Located in the Pacific Ocean, Japan is made up of over 3,000 different islands, however, the main four — Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu and Shikoku — account for 97% of the total area. Tokyo, the financial and political capital of Japan, is really unlike any other city you’ll live in. There is a fascinating blend of high-technology and tradition and, while it is a huge, heavily-populated place, you’ll be pleased to discover the abundant greenery in some parts. Cost of living in Japan can be very high and accommodation to suit foreign standards is expensive. However, the people here are polite, quiet and helpful and there really is something for everyone. If you decide to move to Japan, you’ll have a truly enriching cultural experience.
