So in about two months I will be leaving from the U.S. to study abroad in Akita Japan for about six months Aug-Dec. I am very much looking for tips tricks and advice in regards to this venture as it will be a first for me on many levels. This will be the furthest I've ever been away from home, it will be my first time abroad and it will be the longest I'll have ever been away from home. So I am looking for advice regarding both Vanilla things as well as little/diaper related things. I intend to bring a pacifier and one maybe two plushies as well as some diapers. My question is though are diapers readily available in Japan? Where should I look? What is the buying process like there? I'm also just looking for basic day to day life advice on how to get the most of the venture and tips on culture. I'm really freaking excited and very very very nervous.
