I want to live in based JAPAN for the rest of my life but I don't have a university degree. I have a little bit of money though, is there some way I can get some sort of residency or long term visa?

        what made her want to leave? is it the lack of attention and soulessness of Japanese society.

          She's still there, she studies japanese and seems that she works in an isakaya at night, for what I've seen she's still pretty excited of the prospect of living there, just recently she got a better department on Tokyo, but she's been there probably just since March of this year using a student visa. As far as I know she's doing everything in her power to stay there permanently

          Yup, that’s the case for the majority of those who moved to Japan because of le anime/waifus or because they spent a couple weeks there as a tourist and thought that’s how they’ll get treated forever once they move in, get a job, and actually start having to interact with some of the same people over and over again.
          It’s just Paris Syndrome but in slow motion. You’ll ALWAYS be an outsider no matter how good your Japanese is or how tuned into the culture you think you are.

          > You'll always be an outsider
          Isn't like that in most countries? I haven't travelled as much as some anons here but for what I've seen only in some places of latin America the locals don't mind foreigners and even celebrate when they try to imitate their customs

            Correct. Only Western countries accept those of a different ethnicity/origin as their own, provided they speak the language decently. A white guy in Japan/Korea/China will forever be a white guy no matter how assimilated he is, while the reverse is literally everywhere in the US

            It's just that of the countries that the average Westerner is enamored with and wants to live in, it's really only Japan that does not have this "culture" of being "open". So it's often a point of complaint among (attempted) expats and frequently the reason they eventually give up - they quite simply never achieve their dream of actually "becoming Japanese".

            The point you mentioned about natives celebrating when the foreigner follows their customs is actually a frequently whined-about thing among expats that actually put effort into assimilating. No matter how good they are at it, Japanese (and East Asians in general) will always treat you like a toddler and go wild over seeing you observe the most basic etiquette.

              No the frick this is not true.
              I'm an African-American whose ancestry on this land goes back to before this country was even founded and I'll still be treated like an outsider compared to you wh*te homosexuals going to Europe or something.
              I'd rather be treated like an outsider when I am actually an outsider, than feel that alienation in the country I was born in.

          That's fine.
          White people hate this because they don't know how it feels. They're used to being the "default" in the country they come from.
          I think this is why I never see Black American people living in Japan say anything but positive stuff about Japan, least of all about racism, because Japanese xenophobia more or less matches the same treatment they would experience back home.

              Yes, that's my point.
              You yourself almost definitely hold some negative views on Black people too, which only further proves my point.

              In America much of us feel unwelcome, even amongst our own people at times due to negative stereotypes and 24/7 media that paints a violent and hostile image of us.
              In Japan no matter where I went I wasn't followed around in stores, if I felt like an outsider, It's because I am an outsider, which I'm fine with because whitey has to deal with the same thing.

              It's kind of a principle thing.
              I'd rather feel like an outsider in a country where I am that, versus feeling like an outsider in my own country, and It's crazy to me that I feel as though at least as a tourist, I was treated with less skepticism than in the very city where I grew up and have been living longer than all of the whiteys, hispanics, and indians who came here after me.

              I miss Japan. I wish I could go back already.

      I lived there for three years and would have stayed, but I was working as a farmhand and not earning enough. I left for the same reason all the japs move to the cities. There's not enough money in agriculture. I might move back when I'm older, they are making it even easier for foreigners to move for such work and I'll have enough money to buy my own land. Though if they get full of blacks it probably isn't worth it.

    if you are a social reject or not beneficial to the japanese economy (and by that I mean working in a field where a Japanese can't do the same job without the hassle of you being a gaijin) and don't have lot of money, you won't get visa, residency or any chance of being respected in le basedo nippon tbh.

      true in general but not always.
      At a bar last night I met a girl who proudly declared herself otaku and was thrilled to talk to me about anime. But then we had a super awkward conversation and she left without exchanging contact info.
      The real problem is that weebs in Japan are just as awkward/antisocial as in any other country, so it's hard for us to connect. and of course it's 10x harder if you don't speak Japanese.

      Is that always the case, though? I mean, it's true that most of the stuff I like comes from Japan but it's entry level shit like Japanese cars, technology, pokemon, kaiju, persona, evangelion. I would rather be somewhere where I generally feel more at home with what I like. Everything here in bongland is bames, football and aimlessly getting pissed every weekend.

      I just want to go there because it's a nicer place to be, and do the same thing I already do in London, work a 9-5 while being in a more pleasant country.

    Yes, at least 4 ways actually
    >business owner visa
    Easiest option, you just need 50k usd starting capital and hire 1-2 Japanese natives for your business. In practice you need a lot more capital though.
    >HSP visa
    Specialise in something that is rare enough to be needed (e.g. obscure hard IT shit), then based on the HSP point system you can make it without a degree
    >10+ years work experience
    Be able to document that much *relevant* work experience
    >Spousal

      How does that work? I've worked as a Chemical Operator for 3 years, in another 7 years I can just move to Japan just because I have 10 years of work experience? Or would I need to somehow lock down a chemical operator job and then be granted a work visa?

        According to my headhunter friends there it has to do with them leaving the entry level positions for Japanese folks first, with managerial+ positions (ie 7-10 years experience) being in vacancies. It may be for nationalism or maybe they figure your lack of cultural/linguistic fluency gets outweighed by your credentials. In my opinion, the foreigner-attractive companies are international. It’s not a secret that Japan is in massive debt and strain to raise kids is only getting worse. I’d gander that since the 27-45 year old demographic is more likely to be supporting a family that there is more likelihood of them finding greener grass in another country as well, thus more opportunities for us to have the Japan experience.

        Tldr 10years is where experience starts beating lack of fluency in their eyes

      Different anon replying to your post because i think its a good idea and i would like to hear more about it

      My personal suggestion to OP is to get a degree from an unaccredited college or university .

      There are schools out there that issue you a “ degree “ from their institution after you pass 1 class after a week . It’s a joke , of course , but they have the authority to issue degrees and no one can stop them , and they have official sounding names .

      There are standards that some higher education committees set for universities to be considered real or “ accredited “ , but who really checks ?

      Legal in a variety of states , look up degree mill schools and just get a degree . I think it will set you back about a thousand dollars .

      Lastly , consider going to China instead is Japan if you like rules being relaxed , you’re almost certainly going to be considered chabuduo there ( the difference is not very much )

      Good luck

    BULLSHIT...Just study japanese language until you can pass their Visa exam on knowing how to read and speak japaneses. Then you can work at a Konbini or wipe old peoples asses. Japan NEEDS uneducated immigrants to work low wage jobs. If you think "leveling up your JAP career to get high paying job to obtain visa" is the solid move..its because youre a fricking idiot. Japs will always see themselves as superior to non JAP races and see their countrymen as more deserving of career level jobs.

    Its that easy. Just level up your language proficiency work at Konbini then once youre in apply for a prestigious JAP university and moonlight there. JAPPO universities auto select whyte pipo to hit diversity scores to expose the JAP ruling class to westoids.

    Frick everyone on this board for not calling this out sooner and posting bullshit...yur fricken dumb.
