"to go to live" or "to go live" or "to go and live"?

    I'm Italian and I was wondering if it's grammatically correct to write this sentence "I want to go live in Japan".

    Is it wrong, or is it American English?

    Would it be more correct to write "I want to go to live in Japan"?
    Or maybe "I want to go and live in Japan"?

    Please let me know, and I'm sorry if this sounded like a stupid question.

    'Go and live' and 'go to live' are standard everywhere (with 'and' more common, I think). For me, 'go live' is colloquial AmE only, not something I would ever say.
