    I don't think she's ever been there. No idea from where she's suddenly gotten her obsession. Maybe she's met a Saudi guy (in which case he's likely just using her as a "fun" girl while he's working or studying abroad. She's definitely not Saudi wife material. I mean she's been divorced which is a HUGE no-go in Saudi). But looking at her history it's not too shocking - she seems to have gone through a lot of "phases" as far as interests and fashion goes. Japan seems to be at the tail-end of one of those.  I honestly don't think she's ever really liked Japanese *culture* beyond the pop-culture stuff. 
    I  also know it's very hard to get a tourist VISA and it's near-impossible as a single woman.
    And as much as she denies it she was obsessed with the idea of Japan before she ever went. Her ex-boyfriend in his blog states that she forced them to dress up as Pokémon and in Kimono for a few Halloweens when they were in their teens. Seems she's going on the same path for Saudi but unfortunately for her it's not a culture you jump into and leave when you tire of it.

    Move over Japan, Miranda's new "fav" is Saudi Arabia. How long until she moves?

    I knew Japan would be a phase for her. Called it years ago. Ugh. What's her plan now - to get Japanese citizenship and then be a "Japanese woman who goes to Saudi Arabia and becomes a Saudi woman"? Of course it wouldn't be as "fun" since she'd never be able to leave.

    Yeah, Mira. That's right; you don't understand and are "uneducated on that". With undergrad degrees becoming the new high school diploma (aka needed for basically 99% of profitable career-paths) you want to make yourself stand out and spending a year abroad would be one very good way to do that, even if you don't plan on settling in that country long-term. It shows you're open to new experiences and are willing you get out of your comfort zone. Ah, but why am I wasting my breath - Mira doesn't value education as is clearly displayed by her lack of a formal education and no desire to self-educate.
    Also as far as the value of a certain country's degree? That mainly depends on the reputation of the country's educational system on a world-wide scale. For example, U.S degrees are highly valued world-wide especially if it's a "name" school like an Ivy (Harvard, Yale, etc) or even someplace like UCLA/NYU/Boston University, etc. You actually likely have a better chance of landing a good job in Japan having graduated from a well-known U.S school. But, again, Mira won't listen to logic or fact so ... wasting my time.

    Oh most definitely. The thought of Mira even picking up a book is hard to imagine. She doesn't even need to mention she hates books IT'S OBVIOUS. And she, more than anyone, desperately needs to read some ..

    I usually hate when people mention about MIRAs looks because, it's honestly usually not relevant. However, she says she doesn't dye her hair because Japanese value healthy, well-taken care of hair and dying it would damage it. However, is it just me or does her natural hair look very damaged anyway? Maybe it's the color but it looks dull and unkempt.

    But she does that in English too. I honestly think she just doesn't care what others say and just wants to talk about what she wants (which is usually herself and some relation to how Japanese she is.)

    Found this recent conversation in the comment section of her video "KANADAJIN3 videos EXPOSED - 私の動画の秘密"
    The last comment (second pic) is especially interesting. She gives the "name" of the elusive "Special VISA" as Teijuusha.
    And I quote: "It is for people who are divorced, been here long time, have no way to get back to their own countries, people with children who go to school here, people with babies. Its a form of permanent residency, but you need to renew it"
    If this VISA is an actual thing she really pulled off some sort of miracle because no way did she have a dire need to stay in Japan such as children or the inability to accustom herself to Canadian life due to being in Japan for years and years.
    Very interesting ....
    (Sorry the 1st comment at the top is actually the last in sequential order of the convo.)

    Official description of the Teijuusha VISA 
    “Long Term Resident” visa is granted for those who are authorized to reside in Japan with designated period of stay by the Minister of Justice taking each applicant’s special situation into consideration. Like other family related visa,this“Long Term Resident” allows you to engage in any kind of work just as Japanese usually do. However, visa extension is still required for this kind of visa holder.This point is quite different from “Permanent Resident” status.
    So what is the said “special situation”? The consultation with our office regarding this kind of visa is mainly by those who fall under the following “special situation”.
    1) Refugees
    2) Descendants of Japanese national by blood
    3) Divorced spouses who are caring their child with Japanese nationality
    4) Parents and children of those “Permanent resident” status and “Spouse/Child of Japanese national”visa holder to live together in Japan
    The types of “special situation” under “Long Term Resident” are not limited to the above example.There are other types of “special situation” stipulated in the official guideline made public by the Minister of Justice.
    Well, it looks like it IS possible for MIRA to have gotten a "special situation" decision. I have no idea how she pulled that off tho.

    Well it must be marriage, right? Because if she were in Japan illegally for any length of time it wouldn't count towards the 5 years I assume? Also, they must have a limit of how long you're allowed to reside outside of Japan (if she was there illegally it would be time counted "outside" of Japan) before the clock starts back at 0 again.

    That makes more sense then. It's not like they can run a morality test on everyone applying for citizenship after all.
    Thanks for your reply @Pearl. Very interesting things to note.
    I am just confused as to how people are saying her Japanese is absolutely horrid; - like "barely understandable", yet she's passed the second hardest language exam in Japan. I understand the concept of "studying for a test" without having much "real-world" ability but it must still be somewhat developed in order to pull that off. Or is she actually a lot better than people are saying?
    Hmmm.

    Wow you learn something new every day. Where did you find out all this information (I mean about Mira's case specifically)? Did she make a video about her paperwork process? I know for a lot of countries it's quite difficult to gain citizenship w/o being married and/or speaking the language at a near fluent level (interview/test scores/etc.) and I may not speak Japanese but from what I gather she isn't that advanced? Maybe it's not checked that strenuously though?
    Even though I have no warm feelings towards MIRA I do hope if she gives up her Canadian citizenship she doesn't regret it later. I wouldn't even wish that on her. I feel like she likes the superficial Japan but doesn't really know the deeper aspects of the culture.
    I also have no idea how she figured out how to get past immigration and work w/o a University degree. (or a high school diploma!) ... AFTER her divorce of course. Shows she's quite manipulative in any case.

    If she's accepted I'll know there's a HUGE flaw in the Japanese immigration system.
    It sounds like she didn't even research the process; which would be one VERY obvious thing to do, for most people. She probably actually thought you get your paperwork in and it's instantly "accepted" not taking into account processing time. She amazes me more and more with her ignorance.

    Thoughts? Do you think she actually applied? Does anyone know the process of Japanese citizenship and can vouch for her comment of it "taking a year 'til accepted"?
