Can I just show up to a synagogue?

Hey. I’m Jewish by blood and used to study with my grandma when I was a kid. My dad didn’t. Now I’m in my 30s and I’ve been more and more interested in connecting back with God.

Do you think it is too late to become a jew? Is there something you recommend doing before going to a synagogue? I was going to call before hand, but maybe I should read the Talmud or something? Would it be more appropriate to study/practice on my own instead of trying to join the community?

Please forgive the dumb questions. I know that it’s asking a lot of strangers to answer questions that are very context dependent and personal, but I’ve been feeling lost the last few years. (Little context: I live in Japan and there are only 2 synagogues near me.)
