Application Process

Costs: Contact Paul for the current price at +13609413748. Your next step after registering is to send a short one to two-minute video, holding your phone horizontally and tell me why you want to go to Japan. Send it to me on Signal. Upon receiving the video and acceptance, Paul will give you a detailed checklist to prepare you for everything you need to do. You are responsible for the extra room charges if you are sharing a room with someone who is not participating in the 2 Second Lean Japan Experience. Additional questions? Contact Paul ( or Signal (+13609413748).

What’s not included: Air transportation to and from Japan. Airport transfers on the day of arrival and on the day of departure. Those should only run $20-$30 each way. Most dinners are not included but there will be 2 dinners that we will provide that will be wonderful. Simply put, once you’re in the country, unless you’re a crazy drinker or spender, you should not spend more than $100 – $200 USD. The trip is very comprehensive.
