If you have a real interest to go to Japan and study then by all means follow your dreams. However, I would caution you to stop and try to figure out "what" exactly you are trying to get out of the training and what your goals are. What about the "traditions" or "systems" sound pretty good to you? My point is do you know any real details about them? I'm not trying to dissuade you from ultimately going but please do your homework and take steps to make yourself knowledgeable before you do it. Also please go in with realistic expectations.
