Relocating to Japan【日本への移住】
Hello everyone! This is Taylor Foxworth from Hankyu Umeda Learning Studio! I’m excited to share more of my life experience with you in this post today. Today I wanted to talk to you all about my experience of relocating to Japan from the United States. When I was living in the United States, I worked in the legal field and it was an extremely stressful field to work in. So, in 2018, I decided to move to Japan to gain more life experience and also get a little break from the industry I was working in.
I had lived in the United States for most of my life and had little chance to travel growing up, so the idea of moving across the world seemed like a grand adventure. So, I began the process of applying for a visa and it was a mountain of paperwork. On top of that, arranging my apartment lease while out of the country was also a great challenge. Finally, everything fell into place and I had my visa, apartment lease, and plane ticket. The flight was about eighteen hours and my adventures began the moment I got off the plane.
In my next post, I’ll talk more about my life in Japan and some other adventures I’ve had so far!
