Thanks Richard! Now that I'm finally re-registered I can reply. I did get ahold of Mama-san and she was very helpful. Unfortunately I was over an hour and a half away (one way) by train and because my plane was leaving at 4:50 pm, I didn't want to take a chance of missing it (it had been a long week). It about killed me not being able to get to their shop. I'll probably be back through Japan again later this year, so now that I'm a little more familiar with what I have to do, I'll make it there.
