Permanent Residence to Japanese national?

Recently, a friend who has been living in Japan on a permanent residence visa for 20 years has been getting letters from Immigrations asking why he has not become a Japanese national yet. I have a couple more years before I reach my 20 year status. Will I too be ask politely to change my nationality?

    I know a lot of people on spouse visas who, every time they renew, get asked when they are planning to change to permanent residence. So this is the step after that then? I guess even the authorities want to whittle down the paper work!

    First time i heard about this being asked to apply for japanese nationality. Because i believe they are verystrict when itcomes to applying for japanese citizenship. Aside from staying long enough here you alsohave to pass certain test to prove you are eligible to be a japanese citizen.

Akita/Niigata in March

I´m planing to visit the Akita and Niigata prefecture at the end of March. What about the weather during that season? Is it still snowing? If yes how about the train situation? I guess because those prefectures are used to snow there will be no problem... Some experience of people living in these areas will be helpful!
