i called up japan airlines here at work (we’re dead slow at the kiosk), and
i was able to find info on getting a japan rail pass. they faxed me these
forms, i filled them out, selected “next-day delivery”, and faxed them back.
so, in a day or two, i should have my japan rail pass, so i can travel all
over japan! ^_^
we got the hook-up on free pretzels here at the mall now, too. yummy!
