Homesick for Tokyo

How can one be homesick for a place where only three weeks were spent? Your feature on Tokyo and travel in Japan did just that. In October 1998, I spent three weeks in Japan as a part of the Fulbright Memorial Fund Teacher Program as a guest of the Japanese government visiting the schools and experiencing the culture of Japan. The descriptions of Shinjuku station were so right on that all of a sudden I was right there again. This was my first experience abroad but I can't imagine anywhere in the world where "a stranger in a strange land" would feel more welcome. The people are wonderful -- Japan is my recommendation for anyone looking for a destination abroad. It is truly a place where the ancient and the modern coexist and an experience that I'll always cherish!
