Our platform started after hearing dozens of foreigners, from all nationalities and walks of life, ask the same question: "How can I start a life in Japan?" Some were motivated by a passion for the country, others by family reasons but all were facing the same issue: the lack of insights on how to get started. The paperwork-heavy administration, complex layers in interpersonal communication, extensive language nuances and a very unique culture quickly add up, forming an overwhelming amount of challenges. In a similar situation, there is nothing more valuable than listening to the feedbacks of people who went through the exact same process, walked the exact same paths and found their way through the maze. Often very personal ways. To share the knowledge of foreigners who built a successful life in Japan!
This is our mission. We are here to help others achieve the same dream. While a few great blogs and platforms also understood this need and specialised in niche areas like startups & entrepreneurship, we chose diversity. We decided to share the stories of foreigners only, all from many different backgrounds, for one reason: one's dream is made of multiple threads and inspiration can be found in many stories.
