3 SMART QUESTIONS
Is it a good time to move to Japan?
Despite the global slow-down, resilient Japan is striving to get things back in order, quickly. Japan is on the road to economic recovery more than most other industrialized nations with a strong currency that is only getting stronger. This means more companies hiring and more job opportunities.
Will it be difficult to find employment in Japan?
The Japanese understand the importance of having an international community and foreign workers - especially in trying times. This is why the Japanese government grants so many work visas. If you have something to offer and meet Japan's prerequisites, then Japan will grant you some type of work visa - simply because they know your services are needed.
Isn't Japan's cost of living quite high?
When it comes to the cost of living, Japan has gotten a bad rap. Japan has had about a decade of mild deflation, which means prices have remained virtually unchanged for the past 10+ years. In fact, prices for most consumer goods are actually cheaper than prices in the west. When you add deflation to an attractive salary, abundant free-lance work and a powerful yen, you soon realize that not only can you make ends meet but you also have a healthy discretionary income.
