Where does the money go when you have 30+ people paying $50-$100 for a seminar?
lol, Return airfare from Japan x2 or 3 for a start.
There goes a fair whack of your $1500-3000. And they haven't even stepped off the plane yet.

Add accommodation, some appearance fee for the visiting instructor, feeding/entertaining them, the cost of hiring the venue, insurance, etc.
At $100 for several days top-level instruction, you have yourself a bargain...
