Thanks go to Ayako for writing the letter from Nambu, which was WAY beyond my skill level. The pathetic little letter from Joe was me pushing my abilities to the limit. :)
If you can't read Japanese (or can't read MY Japanese), click on the letter for the translation.
Joe's Japanese dialogue is written by me. Everyone else's is also written by me, but corrected by Ayako. :) There are no translations for the regular Japanese dialogue because a) now that Ayako's corrected it for me, I don't know what any of it says, and b) I want the reader to feel some of what Joe does with not being able to understand.
