Sitting in the airport lobby I decided to make a quick log entry. Due to the 90 day limit for touristic stays in Japan combined with the categorization of unpaid internships as touristic, I had to choose one out of two options to be able to stay for the desired 4 months: Either my office and I go through a bureaucratic application process with the migration authorities for an extension or I leave and reenter the country. It didn’t take either of us long to decide for the latter option. So here I am on my way to Singapore for a 5 day trip. Cu soon, Japan!
When I’m back I will give an update on my life in Tokyo and what I’ve been up to in the meantime.
