Default First Eletronic Drums

Hello guys, i'm from Brazil ( sorry for the bad english anyway, at least i'm not using google to translate xD ), and i'll move to Japan in a couple of weeks. So, i'll live in a apartment there, and my acoustic drum will remain here. I was wondering in buy a eletronic kit for me, but i never played in that type before, and I don't know much about brands. So, heres my question, it's easy to accustom ( i don't know if this word is correct xD ) ? I only know brands like Yamaha and Roland, any other brand that i should look ? Which model you guys indicate for me ? I do like to buy a high end stuff, so i came here to not throw my money away. Thanks

I'd say that Yamaha and Roland are the brands to consider. They both sound great, but I find the Roland module easier to navigate.

One word (or acronym rather): VST.

Then you don't have to worry about how good the module sounds.

Thanks for replying. I think i'll go for the Roland. What do you think about the Roland TD-15K-S V-Drums V-Tour Series ? Is the eletornic kits noisy when you hit the pads ?

Depends on what you consider to be "noisy". Obviously they'll be much quieter than a-kits and cymbals.
If making the kit as silent as possible is your priority I would recommend using mesh heads (which the TD-15K already has).
To further reduce noise you could also replace the standard rubber kick drum pad with these:
