It seems like one of my dreams will come true! I am an American moving to Tokyo. I have made all the necessary arrangements concerning the documents and I even have the place to stay so I will save a lot of money like that. The only thing left for me is to find some job (I am ready to do anything) in order to stay there as much as possible. I am hoping to spend at least a year in Japan!
And I have to say that I envy you very much. I had the similar idea couple of years ago, but my parents did not agree, I guess I was too young at the moment and now I have some other obligations. But still, I dream of Japan and I am slowly making preparations to visit that beautiful land and to stay there at least several weeks. Perhaps we will see each other there!
