I'm in Japan and since I didn't have to much time to update I will gradually do that later. I will also include the details of obtaining a CA and visa, the flight options etc. Before that however I would like to share with you some personal details of my journey to Japan. More details can be found on my LJ.
So just as an introduction: first of all my original flight to London was cancelled due to the 'heavy' snow, so I had a one day delay. So my journey started on February 4th not 3rd.
So in the posts that follow a detailed account of my trip.
