Spring is finally here!! Here in Maryland it has been very cold. Other parts of the USA are still very cold right now. But it reached 90F/32C today here.. It was a very hot and humid day. I felt like I was back in Tokyo.
Currently, one US Dollar can exchange for about 100 yen! This is the best exchange rate in a long time. When I went to Tokyo in 2011, it was at 82.
I want to go to Tokyo this year. I work for an airline now so I can travel standby for a very inexpensive fare.
I am concerned about flying to Japan standby right now due to the uncertainty in the DPRK. If in the rare chance that hostilities take place in Korea, many people may be flying through Tokyo to evacuate the region. Any passenger who pays for an airline seat gets priority over me.
I would like to come to Tokyo in September or October.. Hopefully, before the rainy and cold season starts.
Enjoy the sakura.. I miss my favorite city!!
