Enjoy living and working in Tokyo

Are you an expat living in Tokyo? You will surely come across many questions, such as ʺWhat documents does the Japanese aliens department require for a work permit?”, ʺIs a bow or a handshake the acceptable way of greeting a Japanese person?ʺ, or ”What can other expats recommend for postal services in town?”

Looking for all of the information that is important for living and working in Tokyo can take you hours. However, by using our Tokyo expat guide you can greatly simplify your relocation to Tokyo. Beginning with housing and household to tips about food & shopping - the guide deals with all the different facets of the expat life in Tokyo.

However, InterNations does not only address expats in Tokyo. We have brief overview guides for various locations around the world – from live in Barcelona to living in London.
