Your Friendly Ban Hammer-er
You can go to school there and learn animation, art, etc: Yoyogi Animation Gakuin and Nihon Kogakuin College. There's some more school links in the Resource page (More > Resource). There's also a travel agency based in California - forgot the name - that does themed packages for trips to Japan.
Dude, you live in USA, the best place on earth to learn about animation and drawing. And you want to learn from Japan? wtf?

Yeah, man, it's totally not worthwhile to experience a different culture and get a taste of the outside world, maybe broaden your horizons a little. What are you thinking?

yeah i wish i live in USA too. but hey if you guys live in my country and you have a money for this. you'll probably try it too.
Manga originates from Japan,so it's good to learn their 'original version' as the country is best in manga and anime now,in the world。。。to improve yourself a level higher.Plus Japan is good in teaching,as what statistics show...
So,it's worthy to go there and learn a few things before coming back.
Yeah, there is no other place in the world with something similar to mangas. Oh wait, they are, Europe has a full history of graphic narration that come even before Medieval times.
And Manga is the same as comic, I'm tired of people calling them as something different. Both use image, both use dialogues, both have the ame estructure, the is no real difference appart of the place were they are done.
Also yeah japan is great to learn, how many suicides are per year at cause of the education system they have? And if you ask me, USA, many European countries, and others are way better places to learn.
If the idea of learning from other culture sounds great, then I invite everyone to come here to learn about art. Because who cares the quality of the place were you are learning, it's the cultural experiensse what you want. I don't understand when you have everything you need at the doors of your house and uou don't pick it, maybe because I don't have that luck.
