Summer in Japan

It was cloudy morning in Narita International Airport when my 7 hours flight
with Japan Airlines arrives in Japan’s second busiest airport.
“Welcome to Japan” an airport officer friendly talk to me. This is my
first visit, and as ever told to us before, the temperature is not too
cool. Japan was on late spring at June, the time when “sakura” ending
it’s blossom. It mean my first wish was fail to bring sakura to my
lovely wife when I back home next two weeks.

This is Narita, a destination of every large airlines around the
world. Such as explained by Simbah Wiki, Narita handles the majority
of international passenger traffic to and from Japan, and is also a
major connecting point for air traffic between Asia and the Americas.
The airport handled 35,478,146 passengers in 2007.  It is the
second-busiest passenger airport in Japan, and eighth-busiest air
freight hub in the world. What about Indonesia’s huh? Hehe..

Our final destination here is Temple University Japan Campus, located
in Tokyo. We will take a short course in Training Management and HR
Management during two week, June 28th to July 10th. It mean I can’t
completely enjoying every match of world cup South Africa 2010, an
event I’ve been waiting since Germany 2006 finished four years ago.

Well, Japan is about 8408.20 miles (or 13531.32 kilometers) away from
South Africa. This distance is equal with walking along Sabang to
Merauke in two and a half times (wooowwww…) But world cup fever is
also infect Japan although its phenomenon is less glorious then in
2002 while Japan and Korea became co-host of Greatest Show on Earth,
goal.. goal.. goal.. Football fever in Japan is blue fever here.
Everything is blue, because Japan National Team is also called Blue

One moment, Japanese have no reason to stop talking about Honda. Don’t
imagine that they are discussing Soichiro Honda, the founder of Honda
Motor Company, manufacturer of automobiles and motorcycles. A person
who become hot topic in Japan is Keisuke Honda, a man who written his
name in the scoresheet when Japan beat Cameroon in their first world
cup game. Bloemfontain, South Africa, Monday, June 14th will be a
special day for Honda. In the day when he celebrate his 24th birthday,
he made a historical moment in his life, Japan got a victory after
Honda’s kick netted Cameroon goal. In the second match against
Netherland, due to a goal by Wesley Sneijder, Japan abandoned their
second history. And, in the last group stage match against Denmark,
the second history was realized. Honda, once more, leads Japan victory
by his first goal followed by Endo and Okazaki.

Australia and Korea Democratic People’s Republic have kicked-out from
South Africa 2010. But, the journey of Samurai Blue, and Korea
Republic, is continue. They duplicate “History of 2002”, the year when
Samurai Blue face the second leg in their debut. News from Africa,
more and more, dominated newspaper headlines or newscast. Japanese is
now waiting for another history, when Japan meet Paraguay in the
second leg, tonight. Everybody in Tokyo wearing blue shirt of the
national football team they’re proudly of. Today, Japan is equal with
16 teams which are still survive in the greatest football competition.
Its better than two finalist of previous event, Italy and France,
which eliminated soon. They became a power because they have spirit,
and this spirit, however, cause a warmer atmosphere in this early
summer in Japan.
