Hello, I am currently 19 and am considering getting a bachelor's degree in either Japan, South Korea or Germany. This thread will focus on the Japan side. I'm fine with going but my dad is concerned about me getting into legal trouble because I wouldn't be aware of the laws. He said he would feel better if I was in some program with multiple people since then I would be taken care of by people experienced with Japan. While the decisions is ultimately mine, I would prefer to let my dad have ease of mind if I go. Is there any way I could do this? Either some degree program or way to ensure I wouldn't run into legal trouble?

IANAL and I honestly know nothing about your situation, or how it works, student visas, etc. so I'm totally just guessing here... I would imagine that your school would have some sort of office or whatever that would be able to help, at least have a booklet outlining the basics etc. International student life or affairs office or something similar. Let us know what you find out.
