No proper post today. I think you can forgive us on Christmas day :)
If you're in Japan, I hope you don't have work tomorrow! Treat yourselves to something nice, like a nenkyu, if you do.
Thanks to all of you who have supported us with your views and comments since last xmas. AccessJ is growing more rapidly than we ever could have expected. We'll carry on trying to make Japan an easier place for English-speakers to live until next xmas and beyond.
See you tomorrow for our regular scheduled post (about the internet in Leo-Palace apartments if memory serves correctly).
