One of my dreams was to someday go to Japan. This was almost impossible for me however, due to my intense phobia of riding on airplanes. But a few weeks ago, my cousin Thoren told me he was going to Japan in November for a Monster Hunter convention, and asked me if I wanted to go. Monster Hunter is one of my favorite games, and if there was ever a reason to go to Japan, this was it. I'm even willing to fight my phobia this once so I can go.
The problem is of course, the price. Going to school most of the time and watching my grandmother as well makes it hard for me to get a well paying job, much less good enough to cover a trip to japan in a little over 2 months.
I need to raise money to help afford the tound trip ticket there and back, along with a passport< which are the most expensive requirements of this trip. We will be staying in a hotel in Osaka for a week and will be splitting the price of the hotel. Each day, we will get on a shuttle to tokyo, where we will explore for most of the days, and go to the convention on the days it is open.
This may be my only chance to actually face my fears AND go to a place I've been wanting to go for a long time. I would greatly appreciate any help towards making this happen.
