Yes and No

I received an email from Japan on why they've refused to give Nigerians visa.

They said many Nigerians do abscond in Japan after entering the country.

I was given mine within 3 days

So this thread was brought to my attention by a nairalander. I am not sure what else needs to be said on here. however if anyone has any

questions, you can post it right here and i will do my best to respond.


One thing i must stress though, is that getting the visa from Nigeria is the hard part, going thru the POE is the easy part..

For years, some Nigerians has spoilt our countries name here, especially in Tokyo (Especially the igbos and yorubas). I have no beef against

any of this ethnicities but i am only stating the fact. From pimping ladies on the streets of roppongi, to drugs, etc.

On the flipside, We have serious minded Nigerians here who earn their living the legit way, from oil and gas, education sector, IT sector etc.

There was even a Yoruba guy by the name of Bobby Ologun ( look him on the internet for more information) who was very popular.

Sorry least i forget, knowning the Japanese language is key if you want to succeed here... If you dont know the language, you will be

handicapped seriously....

Lol sorry bro... to be honest, your email was perceived as you got everything under control...

With regards to your question, i guess you will have to consider the cost of the ticket....Flying into HND though would be my recommendation

because its in central Tokyo, compared to Narita....

Have you considered taking the bus?? its more cheaper if you ask me

Many thanks for the response.

My aunt just booked NRT, whereas all my mind has been on HND but the late night arrival is my challenge.

Flight arrives NRT by 5;30pm Japanese time.

Re: Japanese Visa And Travelling To Japan by davodyguy: 6:46pm On Oct 25, 2015
Finally entered Japan today oo

Arrived at 20:30pm , 25/10/15 that would be around 12:30pm Nigerian time.

Face two Immigration officers and got cleared.

They didn't even ask about money I took, though my PP showed BTA of 3.5k USD.

But I forgot a document with them and didn't know if I should go back to them.

One Nigerian based in Japan at the airport said, 'No I shouldn't go back to pick my documents, that the Japanese are this and that. The guy discouraged me, but I sumed up courage and went back to them, since I entered Japan legally.

I got to them and explained myself. They asked for my PP, checked and gave me NY documents back.

Landed in Narita Int.

We went to Marita express and took train.

Got ticket to Suidobashi. One from Narita to Tokyo station and the other to Suidobashi.

When we got to Tokyo, I was lost patapata. Saw the only Japanese who could speak English and he helped me out.

He said the Suidobashi train stopped and I have to go through Kunda and ochaomizu at subo line.

On getting to Ochanonizu, no one could speak in English, then I knew I was in for it.

I just walked up a staircase from the underground to the normal ground level.

Not knowing when to turn to, saw this couple and walked up to them telling my predicament. Time now 11:30pm Japanese time.

They couldn't English too well. The guy was trying, but the lady is zero.

Cab man, not fit speak A and B. We had to use car Navigation system to trace Suidobashi in Chiyoda Ku.

These couple had to join me in the cab to lead me to the hotel themselves.

The cab billed me ¥1000 yen from Ochanomizu to Suidobashi. It was the car that calculated the fare on the metre board.

We got to the hotel, I booked from Nigeria via Booking. com and these couple finally said their good bye.

I thanked them a lot and prayed for them.

Moral is that don't enter as a stranger to anywhere in the night, except you have a strong lead

Haaaa

Thanks

Japan is a very very beautiful country.


The people here are very neat. Cars are beautiful.


The people here are well cultured and mannered. Very respectful.

Nice and jovial.

The only problem is language and food.

I cant eat any of the food here.

They give us raw meat, fish, cray fish etc.

They have very beautiful ladies here.

Electricity is 100000000% stable

Road Network over super.

Would love to come back here, but the distance is just too much.

Ill be coming back on Saturday, will stop over in Dubai or Doha.

May God bless those that developed this country like this

Will post more pictures for you guys

Check their website.

Its very easy.

Just do a Google search Japanese embassy in Nigeria, download the form, fill and attach supporting documents with statements from the bank.

That's all
