To help get you started contributing, we've created a tips for new contributors page, full of helpful links about policies and guidelines and style, as well as some important information on copyleft and basic stuff like how to edit a page. If you need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, or post a message in the travellers' pub.
Since you are an active Wikipedia user, you might want to have a look at Wikitravel:Welcome,_Wikipedians as well. And hey, it's nice to see another American in Japan. Perhaps there are some things you and I can collaborate on. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to hit up my talk page. Cheers! Texugo 01:31, 16 March 2010 (EDT)
