Japan visa

After a week of waiting, today I finally got my visa for Japan. Sounds ridiculous I know, but yes, Romanians do need a visa to enter the Rising Sun kingdom. In fact they are the only EU and Central and Eastern European country that does, Croatia or Bulgaria not to mention other older EU countries, have free entrance, which should be normal. Regardless of this and the recent EU accession, we do need one. Why? I suspect the "masterminds" that negotiated bilateral diplomatic agreements, otherwise i don't see any reason for discrimination, beside our own "leaders" 'actions. This required a lot of paperwork and proofs, even more so than a US one, but everything was smooth sailing for me. Sayonara!
