Moving to Japan . Expatriating and living in Japan

 

Cradle of one of the most fascinating civities in the world, for culture and tradition, Japan, always has that image of a balanced nation, "zen". With one of the most interesting history of the Asian continent, and the cult of simplicity, it is still one of the most desired nation in the world. 

Every year, in fact, many are the tourists who want to move permanently to Japan, or simply stay for a short time and enjoy fully all its beauties. 
What if we told you that, today, buying a property in Japan is worthwhile? Are you not sure? Well, then you just have to relax and read with us the next lines. We have in fact created a mini guide tailored for you, to allow you to solve any questions and, above all, to make you take this step in total tranquility! 

               

So, if you are ready and armed with paper and pen, we can start! 

Let's start with the basics, with the documents necessary to leave and, above all, access Japan! Mandatory is the passport, valid, while the visa is secondary, required only if you intend to stay in the country for more than 90 days (or for reasons other than purely tourist). 

After passing the administrative hurdle, let's get to the heart of our guide. One of the most important problems that you encounter when you decide to visit a foreign place, is that related to the local language. In Japan, as is well known, the national language is Japanese, a complex and unique language. This, however, does not translate into a last-minute race to an accelerated Japanese course. A solid knowledge of the English language is enough to solve any communication problem! 

Another question that often afflicts our readers is represented by the economic conditions in which a country finds itself. Will it be better to move to Japan? What will be the cost of living? Questions that are more than legitimate, that are about to be answered! We have decided to include a small list of the prices of goods and services typical of the basket of goods.  Let's remember that, in Japan, the currency in force is the Yen, which corresponds to 0.0085 euros.

Meal, Cheap Restaurant 900.00 ¥    
Meal for 2 People, Medium Restaurant, Three-Course ¥4,000.00    
Menu from McDonalds (or equivalent menu) ¥680.00    
Domestic beer (0.5L draught) ¥400.00    
Milk (normal), (1L) ¥184,75    
Fresh white bread loaf (500g) ¥192.84    
Rice (white), (1kg) 500,25 ¥    
Eggs (normal) (12) 225,24 ¥    
Local cheese (1kg) ¥ 1,679.32    
One way ticket (local transport) ¥ 210.00    
Monthly subscription (full price) ¥10,000.00    


What about real estate? Again, we have the answers for you! 
If you intend to sign a lease agreement, prices start at ¥58,828.47 per month. Otherwise, for contracts of sale, we speak of 485,138.88 ¥ per square meter.
What can I say, we hope that our mini guide has been useful. All you have to do is discover Japan!
