Sounds wonderful. Something I cannot have. Sad

I wonder how difficult it is to become a Japanese citizen and live there permanently...

Hard, you can not be a citizen any where else in the world for one. In other words if you went back to Australia you would no longer be a citizen.

And again from what I hear it's hard to get most jobs, usually your choice of jobs is limited.

This is something i'm definately planning to import. I've been wondering if a Shinkai artbook had been released and here is the news to confirm it. I'm very excited!

I will be importing this as well I will be  inspired by his paintings even more so. There in front of me, in a book, that's 456 pages -or at least something like that- long!

Will be unable to read but oh well  Rolling Eyes

His paintings are absolutely stunning. My favourite examples of his art are in the first half of Place Promised. The green landscapes he shows, I think, are wonderfull.

Your best bet would probably be http://www.play-asia.com/ but i've been looking on the site and i can't find it. Hopefully it'll be up for pre-order soon.

I have found only two online shops which will sell it. But
I'm not sure they would accept order from overseas. (And,
the sites are written only in Japanese.) Amazon.co.jp does
not list the book yet.
