Welcome To Japan!
We're here to help you

Support Areas

We provide support in the following categories.

Health & Medical

The Health and Medical section covers a variety of important topics and provides essential resources, such as the structure of the Japanese healthcare system, downloadable bilingual patient intake forms, and popular over-the-counter medications, complete with dosage, instructions, and ingredients in English

Personal Care

The Personal Care section covers the products that people use every day. It can be hard to navigate things such as shampoo, toothpaste, or menstrual products when you’re unfamiliar with the brands or language the packaging is written in.
There is a comprehensive list of popular items in each category, complete with picture, description, and intended use.

Daily life

The Daily Life section covers the aspects of every-day life that may take some guidance. You can learn everything from how to use a laundromat or your own washing machine, to where you can buy home goods, to what services the Japan Postal Service offers.
