What do you mean "take in"?

You can't just show up with a knapsack bundle on a stick and say "Hello Japan. I'm ready to be a citizen!"

Of course, you can't do that with most countries so I don't see why it would be a suprise.

Compared to which countries? I think it's pretty similar to the US.

If you live in US or one of the countries that's pretty close with Japan, you can easily get a 90 day tourist visa (can't work in Japan with this visa). There's also the option of the working holiday visa for a year, in which a previous thread stated the quota for number of people getting those visas is never filled, so you should be able to get one with a good enough application. You can also get a specific type of working visa depending on your working field (much easier to get if you have a degree). And then there's the spouse visa for those with a Japanese spouse which enables you to work however you like. If you want to be a Japanese citizen, you have to be a resident of Japan for 5 years, nationalize, and denounce any other citizenship you have (sucks that they don't allow dual citizenship).

It's not nearly that simple, but yeah.

I kind of cheated by saying 'nationalize'. All you have to do to become a citizen of any country is nationalize. It's easier to just say that than putting forth effort and figuring out the rest of the nationalization process >=D

By that reasoning any country is easy to become a citizen in.

"Just nationalize."
