Three Years

In December last year I went to the Immigration Office in Kyoto to request for an extension of my work visa in Japan. Before last year, I had to keep requesting for an extension every year because they only granted me a visa valid for one year.

Last month I applied for a three-year visa and they accepted my request, so now I can keep working in Japan until 2022. But I have not yet decided whether I will stay here until then. My first agreement with Inari-san was for me to work here until 2020, and I still don’t know whether I will continue to keep working at Inari-juku after the next school year.

I told Inari-san I would think about it until the end of January this year, but I don’t know if I will be able to give an answer then. Maybe if I don’t keep forgetting… 😅
