    Hi there,
    I have a question that i believe you can help me.
    I am US green card holder but indonesian nationality. I am going back to Indonesia soon but my flight will transit in Narita Tokyo for 21 hours…and i wish to be able to go out or stay in hotel instead of waiting for 21 hours inside the airport. My question is…do i need a visa for that since i will just stay there for 21 hours waiting for my next flight? Because if i can stay in the hotel then i will book the hotel soon before i leave from US….Since booking a hotel is 100% non refundable so i need to get this information correctly ….Please help me solve this problem as soon as you can since my flight just a couple days away
    Thank You so much
    Domo arigato gojaimasu

    to, ministry of justice immigration Dept:
    as in Japan for thouse who have permanent residence their
    alien registration card should be diffrent from other status of visa holder. as sometime inside & out side japan while law inforsement official don’t know why the alien card holder visa
    priod of stay fill in star mark? so if residence permit holder
    hold diffrent kind of alien card it will be easy for both side.
    I hope ministry will take my comment seriously

    Peter Paul Ureta Alonsagay said (25 March 2008 at 6:51 pm) is me again..son of paul torres alonsagay…
    i haven’t heard any word from my father for months, and he never sent me any of his financial support for my needs, i am very desparate because right now i, again for the second time, had a leave of absence from my university.. due to lack of funds, i was not able to carry everything…my father never provided what i wanted besides the electric guitar he gave me and the badminton racket, he won’t even freely lend me his mountain bike.. knowing that my father is a very generous person to others, and a very good drinking buddy(johnny walker, j&b, smbpilsen, etc.), i wish i knew how to do as well so that i could enjoy the luxary of those… he is very much capable of sending me to the best university in the philippines, where the tuition is way lower than any other universities'(max tuition is 10 thousand pesos), and also could very much provide me and share to me his luxuries.. i am his legitimate son, yet, i felt like i’m the illegitimate one…he is being very irrational…he is being very selfish…this message didn’t mean to insult him or scandalize him in any way, surely when he reads this, he’ll be drinking again to his problems(which is of course very infantile), and get angry at me, he’ll call me with him shouting, that’s what he could do best instead of doing beneficial action..well papa, i hope you read this… you haven’t sent me any allowances for 4 months, i am very much drowned in debts, i did some part time, but it wasn’t just enough..and stop blaming your wife ma. elvie ureta-alonsagay, because this issue is just between you and me…how dare you… i have been keeping grudges and i don’t like it, i’m very upset, you even haven’t done something for me…because all you did was just for yourself…you still are very childish… because i know that i think more maturely than you do.. you don’t even know how to listen to me, your own son, because you would prefer to listen from your pathetic mistress…my step siblings even get to wear GAP and Donna Karan merchandise, and me? i wear som ukay ukay!!! you see people? MY DAD IS THE BEST IN THIS WRETCHED WORLD… if being mean, and being selfish were the outstanding values in this world, my father is the standard…i haven’t done but good to you, bringing your family name into streamers and newspapers, and a PHILIPPINE SCIENCE HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA, and as a UP Diliman Student!!!!

    well, i think that’s enough…please let my father know of this, He is PAUL TORRES ALONSAGAY, he is a big man with a child’s ego…

    4 days ago, i experienced a horrible night in Narita airport. I was an overstay before and believed that i have served already the 5 yrs penalty. I got married (mean legally and truly) to my japanese husband now for almost 4 years,me & my kids were granted VISAS by the embassy so we went to japan… April 24, the most unforgetable and humiliating experience happened to me at the Narita Airport… some are kind, but some are very very arrogant as if i am a criminal… that experience was very traumatic for me that i am trying to seek an advise from a lawyer. I dont have any objection about the their argument of me being an over stay before… but the whole process of how they are handling and how they treat me is unforgivable!!!! Me and my husband agreed that i will not live with him in japan but instead after having enough savings, he will be the one to retire in the philippines. why is it hard for them to believe???? kawateiru deshio??? lot of foreign nationals get married and very eager to live in japan,,, I AM NOT (NO OFFENSE TO OTHERS PLS.)i only wanted to visit my husband with my kids !!!! my point is that …. here am i complete with legitemate, authentic documents and had filed my application with the datas with all honesty…. and yet they treat me as if i had afake marriage…. etc… how i wish i could explain and elaborate more of really transpired during that whole night of me being held at the NARITA AIRPORT. I dont question the LAW, but i questioned the way they handle an investigation there… japanese are supposed to be polite in any situation…. but what i have experienced made me change of what i thought japanese are.

    forget him bubbles, you know better than getting your life fucked up because of that oblivious guy. You can lead your life in a manner of not being dependent to him. Get a job at the call center or whatever. A lot of UP students made their way to graduation by sticking and setting their mind head-forward to their goals. Itampa dayun sa iya dude pag graduate mu sa Diliman. Hambala xa nga you did it not for his name but for yourself and your mom. Pabatyag ka lng nga buhi ka but show him you did the best for yourself and your mom without his help. Pucha, make him feel it bubbles. Law-ay2x gd yah ang feeling nga gna bayaan pero padayon ka lng yah eh.
