2011 Year Student Exchange

I'll be staying in Japan (with a Japanese family) for the course of 1 year. I'm going to be treated and expected to act like a member of the family, meaning I must take the responsibilities of one. I will go down as a fulltime student for the year, therefor I can finish my credits.
After that, i'm applying for university there and never coming back! LOL!

You're going to love it there. I miss Ichinomiya =/

I don't remember their high schools having a credit system... at least mine didn't anyways. >.> I had to still finish mine here.

And from what I've read you have to have lived in Japan for 5 years before you can acquire citizenship and stay permanently.

Also student visa are renewable up to as long as 2 years... So you'd have to return to Canada during the summer to re-apply for another student visa to finish your Uni degree. Unless otherwise your uni has the hook ups with the immigration bureau.:P

But since you'll be an exchange student for 1 year plus your 4 uni years, you're good to go! :D

Wow! I wish I could do

Wow! I wish I could do that!! You're so fortunate! and good luck with it too! I'm sure Japanese is much much easier to pick up when you're living there and i'm sure you'll have a ball! My mah's friend's brother went to Japan for a holiday and never came back, so it must be good!
Again, good luck!! :D
