Just a handy tidbit you may not know. If you are returning to Japan via Narita airport (or any airport, I assume??) with a valid re-entry permit, you can line up in the Japan Passports Line, instead of the Foreign Passports line at Immigration. My immigration officer the other day told me this was, 'more speedy' so I will take his word on it from now on.
