ask a professional 2007/11/7 02:53
Immigration Bureau of Japan could help you or give you any advice you would need. You can also go there to ask about your visa for staying in Japan with your mother and your step-father.

There are offices that help foreigners (non-Japanese) with visas to stay in Japan as well. They take care of almost everything about your visa and they also could help you.
Here is just one of them: http://m-sato.gyosei.or.jp/

Visas are very important to stay in a country, and I think you should get any advice from the immigration bureau of Japan or someone who knows about the visas very well like the one above.

Good luck!

Visa 2007/11/7 08:47
Vicky,

Depending on your nationality, you may not need a visa. Check the details on this website, the Japanese Immigration website, or contact your local Japanese embassy for confirmation.
