So I'm applying to 5 UK unis and have received one offer so far. But enough about that - one thing I need to decide is whether or not to apply to a uni in Japan - Hokkaido University. Their MJSP program is pretty much all I want in a course, with a strong Japanese language element and studying social sciences and humanities. However, they've got pretty bad rankings and their personal statement needed is a whopping 2000 words. I don't know if I really want to apply - my parents don't want me to due to the rankings, but I am also really interested in Japan and its culture, history, and society, and am pretty much enamored by the course. What do I do?

Just started my application by paying and I feel instant regret because of the amount of work it wants to put me and my teachers through. Should I just ignore this, put it behind me, and waste the money?

No
Your teachers' jobs are to deal with applications to university, don't feel regret because your teachers have to write one additional reference on top of the other 30 from their other students.
Contact your college's admissions advisor or whoever is most involved in normal UCAS applications and ask them to gather and verify any documents that you are unable to do yourself.
They would undoubtedly have dealt with international applications before as they might see hundreds of students' applications each year.
If you have a lot of trouble with the application and it takes longer than expected, the university will likely have multiple application windows so you can just apply later.

Contact me if you want any additional help or information about your application if you decide to go through with doing it.
Complete your application, you will regret wasting the opportunity if you don't.
