Tips and Advice on Turkey from Your Fellow Japanese Expats

Obviously, expat life in Turkey 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 Turkish mentality and way of life. Japanese in Turkey are a part of our community, calling cities such as Ankara, Antalya, Istanbul, and many others home. You can use InterNations to look for fellow Japanese in Istanbul, for example.
