I'm on my way to the immigration office in Shinyurigaoka, hoping I've brought all the necessary documents. Criminal record, DNA sample, form signing away my unborn children etc. (just kidding). I can now look forward to hours of waiting for my turn (possibly delayed even further as the immigration office as one of the ONLY places in Japan closes for lunch) and having another 4000 yen (paperwork is expensive) and my work-permit (needs to be reapplied for=more paperwork) taken away from me. Today is actually the day of the entrance ceremony at Tokai, but since I only really have time to go today, I have to miss out on that. Oh well, at least I get to fill out tons of government forms in a stuffy office instead. Yey!
