As such, there are a lot of preparations that must be made by yourself and rules that need to be followed before you enter the country as well as after you arrive in Japan (*Note1). The first things first, understand about this.
Ritsumeikan University has prepared a web system (AMARYS) for you to submit and report to the university, such as application for issuance of a pledge required for applying VISA, progress of pre-departure preparations, and daily health condition after entering Japan.
From the application for issuance the pledge required for visa application to the daily report of your health condition after entering Japan, you will be required to do everything on this system (on AMARYS).
