Arrived in Kagoshima, via Tokyo Haneda. Tom met us at the airport and helped us to pick up the hire car. His command of Japanese amazed us. Everyone we met was smiley and helpful. We've never been bowed to so many times. In fact I can't remember ever being bowed to before!
Our wifi hotspot gadget doesn't seem to work. Whether that is just here in Fukiage, or something more general we have yet to work out.
