What to Expect in Your International Move to Japan

Islands with unique environments and culture make up the country of Japan. This diversity makes Japan a vibrant country that is in the forefront of innovation in technology and fashion sectors. Japan boasts the largest metropolis in the world with over 30 million people living in it’s capital of Tokyo.

The booming economy in Japan is thanks in part to the tech and car industries, including Sony, Honda, and Toyota. Unsurprisingly, an influx of people are relocating to Japan for business. Many parts of Japan offer quite the opposite feel from Tokyo. Miles away from the bustling capital lie many rural cities, towns, and villages where ancient Japanese traditions and customs are alive and well.

The Japanese cultures tends to value education very highly. For those families relocating children from the U.S. to Japan, be prepared for a more competitive school environment than in the United States. School days tend to be longer with less breaks throughout the year making an international relocation to Japan can be a steep adjustment for children. This does not limit the celebratory nature of Japan though! In metropolitan areas going to restaurants, nightclubs, and arcades provide entertainment and places to socialize. Both martial arts and Sumo wrestling are esteemed sports in Japan that are eagerly followed by their fans.

In terms of packing for an international move to Japan, downsizing is the way to go. Minimalism is a highly regarded way of life and most urban dwellers are renters rather than homeowners. For a short-term international move to Japan, or before purchasing a home in Japan, we recommend storing some items as urban apartments can be quite small.
