Not sure whether it is worth extending my PR for another 5 years by having another visit to Japan- but think it would keep my options open. Have a controlling British girlfriend who would need a good reason from me to get a week to come over and do it, what could I say to her so I have a good reason to pop over? She isn't interested in coming at all. Hoped my PR might allow me to do business with Japan from the UK and who knows if I will ever come back. Got a child in the UK.
