Well, this is a bit of a shot in the dark... I’m looking to contact an old pen friend who I communicated with in the early 1990’s. Her name is xx 由紀子 or ゆき, and she would be approximately 46 years old. While we were both high school students, we started as pen friends and at the time she lived in 勝田市, near Mito in Ibaraki (this is in the the late 1980s) and in the early 1990’s she moved to the following address:
x Chome−xx−xx
Kyōdō, Setagaya-ku
Tokyo 〒156-0052

Any help in reconnecting would be greatly appreciated! ありがとう!

That address is currently an apartment building and looks like it was built more recently than that. At any rate, the address you gave doesn't contain an apartment number.

You could post YOUR full name and address in case she looks for you someday. You thought it was alright to post hers, after all.

I removed her surname and a part of the address since it's personal information.
Toritoribe, thanks for editing my post. This was my first time trying to find someone and form the sounds of Mike’s post, I did something foolish by posting the full name and an almost 30 year old address. Maybe could you just remove my post entirely, please?

In the future, if I choose to use another site or method to find my old friend, what info would be safe to offer? Should I never give surname or house number? Thanks for the kind assistance and this opportunity to learn.

I think it's best to post the rough address (only the prefecture and/or city) and not the full name (just the surname or given name), and when you get reply, PM them the detailed information. Then, you can avoid posting detailed personal information in the forum.
