    Vacationing 2008

    By thomas | July 20, 2008

    Tomorrow my family and I are leaving for a little two week vacation to a place we’ve never been before.  That means I won’t be here.  Just letting you know so you won’t get upset if your comment isn’t approved in a timely fashion :).

    In the meantime, I have a favor to ask.  Right around the end of July and beginning of August, a whole new wave of foreigners will come to Japan: foreign exchange students, new JETs and others.  If any of these new visitors come to your neck of the woods, would you mind telling them about NihonHacks?  One of the reasons I started this site was to help newcomers to Japan.  The more people that know about the site, the more potential hacks and tips we’ll have to share with everyone else.   Thanks!

    Enjoy the rest of your summer and stay as safe as possible!

      Ugh I hate that time of year when all newbies come. You never know what you’re gonna get. And also the oldies leave.
      Anyways great site, I’ll definitely pass on the word.

      I send students to Japan for their study abroad as well as graduates for ALT positions. I’ve already told them about your website.
      Keep up the good work!

      @Neil, Peter and jturninpin: Thanks! I had a great vacation! Scandinavia was beautiful.

      @Fantim: I like it when the newbies come. Hearing their first impressions of Japan brings back memories of when I was a newbie.

      @Joshua: Thank you very much for spreading the word!
