Didn't really have any training today but a cell phone company came to do a presentation and a couple of the Assistant Language Teachers signed up including myself. The name off the Company is softbank which used to be Vodafone.
Before we can get a cell phone we have to get an alien registration card (gaijin card). As a mater of fact all forigners who come to Japan and wish to stay for more than 90 days need to get one.
All of us Language teachers also did our medical check ups to see if we are all ok. Some one told me that every one who visits Japan gets sick around January/February every year because that is the time when it gets crazy cold. I am so not looking forward to this. We also heard that if you are in a train and a female cries out "Chikan" and points at a man...He can be in biiig trouble. Its almost like rape she is saying. Japan is a very humble and conservative society even though "some of them" act very weird to foreigner whether you are black or white they dont care...as long as you are not Japanese some of them act strange to us.
Went to the train station in Narita with a couple of the Jamaicans and some other persons from the USA, England and Ireland.
