Hey everybody! After quite a bit of thinking I’ve decided to take a winter break from December 26th, 2011 until January 5th, 2012. This will give me a chance to rest my brain a bit, and come back even stronger next year. I will do a short post New Year’s Day to wish everybody season’s greetings, but this will be the first time that I will take a break and not fill in the gaps for the missing articles, but I think it’s a great idea. Please keep in mind that although I won’t be posting any new articles during that time, I will still respond to comments and questions should you have them, so please feel free to go and post on any of the articles you wish on the Japan Guy site. I’ll be around 🙂 . I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season.
