Thanks to Code Sharing Agreements present everywhere nowadays we found ourselves in a JAL Japan Air Lines plane even though we had booked a Swissair flight. The 12 hour flight from Zurich went smoothly - except for the limited seat space intended to suit Asian passengers better than us.



Upon our arrival we tested right away if our notebook would work online as we didn`t want to let you wait for our reports. The technically advanced Japan offers a modem connection plug on almost every public phone - but it showed not very open-minded to German internet providers. We hope we won`t be mistaken for spys and arrested for endangering the national safety.

Taiphoon-warning in Japan: Nagoya is under water and Sendai / Matsushima are in acute danger too. Therefore we had to change our travel plans on short notice and go to the more dry South first, then to North.
