En route to Japan 2017

At the time this entry is posted, I will be en route to Japan with my wonderful wife (aka The Penpal for those who have been reading a while) and our 3 year old son. This is his first time to visit Japan, and his first time to meet his Japanese grandparents in person. It’s also the first time that The Penpal’s parents have had a 3 year old in their house since The Penpal was a child. Overall it should present some good blog material.

Blogging about my trip as it happens will put my overall story out of order (again), but you can always refer to the chronological list of all of my posts here.

For those who are sitting next to us on our long flight – my apologies in advance. We’re going to do our best to keep the little guy entertained. I will accept donations of sympathy beer once we land.

    How long are you staying in Japan? How long has it been since you’ve been here?

      We are in Japan for 16 days total. The last time we were here was July 2013, so we are overdue for a visit!

        Four years since your last visit. Not so long. My most recent visit to America was sixteen years ago! 😉

        Have you ever visited Tokyo?

        Sounds like you’re a lifer now!

        I love Tokyo, have had many fun adventures and still have only seen a fraction of the city. im not sure if we’re going to get there this trip but if you have some good non Disney recommendations for 3 year olds I might try to squeeze something in.

        Well, yeah. I have Permanent Resident visa and I plan to stay permanently. Japan has become home.

    I think I missed Part II, as it skipped from departure to Part III. Eagerly awaiting stories of your adventures!

      I got trigger happy on the “post” button last night and accidentally released part 3 before parts 1 and 2. Part 1 just went up 🙂
