As someone that planned and organized their working holiday stay in Japan on their own I took a look at what kind of services these agencies offer and provide my opinion whether it’s a good investment or whether you should rather spend the money for traveling while in Japan.
If you follow the rules and try hard to fit in, your transition into a Japanese company can go very smoothly.
Japan is a country of tradition. While that has led to it preserving its culture for generations, the adherence to tradition has some downsides. One of these downsides is the attitude towards people with tattoos.
Often you hear that Japan is one of the safest countries in the world. I had an experience right after I moved to Japan that made me wonder whether that is true.
Have you ever considered working in Japan, but are not sure whether the Japanese working culture would suit you? Internships are a nice way of trying out working in Japan for a limited time. Some even come with the chance of a job offer after the internship.
With such a proverbial melting-pot of cultures, creeds, languages and ideals, the term “foreigner” really doesn’t do this societal group justice.
I think that Japan’s amazing and well-priced makeups really had more to do with turning me into a hardcore fan of cosme, or cosmetics in Japanese. Whether you are a seasoned Japan visitor or are coming for the first time, here are five affordable makeup brands that you should check out!
So, what about those like me who choose to stay in Japan despite the seeming adversity? Why have we been here for so long and why will we continue here?
For as long as I can remember, Japan has, rightfully I believe, laid claim to being one of the safest and most secure countries in the world. Is this still the case, and in an increasingly interconnected world, how long can this continue?
This country I have grown to love deeply over the past 10 years is today also radically different in a number of ways. Some of the changes have undoubtedly been for the better, others perhaps not so much. However, I still retain the same sense of hope and optimism today as I think about Japan’s future that I had in my heart 10 years ago.
