working and scholarships do fine, can’t do much until 2007.
