Wow, thanks Jacqui, I really appreciate your help, you have been so attentive, thank you so much, having your guidance really helps take the stress out of my situation. I would recommend to anyone to use a travel agent for this kind of thing, doing it yourself is just asking for hassle!
Thanks also for the tip on Echigo Yuzawa, I had also contemplated doing that. We’ll see what the weather is doing, and put it on the list of things to do.
Heard it was hot at home, hard for me to imagine! But i’m halfway through now, so I’ll be back in shorts and tshirt soon enough.
Ja ne, tabi tabi sumimasen deshita.
Honto ni iro iro arigato!
