Find Tips and Advice on Japan from British Expats

Of course, expat living in Japan is not just about shipping your belongings and filing in some bureaucratic papers. Regular socializing with fellow British is an essential part of expat life and helps getting accustomed to the Japanese way of life and mentality. InterNations helps you connect and meet up with other British in Japan, residing in Tokyo, Sapporo, the Kansai Region and many other places throughout the country. Just take a look at our group of British in Tokyo or British in Nagoya.

If you ever wish to have a chat in your native language, discover where to shop for British food or discuss your favorite sports team's latest match, become a member of the Japanese InterNations Community:

  • Look up our top quality network to get to know open-minded expats from the UK in Japan.
  • Obtain and share insider tips in our Japan Expat Forums – e.g. how to hire a babysitter fluent in your native tongue for your children or where to get roast beef in Sapporo.
  • Search the InterNations Places database for Japan to get information on institutions from your home country, including the British embassy.

From Shikoku, the smallest island, famous for its 88-temple pilgrimage to the scenic Japanese Alps, we’ll help you connect with supportive and friendly British expats in Japan.
