Yes, starting close to zero, bu willing to put quite an effort into it. Perhaps there may be a combination of good distance learning combined with annual 2-3 month stays in Japan? If it could be within tube distance of Iwama - all the better!! Tokyo?? Mito?? 3-5 years....??
There is a flat in Tokyo which I am free to use....
Many thanks so far!
Still thinking. Iwama is quite a small place, and quite far from both Mito and Tokyo (from memory). Not impossible from either location, but not something that I'd want to do on a regular basis. The only Japanese university I have studied at is in Nagoya and I don't think it would really suit your needs. Perhaps Peter Goldsbury has some ideas.
