Hi! It’s me! Lily!
Today was a quiet day. We went to the Japanese immigration office to see if they had any records of who I was, or what name my fingerprint was previously attached to.
I’m glad Emiko was there, because everyone was so confused!!!
We went up to the window, and said something like “Good morning, I lost all my memories, but they told me at the airport that you might have a name that my fingerprint was attached to?”
I got a blank look. We tried several different ways to ask, and then they got their boss, and we asked them as well, and finally someone took us into an office, and there was a lot of Japanese that was well above my skill level. But finally, after about a half hour of Emiko and the bereaucrat politely arguing, he said “oh, wakarimasu! Wakarimasu!” Then there was a little more back and forth, and after filling out a form or two and a bunch of polite bowing, we left.
Emiko told me that she tried about ten different ways of explaining what was going on, until the light bulb went on. He said he doesn’t know if they have the information, but if they do they’ll send it to me, it will take them a little while to look it up. I guess that’s the best I can hope for.
Tonight we had a very nice dinner at a very nice place to eat, and my tummy is full now. I’m probably not going to eat a whole lot tomorrow, you know, plane and everything, but it’s a nice way to leave Japan. I had so much fun here. I learned so much about myself, made a few friends, and… and I’ll miss it. I hope I can come back soon.
I’ll probably post from the airport tomorrow afternoon, but I’ll be flying at my usual posting time, so I’ll post again when I’m home!
