How can I obtain Japanese citizenship?
As a foreigner, you can obtain Japanese citizenship if you get naturalized. The conditions are as follows:
1)An address in Japan for consecutive 5 years or more,
2)20 yrs. old or above, and capable according to the laws of one's own country,
4)Ablity to make a living by oneself or by the skills/assets of family members,
5) Willingness to lose present citizenship by obtaining Japanese citizenship.
However, if you are married to a Japanese citizen, condition 1) is reduced to 3 years. Also, if 3 years or more have passed since the date of marriage, the requirements are reduced.
