Sapporo–This is the last entry I will likely be writing from Japan. Tomorrow, Jason and I will be leaving from Chitose airport at 12:20 PM, changing planes at Nagoya at around 3:30 PM, and arriving at SFO at 9:30 AM that same day.
My internal clock is going to be begging for mercy when this is all over. Regardless of whether I’m able to sleep on the plane or not, I’ll probably spend the entire day Wednesday watching television.
American television. In English.
I’ll have more to say about my trip to Japan a few days after I return, I think. By then I will have had more time to reflect on what this trip has meant to me, about the places I’ve seen and the people I’ve met, about the differences between America and Japan.
About why I want to come back here, perhaps. It may be that, upon returning, I won’t like what I see.
Farewell, Japan. Hello, California sunshine.
