I have moved your thread to the Introduction forum, as this is your first post!!
Welcome, glad that you joined
As for the question of training in Japan...there are a number of things that need to be taken into consideration, and there are actually a few members in Japan now training for extended periods of time!
Is the organization open to "short term trainers"
Do they require a recommendation letter from your current sensei or shihan? (probably)
Visa considerations (does your country and Japan have a visa waiver agreement that will allow you to stay for 90 days without a visa, or will you be required to get a different type of visa)
Do you have the funds to support yourself during the entire stay, as working will probably not be practical (see visa question, as well as being there for the purpose of training!)
I am sure that there are more, but these are the ones that come to mind...and as a long time former resident of Japan, if there are things that I can assist you with, in terms of information or experience, don't hesitate to ask

I am glad to hear from you, and so quickly ;)
I am from Spain, my country is allow to stay there 90 ndays, so there is no problem here, I am first kyu and my shihan would be glad to write a letter, I know (he always wants the best for his "Gakusei".
Do you know any gym? Or website to see about short term trainers???
Fo exemple, Nicholas Pettas offers a Gaijin House for free and you only have to pay the month fee!!! And your food and transportation... I know it can cost around 700€ per month!!!
I hope you can help with this kind of questions!!!
Thank you so much to everybody to build this forum! Is the best way to comunicate with people that have the same "likes"....
