Publisher's Description

This guidebook to Japan is a great way to gain understanding of how to function while being new to Japan. This is an excellent book if you are traveling to Japan to further your professional career or moving to make a new life for yourself. The first few chapters in Living in Japan outlines each step throughout the adaptations of being a foreigner in Japan from arrival, culture shock, settling in, to coping, then blending in.

Eliminate the shock of being immersed in one of the most unique cultures in the hectic modern world, from finding housing to finding work, and from adjusting to the expatriate community to the many challenges of making a way into the heart of Japanese society and culture. Living in Japan, authors Norton and Shibusawa explored the opportunities for foreigners in Japan, analyzing the problems that are likely to be encountered. In this book they offer practical solutions and advice to make the most out of an extended stay in Japan.

This guide enthusiastically negotiates the potential roadblocks and pitfalls facing expatriate businessmen, children, traditional homemakers, students, and working couples and highlights the many opportunities for a rich and lasting experience. And finally, Living in Japan offers helpful hints to ease the transition if expatriates returning from Japan to their native lands, where they face a culture shock as strong as that they experiences upon first making their way to Japan.
