Please don't try to move to Japan as a resident. I'm not trying to sound offensive or anything like that, but if anime and a tad of cultural interest is your motivation please don't. Japan isn't the holy place anime makes it out to be, living there won't be easy and quite a lot of people there have a distaste for foreigners. For starters there aren't any subtitles there so you'd have to learn japanese which in itself isn't to complicated a language to speak, but kanji makes it nearly impossible to master. I'm getting sidetracked, anyways please do your research first and watch videos from japanese youtubers about their thoughts on you moving to japan. I'm sure it'll be very educational.

As much as I enjoy Japanese media, I wouldn't want to live there extensively for multiple reasons. For one the language barrier (The only other language I'm competent in is Spanish so good luck there), also being a woman keeping a job there would be more of a hassle than I'd bother dealing with especially if I get married or have a child. Plus I'd probably wouldn't fit in much since I'm not really interested in avoiding "rocking the boat" beyond expected politeness, I already ticked off one friend's Japanese parent because I said some Japanese are hypocritical in their prejudice against Korean migrants since the majority of the Japanese (who aren't of Ainu or other indigenous descent) are descendants of Koreans. Not to mention if something were to happen to me and for whatever reason, my kids can't be sent back to my family in my home country they'd have a crappy life since Japan's foster care system is heartbreakingly underfunded.

Vacation only. The cultural cons outweigh the pros, for me. I wouldn't be allowed to keep my electrical career, for one.

Live? I dunno. I'd like to spend a season there though. I could probably live in S. Korea though.
