	This as an announcement about a really good opportunity for anyone
who is a grad student, or will be a grad student, and is interested in
spending a summer doing research in Japan.  The program allows you to find
a Japanese "host", whose research is somewhat compatable to your own, or
attempts to match you to a Japanese host in your general area, if you have
no host of your own in mind.  I went last year and collected data that will
be used in my postdoc work, as well as collecting data for other people in
my lab. 

	Please feel free to distribute the announcement to anyone that you
think will be interested.  Anyone wanting additional info about what it was
really like, is free to contact me at...
