Living in another country can be often exciting, fun, and even down-right terrifying, and Japan is not exempt from this rule. What is Japan like outside of its popular culture? What is Japan like living there instead of visiting? Cosplaying and Anime in Japan, Uchi and Soto, Geisha and Maiko, Budgeting, Job search, Food, Music (Fanclubs, Lives and Karaoke), Kansai-ben vs. Tokyo-ben, Sub-Cultures and other aspects of Japanese culture and how-tos will be covered and discussed. Get some realistic insight on how Japanese Culture differs from the Western perspective of Japan versus how Japanese Culture is inside of Japan as well as survival skills needed for those seeking a job, school, or a place to live in the Land of the Rising Sun. You will also have the chance to learn some of the "dos" and "don'ts" needed for a Gaikokujin to survive as well as ways to cope with Culture Shock and Reverse Culture Shock. Please feel free to ask any questions about visiting, studying, traveling, or living in Japan.
