    Hi Blog.  This is just to tell you that I will be vacationing until April 2011, so that I can concentrate on writing my next book.

    Sorry about this, but the Blog takes about an hour or more out of my day every day and as such is a major time bandit.  Same with reading and approving every comment.  So let me just say ja shitakke ne for a little while.

    I will of course still put up podcasts and my Japan Times JUST BE CAUSE columns the day after they come out.  But comments and the like will take a while to approved, as will answers to emails to me directly.

    Please be patient.  As always, thanks for reading and commenting to  See you again in April.  Arudou Debito

      Debito, why don’t you join a blog ring for next couple months, and direct your traffic to those sites.

      People obviously hit here because they want to see what you have to say. But the other people’s comments are, almost as a rule, very interesting too.
