Long term stay in two years time, wanna get it right, what help can be offered? :)
Well, its recently come available as part of what I could potentially do, to take a few months in Japan. Its something I\'ve wanted to do a while, and I\'ve started learning Japanese. I\'m not going in the near future though, two years away in fact, since I recently got accepted for a college course. I\'m 17 now, and I\'ll be 19 when I intend to leave. My current plans are to learn Japanese, and work out more nitty-gritty stuff like air travel, accomodation and stuff like that, nearer the time. Maybe half a year in advance. Plenty of time to worry and freak hehe. When I get there, I\'m going to stay for several months, to integrate with the culture, further my fluency (At least I oughta be by then) And make friends and join in with the culture. I intend to crash at Tokyo.
Basically, what I\'m after is if anyone has suggestions, support, advice, what Japan is like, what factors I should take into account in a long term stay, or even possible someone to join me for the trip, or better yet, someone at the other end willing to hold up a sign with my name at the airport, to help me out! :D
My plans so far are very vague, but its in serious consideration, and given how much time I have due to college, I wanna get it right.
I\'ll be getting a job, probably renting somewhere, and doing those such things.
Any help/support much appreciated! ^.^
