I don't have time to post now, but I will be keeping you informed of:
1. My final preparations and experiences for the Shikoku Pilgrimage. I will be very thorough in this.
2. Self-sponsorship details. I have found little-to-no information about this online, so I'll be heading down to the immigration office this week and will recount my story.
3. The procedure involved in ending a standard contract with a Japanese eikaiwa.
4. A possible trip to Tottori to see the onsens and beaches.
