Better Than Fair Service at Airports in Japan

Better Than Fair Service at Airports in Japan

People love to travel. I love to travel. Traveling is fun and it’s also a great way to learn and relieve stress…as long as you go on a good trip and you go along with people who don’t stress you out. Right? These days, traveling is easy to do and relatively cheap. Well, hold on, if I remember correctly, on one of my trips back home to the States recently, I ended up having to buy lunch at the airport because I was hungry. The only food served on the plane prior to my arrival from Utah to California was a sandwich which wasn’t very good and snack foods (more snack foods than healthy food e.g. bag of chips, candy bar and cookies). I ate half of the stuff and began to feel sick. When I got to LAX before getting my final flight back to Japan, I needed something healthy to eat. Unfortunately, I could not leave the area I was in unless I wanted to go back and go through the long line to have my body re-scanned and bags re-checked. I ended up having to pay $22.00, or thereabouts, for a sandwich that only had meat and cheese on it, another bag of chips that came with the sandwich and a thing of water. I was shocked. They charged 4 times what it would have cost outside in the real world. I could have gone to Ralph’s supermarket and bought a nicely made sandwich, chips and a drink for less than $5. Back here in Japan, anyone in the Kansai International Airport, foreign or domestic, gets...
Western Union Japan: Days 2 and 3

Western Union Japan: Days 2 and 3

Day 2 Again, I was unable to retrieve money sent to me via Western Union. This time the reason was because my name wa misspelled. Who misspelled it? According to the person sending me money, the Western Union representative that typed my name in the country where the money was being sent from did. The person sending me money knows how to spell my name. Unfortunately, no one caught the error until the day I went to get it. What upset me the most today was that the Western Union rep didn’t tell me my name was misspelled the other day when she checked my information. The only thing she did tell me was that I could not retrieve my money because I didn’t have my gaijin card. I have just spent another several hundred yen traveling from my home to the Western Union office. If I am able to get the money on my next visit, three times a charm, I will have spent ¥1980 just in transportation getting back and forth…not to mention the money I have spent because I have had to eat out. Day 3 Finally, I was able to get my money! I went into the Western Union booth, gave her the paperwork that I had filled out last time with today’s date scribbled in and my gaijin card. I needed no other identification. She very thoroughly checked the paperwork for what seemed like an eternity. I went to the toilet and came back. She counted out the money and gave it to me. Done! I imagine that Western Union Japan has had case...
