Members assist Members in the Japan Expat Forums

Our trust-based community was developed to help expatriates in Japan swap suggestions and advice on all expat-relevant enquiries, e.g., ʺDo I really need business cards for every meeting or professional encounter?ʺ or ʺIs a bow or a handshake the acceptable way of greeting a Japanese person?ʺ. In a community that’s all about expat living in Japan, from sushi and sashimi to Tennō Tanjōbi, the participants of the expat forum Japan can find fellow expats and internationally minded locals to receive trustworthy and up-to-date responses. On the InterNations Expat Forum for Japan, there will always be another expat member to make life abroad easier.

From business etiquette to cultural etiquette: The Expat Forum Japan leaves no Question unanswered

If you require even more information on expat topics like restaurants and nightlife in Tokyo or housing and household in Sapporo, you could also browse our Japan Expat Guide, another useful resource in addition to the expat forums. Moreover, in our World Forum you can talk about international politics, intercultural and interracial relationships, third-culture kids and other general expat issues. However, for expat assistance on all local matters - from business etiquette to cultural etiquette - just join the InterNations Japan expat forums.
