    Hey Guys, lessons are going well so far - still at the daunted stage but having fun nevertheless!

    Just thought I'd give you the heads up that there are rumours about the Japanese Tourist Board giving away free flights to Japan (as part of an intiative to kickstart tourism after the tsunami/earthquake disasters)

    From looking at the official japanese tourist board website there is the following statment;

    "Recently a number of media outlets have publicized reports about Japan offering 10,000 free flights to foreigners. However, this initiative to be carried out from April 2012 onwards is still under examination for government budgetary approval and is at this moment undecided. "

    It might be worth keeping an eye on the tourist board website to see how you apply if/when the offer is opened up! Probably unlikely one of us will get 1 but might be worth a shot?
