Living in Japan is a complete travel guide for foreigners currently living in Japan or contemplating making a home there. From the great expectations before arrival to the shock of actually being immersed in one of the most unique cultures in the hectic modern world, from finding housing to finding work, and from adjusting to the expatriate community to the many challenges of making a way into the heart of Japanese society and culture, Living in Japan will help the reader cope with the vagaries, anxieties, and uncertainties of an expatriate existence. Authors Norton and Shibusawa explore the opportunities for foreigners in Japan, analyze the problems they're likely to encounter, offer practical solutions and advice to make the most out of an extended stay in Japan. This Japan guide enthusiastically negotiates the potential roadblocks and pitfalls facing expatriate businessmen, children, traditional homemakers, students, and working couples and highlights the many opportunities for a rich and lasting experience. And finally, Living in Japan offers helpful hints to ease the transition if expatriates returning from Japan to their native lands, where they face a culture shock as strong as that they experiences upon first making their way to Japan.
