Flurry of activity continued today. Left home before 9am, hoping to get back soon, since it is almost midnight. Tomorrow begins with a morning trip up to Yokkaichi to ask permission to return to Japan.
Re-entry permits always give me a kick in the pants. If someone is given resident status and is allowed to rent a home, why should they need additional permission to leave and come back?
My last re-entry permit expired with my previous visa, so I need to request a new one. Fortunately, the timing works out well this time and it should be valid into 2012 for multiple entry.
