Kon'nichiwa! Watashi wa Dakku san. Hajimemashite. Yosoko!

You're probably thinking, "What on earth are you saying in your title, man?"

"Hello! I am Dak. It is good to meet you. Welcome!"

Those will be the first words I will actually speak to my friend and her daughter when we meet them at the airport in approximately 22 hours from now. Then for the next 10 days, we will be immersed in learning about language, cooking and culture from both America and Japan. It is going to be a hell of an experience for my daughter and I, and hopefully for my friend and her daughter.

So I won't be here for a while, but I'll post stories of our experiences later. Until then....

Ganbaremasu! Ittekimasu. Ja!

(That means "I'll do my best! I'm leaving now. Later!" )

Dakku san -

Hope you, your friends and your daughter have an excellent time.

For a real culture shock, you need to take them to a humongous American buffet-style restaurant. LOL

I'm looking forward to hearing, oops...reading your stories.
