I'm not applying for japanese, but I have been trying to teach myself the language for the past few years. I'm planning on going to Japan in end of May/early June this year for about 3 weeks. I'd be going on my own (to avoid disappointment of friends/strangers saying they'll come with me and cancelling at the last minute) but I'd be very interested in meeting other people while in Japan, perhaps travelling together for a bit (just so I don't go insane from not being able to speak fluently to someone for 3 weeks). Anyone planning on going around the same time? Or do you know someone who is going?
... and the ones that won't
