This project has finished.
I couldn't be happier! I have no words to thank you for all the support I've received!
Thanks to you I'm going to fulfill my dream of visiting Japan very soon.
I can't wait to meet my friends and see all the places and things I saw just in pictures, until now.
If possible, I would like to increase the places to go in Japan, so I will be able to meet more friends, and to know more about this wonderful country.
I'm so happy and grateful that I can't express it in words!
Nice to meet you! I'm from Indonesia and my name is Trisye Bala (you can call me Tris!). Japan is a country where I really want to live someday. Before that, I want to feel its culture and I want to meet my Japanese friends and that's why I want to travel to Japan.
Japan is a beautiful country. I want to know all Japan! I don't think you can have many chances of visiting Japan in your life but I will make my best effort to make my dream come true.
When I was a child I watched a lot of anime on TV and I became so interested in Japan that I started to think about visiting the country. In that time I found Airtripp! At first I wanted to know people from every country but when I started to use it more I loved so much Japan that I even forgot about other countries!
I've received a lot of support from other users while participating in [Country I want to go] Campaigns, so a few months ago I could complete my Gift Bank to Japan! I was really happy but going to a country is not only a flight ticket. There are many other expenses like the visa fees that make more difficult to travel.
I'm a school teacher. My monthly income is low, so I don't have much left over at the end of the month.
If I can go to Japan, I would like to visit many places. Especially, I want to go to Tokyo, Osaka and Hamamatsu. I would like to meet with all my Airtripp's friends. And of course, I also want to experience Japanese culture. I would like to wear a kimono, to try dango and okonomiyaki, eat ramen, go to many shrines and visit old traditional spots.
In fact, what I really want to do is get ready to live in Japan. If everything is okay I would like to move to Japan in 2 or 3 years!
Currently I'm taking care of my sister, and when she graduates and go to University in two years later, I think I will be able to move to Japan ! There in Japan, I want to learn Japanese at school and after that find a job.
When I have free time I try to study and practice Japanese, talking to my Japanese friends and watching Japan TV shows. I can also sing in Japanese! Thanks to Airtripp I'm also gathering a lot of information about Japan that will be really useful during my trip.
Also, I'm trying to save some money, not only for this trip, but for my future life in Japan!
The cost of staying in Japan for 2 weeks will be $ 1,000, including accommodation expenses, transportation expenses (high train in Japan!), Visa application fee, and some cultural experiences that I would love to try.
If I receive your support I will be able to visit Japan in October of this year! When I receive the flight ticket from Airtripp, I will apply for tourist visa.
If I go to Japan I want to meet all my Japanese friends!
