Six months in Japan; another review:
More or less a month ago I had my last exams for the winter semester; and the summer semester won't start until early April. What this means is that I have a lot of free time. :)
I've started to watch a lot of ドラマ and am currently in the midst of previously mentioned train trip along Osaka, Nagoya, Tokyo, Kyoto. For accommodation I decided to give couchsurfing a try (except for one night in a capsule hotel). So far it's been great — but I get the feeling that a 10 day trip with 5 different hosts is on the edge between 'fun to meet new people' and 'kind of exhausting'. :D
After the trip I'm expecting to have some extensive downtime to recharge. ^_^'
On to the next month!
