Our Flight to Japan
Friday, April, 28, 2006
Finally, our flight itinerary has been set. Above you will see the route we’ll take. Leaving from Dothan, Alabama on Sunday, April 30th at 7:25 am, we will fly first to Atlanta. From Atlanta, we’ll board a Delta flight at 9:22 am and fly non-stop to Tokyo’s Narita International Airport, arriving at 1:25 pm Tokyo time. That translates to a 14 hour plane ride with an 8-year-old and a 3-year-old! When we arrive in Tokyo we’ll have a 25 mile bus ride to our new home which will take us 2 to 3 hours. Yes, you read that correctly. It takes over 2 hours to travel the 25 miles to Camp Zama from the airport. Can’t you just hear it — “Are we there yet, Daddy?”
Interestingly, over the course of this flight, we’ll cross Canada, the Yukon Territory, Alaska, Russia and finally arrive in Japan.
