Operation Visit Japan – August 2010 Report

It has now been eight months since Operation Visit Japan started in January of this year. Right on cue and just as pre-planed I have passed the 50% mark halfway through the operation. I’ve been experimenting a lot with my blog and working on ways to get in contact with readers and/or offering more ways to stay up to date with the happenings on Jamaipanese.com in anticipation of having a great experience in Japan.

My Youtube Channel has been revived and I have been brainstorming some ideas for future videos and ways to keep the videos interesting, so please subscribe to keep up to date. In other news I am looking forward to the second staging of the Jamaica Pegasus Tweetup in Kingston, I am still without a smartphone but that hasn’t stopped be from being an active tweeter so follow me! Now for the meaty part of the August report for Operation Visit Japan!

$60 dollars in donations via the Chipin widget plus my usual $100 savings from my monthly salary means that $160 has been added to the fund. Add that to the totals from January, February, March, April, May, June and July bring the grand total to $1610 or 54% of the $3000 goal!

The donation widget on my site got no attention in July but had a double dose of love in August. A huge thank you for those who have donated via the widget this past month and for those who are thinking about it or want to donate to Operation Visit Japan may use the Chipin widget embedded above or in the sidebar. If you don’t use paypal and want to donate some other way feel free to contact me and you and your blog or website (if you have one) can be listed here in the September 2010 report.

  1. Good luck, my friend. I’m now saving for too many things, I better not tell you :P But most of all, I’m trying to go back to Taipei end of year and find work there. So I need money for the air ticket first. And my girlfriend wants us to go to Japan next year, so I suppose I might be there around your time :) The only different thing is, it takes 3h from Taipei to Tokyo and cost less. So if I make it in Taipei, I’m sure I can see Tokyo pretty soon. Can’t wait for that :)

    1. I hope to hop over to Taiwan and a few other Asian countries in a future visit to Japan. Hope you find work in Taiwan, lets see how everything works out and if we will be able to be in Japan at the same time.

  2. Do you plan to visit Japan?
    I have little money so I can’t donate you.
    But, I can possibly give you some useful information.
    For example, Lodging in a hotel costs about 7000 yen on average, but it in a Manga-Kissa, Net-Cafe, Karaoke-Box costs about 3000 yen.
    If you wanna know about Japan, ask me. I’ll try to answer.
