You may have noticed all the empty blog posts recently added and they probably seem pointless, especially since we don't have to make them public till we feel like it (like, when we've actually added content). However, life around here has been all about Japan and, while it's not especially interesting, we thought it'd be a good way to kind of hold ourselves accountable and give our many adoring fans (hi mom!) an idea of what we plan to tell you about how/what we've been planning the past couple months. Also, finding travel guide-type things that seem to be aimed at people like US are very hard to find...so, maybe, some other 30-somethings will happen to find this blog someday and find it incredibly useful (that'd be even more likely if I ever got around to writing the "About Us" stuff, I suppose.) Anyway, it's what we have. Enjoy.
