Correct usage of TOKI NI

I was hoping someone could help me with the word toki.

Is it correct to  use the TA form of a verb to express: when I....
For example:

When i was in japan – nihon ni ita toki ni sake o nomimashita

When i went to japan – nihon ni itta toki ni sake o nomimashita
When i worked in japan – nihon ni hataraita toki ni....
When i lived in japan – nihon ni sunda toki ni.....
 

These examples are past tense but could I use the same structure for future tense, such as:

When I go to Japan I will drink sake - nihon ni itta toki ni sake o nomimasu

yoroshiku onegaishimasu

Toki can be used with any form of verb.
