[Monday 20th November]
The whole day today was devoted to carrying out various errands around Tokyo relating to Chie's visa application, which we eventually submitted at the British Embassy towards the end of the afternoon. In the end I didn't quite give them the full payload of 200 photos I'd sorted out the previous day, given that there was a particular envelope for all the paperwork to go in which they wouldn't really have fit in. Instead they got an annotated cross section, from 2000 up to the present day, which will hopefully be sufficient. I guess I should have labelled the little album with "more available on request".
Not much else to report really - it was pretty tiring rushing round Tokyo getting all that sorted out. In the evening when we got back we had gnocchi for dinner, and then set about trying to find an onsen to visit for the next day or two.

I was wondering why the BE wouldn't accept just the marriage certificate that you have from Japan... I mean, that ought to be sufficient!!

Oh yea, they accept that as a valid marriage certificate, but unfortunately getting a spouse visa still requires a lot more bureaucracy on top of the marriage certificate.
