November 12, 2004 – So much rain!

It rained like crazy today. Seriously, it was a crazy amount of rain.

Due to heavy rain volumes, the Tokaido line was experiencing delays. Tokaido is the busiest line of the whole Japan Rail network, running from Tokyo to Kobe. I was lucky to get to work on time, but on the way home I had to wait at Mishima station for half an hour. In a country where you can literally set your watch by the train schedule, a 30 minute delay is a huge deal.

At home I dried out and spent a bunch of time on the internet. Now that I can connect in my room without having to go to the internet cafe, the novelty of the internet has worn off.

In other news, I am buying a plane ticket tomorrow so I can go home for Christmas. Woohoo!
