as I'm trying to make my dream come true I've been looking for a way to travel to Japan for free, or with minimal costs. I know for sure that I'll apply for smth like JET programme (but unfortunately, I'm from Poland where JET isn't available...), but for now I just want to visit this country so badly!
There's a thing called WWOOFing (from WWOOF - Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms) - you simply visit any country to work on the organic farm, for which you get free food and accommodation. But there's more to it! It's gives you opportunity to live with (for example) normal Japanese family under one roof, and you're treated as a member of it :P
Ok, but what to do with the flight expenses? Yep, that's the only cost, which for me (as a student) isn't something that I can forget. But comon, 3 months (tourist visa) in Japan for just
$1200? :D It's great opportunity to get to know Japanese culture from inside.
And this is where I need your help. I'm participating in a scholarship program, which is more of an Internet popularity contest. The more votes you get, the bigger the chances to win your scholarship. "Prize" pool is about $30,000 and will be distributed among the contestants with highest popularity, so it'll should be enough to pay about 25 scholarships.
So please, vote for me :D I want to visit Japan so badly, and in the future to stay there for the rest of my life (and no, I don't think that Japan looks like in anime or manga :P).
