I (Per) was invited to m17n2000, the Fourth International Symposium on Multilingual Information Processing, in Tskukuba, Japan. I arrived Japan Thursday, March 23, 2000, and left Tuesday, March 28. On Monday March 27, I presented a talk on JEmacs.
Most nights I was the guest of Masatoshi Suwabe, who I had met when he visited San Francisco in December 1998. He lives in Kashiwa, a suburb North-East of Tokyo. I stayed one night at the Tsukuba Daiichi Hotel Epochal.
