My opinion is that it's not a good idea to start Aikido that way.

I would train a while (a year or two) then start deciding about making such a commitment.

Most styles have a hombu dojo which is where practitioners often travel to learn from the head of that style. Almost all of them have intensive courses, and most are based in Japan.
My advice is to try before you buy. There is so much difference in not only the techniques of different styles but also the feel you get while training. To travel there and start learning is a big commitment (although I know a few people who have done it and cannot wait to go back).
Sometimes you need references/an invitation to go so my advice is to find a local dojo and if you like what they do, they will be able to tell you everything you need to know about training at their hombu.
Hope you find this helpful.

One option, go to tokyo and go to the Yoshinkan Aikido honbu dojo. There is full time training there. On certain courses you have to clean the place also. The course stopped being residentual in the seventees but its still full time training. Read ''Angry White Pyjamas'' this will give you an insight about what training is like there. There are many other options.
