Regular socializing with fellow French 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 French in Japan, residing in Tokyo, Sapporo, the Kansai Region and many other places throughout the country. Just take a look at our group of French in Tokyo or French in Nagoya.

  • Look up our top quality network to get to know open-minded expats from France in Japan.

  • Search the InterNations Places database for Japan to get information on institutions from your home country, including the French 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 French expats in Japan.
