*sings* East may be east, west may be west, but Tokyo's the town I love the best  
Okay, so figuring out the Japanese Rail system is like trying to do calculus whilst being chased through a zombie-infested cemetery by flaming poodles. But I think I've got it down.

Meredith's Itinerary:
7/25/06
3:30 AM- Wake up, shower, dress comfortably, panic.
4:00 AM- Load the car, have Sam drive me down to the airport. Continue quietly panicking and checking everything.
4:45 AM- Arrive at airport. Get tickets, check baggage, eat. Tearful goodbye.
6:00 AM- Depart Cinci for Dallas/Fort Worth
7:15 AM- Arrive at Dallas/Fort Worth. Find something to do that will kill a few hours.
11:45 AM- Leave Dallas/Fort Worth for Osaka Kansai Kukou.
***insert unbelievably long plane ride here***
3:35 PM (Japan Time)- Arrive at Kansai Airport.

--> Take Kansai Haruka Express to Shin Osaka Station. (less than an hour)
--> Take Tokaido Line Hikari Express to Mishima Station. (2 1/5 hour ride)

... hopefully, I'll be able to call Yoko-san from the train a few stops before Mishima. She said she'd pick me up at Mishima, and we'll drive up to the village together.

God, I hope I can pull this off. *crosses fingers* Traveling in America isn't so much my worry as reading the Kanji and making sure I buy the right tickets in Japan. I mean, I worry about safety issues in America-- pickpockets, dirty old men in trench coats, my baggage being lost... but I more worry about losing me in Japan.

It will work out. :) (Not that I don't understand, because I'm nervous about the timing and transfers and whatever for my trip, too. Heh.)

Best mental image ever.

Here's hoping both our trips are as stressless as possible, and that the timing/traffic gods look favorably upon us. ^_^

Best mental image ever.
That's how I feel, damn it! *giggles, winks*
