      I am Filipino from Davao City, Philippines. I am travelling with my family leaving Manila for Tokyo Narita on April 17. We stay until May 4 (17 N 18 D) onward to Honolulu. I just received yesterday my Japanese tourist visa and it was just for 15 days to expire May 7, 2020. My family has 5 years multiple entry visa. We already have confirmed plane tickets.

      Is it possible for me to request for an extension of 5 days?

      Thank you.
