Tips and Advice on Malaysia from Your Fellow Japanese Expats

Obviously, expat life in Malaysia goes well beyond shipping your belongings and taking care of red tape. Socializing with fellow Japanese is an important facet of living abroad and can be a huge stepping stone in getting to know the Malaysian mentality and way of life. Japanese in Malaysia are a part of our community, calling cities such as Kuantan, George Town, Kuala Lumpur, and many others home. You can use InterNations to look for fellow Japanese in Kuala Lumpur, for example.

Wondering where to shop for Japanese delicatessen, want to discuss your national team's latest match, or simply talk to someone in your native language? Become a member of the Malaysian InterNations Community!

  • Our network is the best place to meet expats from Japan.
  • On the Malaysia Expat Forums, you can get competent answers to all your expat-related questions: how to find a babysitter fluent in your mother tongue, where to get sushi and sashimi in Kuala Lumpur, etc.
  • The InterNations Places database for Malaysia has information on the nearest Japanese embassy and many other institutions.

From the topical rainforests (two of which are World Heritage Sites) to the urban agglomeration of the Klang Valley, you can meet supportive and friendly Japanese expats in Malaysia on InterNations.

Meet and Mingle with Fellow Japanese in Malaysia
