So in about 24 hours I am taking an 11 hour flight from San Francisco Airport to Tokyo Haneda Airport. I am going to be studying abroad at Yokohama National University for about 10 months. Its finally starting to hit me I am going to be gone for so long. Dont know what to expect, Dont know what to think. What is life?

p.s. tips on packing and general suggestions and comments welcomed!


Don't forget why you're there, and not here. Resist the urge to hit the nearest Gaijin hotspot to reclaim a comfort zone; stay outside the box, embrace everything, and everyone with welcoming arms, it'll be a wonderful experience!

GOOD LUCK, MY FRIEND! STUDY HARD!

If you run into any aliens, witches, shape-shifters or loli-tengus-bent-on-world-domination, just relax, the giant robots will take care of them.

Have fun, immerse yourself into the history and culture. One of my friends (who knows 4 languages and is going on to her 5th), went to Japan recently (since she took a class for 4 years) with her sensei and some classmates, and her pics made me super jealous. Also enjoy the nature, it's so beautiful! Super jealous of you people...

Be aware of racists over there. One time, some European guy who just went over there for sightseeing was shunned by some locals in like Tokyo or Osaka, thinking he's another dumb weeaboo and could not even enjoy his trip there. He also blamed that on non-Japanese folk getting too entralled with anime. Other than latent racists and xenophobes, have a great trip.
