Only about 23 years. Piece o' cake:
1. You're likely to be the only "100% literate" in the office
(unless there's somebody there from the UK ;>)
2. Most signs over here are in "English": "Safety Driver Tokyo",
"Do not entry unless in case of emergency." "Back mirror images
unexpectedly near." that sort of thing.
3. If you have specific questions, drop me an email.
4. If you have trouble while you're here, give me a jingle:
Office: 0468-76-1250
Fax: 0468-75-9317
