I lived in Japan 4 years, 34 years ago! I still miss it and regret ever having left! I console myself by carving Netsuke and am studying to achieve JLPT N2 . I would like to go back to Japan for a few months to improve my Japanese but at 69 years old ,though in good shape, I feel too old for a homestay or work. I would like to study something in Japanese with Japanese people rather than go to a Japanese school for foreigners where most students wont speak good Japanese. Any ideas?
