Good morning, everyone! It's 8:04am (Tuesday 6/4) in Japan right now. Just wanted to let you know that I made it here safely. Thanks for all your well wishes. It was dark when I arrived in Nagoya last night, so I couldn't really see much on the ride to Hikone. But I woke up this morning and was pleasantly surprised to learn that I can see Hikone Castle from my room! All in all I'm still a little nervous about this whole experience, but I feel a lot more ready than I did yesterday. I'll do my best. 一生懸命がんばります！Pics soon to come (see link), more blog posts to follow later. Once again, thanks for your prayers and well wishes. God bless y'all!
