I really want to spend time in Japan, in high school my mom and I hosted students from Kakuda High school in Miyagi prefecture and we became close friends. Now I hope to visit Japan to get more experience with the language. Financially, want are some suggestions? Also, how did you finance activities like backpacking through multiple countries at a relatively young age?
