Time Difference

Just to let you know, the time difference between USA (PST) and Japan is +16 hours given daylight savings time; basically that means that they are 8 hours back and one day ahead. I will be living the future TODAY!!!!


Also, for your dialing pleasure, Japan's country code is +81.

The Blog is Open!

Hi all,

Ben Whaley's Spring / Summer 2006 Japan blog is now officially open! I will be leaving for Japan on April 5th, where I will have two weeks of vacation time with my Mom and Roger until my OSP program starts. We'll be in Tokyo for a week and then head up to Sapporo (in Hokkaido) for a week.

I also recently signed up for my Kyoto classes:

Japan in Contemporary International Affairs
Religion and Japanese Culture
Advanced Japanese
Individual Research (for my thesis on Takarazuka-Kageki)
