I am looking to visit Japan soon, but I am conflicted about how long I want to stay in the country (within the 90 day Tourist visit), and when I will be going. I would love to stay the full 90 days, but I would like to go for a shorter period of time, the first time I go.
I have read that people have gotten flagged for going to Japan, then another country, and back to Japan again within a few month period. I have heard you are only given entry a few times (I heard 3), as a tourist (even though I read recently someone just got back from their 12th trip). So I am not sure what is true, and if you can only go so many times.
So my questions are, are there limitations to how long you have to wait before going back to Japan, and are there limits to the amount of times one can visit the country?
I figured if I can only go a few times total, and cannot do it within x amount of time I would maximize my stay, but if I could go twice within the next 8 or so months then I would rather do that.
Note I was thinking November for a few weeks, and then February or so the second time, so I'm not sure if that is enough time between the 2.
