Goodbye Tokyo, Hello Hikone
Something am going to infer about Japan without even going, just from the application process at Nihon Daigaku in Tokyo, is that in Japan when they say due by April they mean due by February. As you can tell from the dates on the entries, I didn't go to Tokyo this summer. While I had my application in by the deadline for the summer (by a month), apparently everyone else had theirs in by at least three months, so I did not get to go. I had a great summer anyway, and now once again ramping up to go, but this time to Hikone instead of Tokyo. A very large difference in the sizes of these two cities, so it looks like I'll be riding along on a bike instead of crowding onto a subway everyday. Either way, I'm really excited and now I can start the blogging again. More posts to come while I get ready to roll!
