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.

Many expats who arrive in Japan can relate to their first time doing certain things that seem mundane to the average citizen. From my first time going to the supermarket and learning about the vast amount of ingredients that I had never seen before, to the complex yet efficient public transportation system. You never know what kind of things will intrigue, shock or amaze you when you travel or move to another country, and that is what makes it a treasured life experience. I hope we can have a lesson together soon and talk about your experiences traveling abroad and what amazed you.

In my next post, I’ll talk more about my life in Japan and some other adventures I’ve had so far!
