Living in Tokyo
Living in Tokyo is the dream of many, but every Tokyoite knows that things can be rough for foreign residents. After the initial thrill, city life can wear you down. Whether you’re single or come with a family in tow, there are many unique challenges involved in moving to Japan that you may have not considered before.
Do you have kids? Well, you’re going to have to find a school for them to attend. And whether you’re reading bedtime stories or keeping yourself awake with the latest thriller, you’re going to need to find a source of books. And what if you need a sitter?
Things can be just as difficult for the singles. Maybe you’ve had a hard day and just want to order food to come to you. But how? Also, you’re practicing your Japanese and want to socialize in a neighborhood bar, but you don’t know how to break the ice.
Luckily for you, our writers come from all over and have been in Japan for decades. Let us help you cope with Living in Tokyo!
