RE: Japanese and school

They have Japanese, Latin, Chinese, French, and Spanish at my school. They used to have Russian, but they dropped it for some reason. I believe my high school is the only public high school that offers Japanese in Phoenix.

Citizenship?

こんにちは! How long would someone have to stay in Japan before applying for citizenship? Or could someone just live there as long as they want? Would they have to apply for immigration or have to do anything special to live there as a citizen? Plus how would one go about applying for citizenship? ありがとうご...
