I'm trying to place an image besides the maketitle command without messing it up, but after a lot of trial and error, I have something that just partially resembles what I'm going for and the source is a mess.

I'm trying to make it look like this (Normal maketitle, added image in acrobat after)

I'm trying to make it look like this (Normal maketitle, added image in acrobat after)

But right now, this is as close as I can get it (also, notice how there's this big space between the top of the image and the content):

this is the code used for the latter image. If someone know of a better method/package or some other way to do this better, please let me know.

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{geometry}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[normalem]{ulem}
\usepackage{wrapfig}
\usepackage{titling}

\newcommand{\middlewavefill}[1]{\begin{center}{\raisebox{0.5em}{\uwave{\hspace{#1}}}}\end{center}}

\geometry{
    a4paper,
    total={170mm,257mm},
    left=20mm,
    top=20mm,
    margin=15mm,
}

\title{My life in Japan}
\date{Mal}
\author{Name}

\pretitle{
    \hspace{5cm}
    \begin{wrapfigure}{l}{1cm}
        \includegraphics[width=6cm]{japanFlag}
    \end{wrapfigure}
    \centering \huge
}
\posttitle{
    \vspace{1cm}
}

\begin{document}

    \begin{figure}[!t]

        \maketitle
    \end{figure}
    \middlewavefill{18cm}

\end{document}

You can put \maketitle inside a minipage and use \raisebox to align the image. Also, you don't HAVE to use \maketitle. it is supposed to be a convenience, not an obstacle.

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}
%\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}% not with my editor
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{geometry}
%\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[normalem]{ulem}
\usepackage{wrapfig}
\usepackage{titling}

\newcommand{\middlewavefill}[1]{\begin{center}{\raisebox{0.5em}{\uwave{\hspace{#1}}}}\end{center}}

\geometry{
    a4paper,
    total={170mm,257mm},
    left=20mm,
    top=20mm,
    margin=15mm,
}

\title{My life in Japan}
\date{Mal}
\author{Name}


\begin{document}
  \noindent\raisebox{-\height}{\includegraphics[width=6cm]{example-image}}\hfill
  \begin{minipage}[t]{\dimexpr \textwidth-6cm-\columnsep}
     \maketitle
  \end{minipage}

  \middlewavefill{18cm}

\end{document}
