If you wanna know, I haven’t left Japan or given blogging on Big Sushi, Little Fishes or anything. This year, instead of our usual spring trip to somewhere in Japan (Kanazawa, for example, or Ishigaki-jima), R. and I are headed to Iceland – home of Bjork, Sigur Ros, and fermented shark meat. In fact, we haven’t even left yet but I’ve already started posting about the trip on my other blog, Exit Booted. You can follow our preparations and adventures there! Takk! (“thanks,” in Icelandic).
The headline says it all: to stimulate tourism to Japan, after what Paul Theroux calls Japan’s disaster-by-installments of earthquake, tsunami, nuclear crisis, meltdown, PLUS a strong yen, the Japanese government is planning to give away 10,000 free flights to Japan.
The catch? You have to write about your experiences to help promote Japan as a tourist destination.

Lemme know you’re coming and you can crash on my couch.
