The education ministry plans to invite 150 foreign university students who are interested in studying in Japan to join free "trial study trips" to this nation. According to the source, after 3.11 incident, 600 students cancelled their plan studying in Japan. It might be a chance for those who want to study in Japan. http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/dy/national/T111012006453.htm
or, 10,000 Free Flight for Foreigners! (maybe) It is not confirmed by the government budgetary, but it might happen. You should keep checking @ Japan Tourism Agency site.
Good luck to y'all! I wanna apply this....
All things cool from Japan.
