I’ve been wanting to go to Japan for a while now, its just that I haven’t gotten any of my friends to really commit to going. So about 6 months ago, I decided that I was going to go by myself. After thinking about it, it really is the best way to visit Japan for the first time. I can allow myself to be totally immersed without having someone from my country bring me back to ‘feeling American’ every 5 minutes. I am really glad that I have this opportunity to visit this great country. I’ve been here 5 days now, and I almost feel like I live here.
To share my experiences, I’ve documented everything possible (mostly food) so future prospective-visitors can learn from my time here.

I went in to have an operation on my foot today, and they gave me full-on anesthesia. So as I type this, I have the common haziness that is associated with prescribed drugs (oxycodone too). My foot is throbbing though. O yeah, the purpose of this blog is so I can A) speak my mind and B) write detailed instructions/findings about Linux/Asterisk/VoIP/MySQL/PHP projects I have been involved in. So I look forward sharing everything I can with the Open-Source community in the near future.
