I've known several English people from my stay in South Korea. Anyway, on some visa runs I would go to Japan. It seems like Japan would be a lot like England - as it's a monarchy, isolated island (from invasion), long history of knights - stuff like that, conservative culture, the fact people drive on the OTHER side of the road, as compared to Americans.

I have a friend who emigrated to Japan several years ago to escape his debts, and he met his now wife out there.

They came back to the UK for a short stint quite recently, but they struggled to get his wife a visa. The application itself was about £10,000 with no guarantee it would be accepted.. In the end they gave up and went back to Japan, as he's quite successful doing what he does out there (some kind of recruitment company).

I know the law is much more strict out there, especially concerning drugs.. He hasn't really said much more than that!

I'm out there in November, so I'll report back ;)

Not on the drugs! The culture. Just to clarify.
