Publisher Comments:

Highlighting the cities, towns, and islands surrounding Tokyo, the temperate farms of rural Hokkaido, and the central mountains of Honshu, this handbook shows how to take the plunge and live in Japan. The kit provides an instant vocabulary of 1,000 Japanese words and offers tips on deciphering Japanese housing ads.

Synopsis:

Imagine yourself living in Japan. You head home past vendors selling ramen to a traditional wood house, open your sliding door, and take off your shoes before stepping onto your tatami mats. You know the locals and speak Japanese with ease. You show visiting friends around with the confidence of one who belongs. Author Ruth Kanagy shows you how to make your dream take shape. She left her life as a Japanese teacher in America to live in Japan. While some give up—daunted by the financial, bureaucratic, and decision-making issues that accompany a move so extraordinary—you'll be led step-by-step through the information you need on visas, money, jobs, housing, safety, language, culture, and history. Ruth has done the research and made the mistakes—so you don't have to. There's a place that matches your budget, needs, and dreams: perhaps it's an apartment in the urban mecca of Tokyo, a seaside abode in the Hokkaido prefecture, or a home in the slow paced and traditional island of Shikoku. You can make it happen. With Living Abroad in Japan, it's easier than you think.
