• Is it really true that Japan is very discriminatory towards foreigners?

    I just got back from spending 3 weeks in Tokyo, and the friendliness and gratuity of these people just about moved me tears.

    I just got back from spending 3 weeks in Tokyo, and the friendliness and gratuity of these people just about moved me tears. Numerous times, I would have strangers stop and try to help me when they saw me looking at a map, was always served with a smile in business establishments (In fact, I was leaving an arcade once, and I had someone hand me a strip of free tokens and say "Please stay"). Even the police were friendly and polite! So where are all these stories about stores with signs on the doors saying "No foreigners allowed/Japanese Only/We will not serve you if you do not speak Japanese/etc.", or employees shouting "OUT!" and pointing to the door when you come in a restaurant, or people insulting you in the streets and cops stopping you 10 times a day and demanding your passport? I didn't experience ANY of that!

  • Being a 5'6" female would I look really tall in Japan?

    Best answer: The average height of Japanese men has increased by several inches since WWII, largely due to better year-round nutrition. I was on a subway in Japan once with a friend who is 5'8". She was a little bit taller than many of the people, but not a lot. I wasn't. You won't stand out that much.

  • What does the Japanese government do with defectors from North Korea that escape to Japan?

    Best answer: Extremely few make it to Japan. Almost every last one of them makes it to China. Japan would *never* force them back to North Korea, especially will all the kidnappings and slimy crap North Korea has done to Japanese in the past.

    Best answer: Only YOU can decide that . I have a friend who has lived there with his Japanese wife for over 20 years . He said if he had the chance to do things over , he would have never left the US .
    You need to have a love of Japan , her people and culture . Not an easy task .
    You will always be looked at as a gaijin by most people , a outsider .
    To work there you need to have at least a BA degree and a job offer before you get there . Most people teach English . And most of them get burned out after a year or two and quit . You don't always get a choice of where you teach or whom . It could be 5 year old kids , or bored 45 year old housewives who have nothing else better to do .
    Most Japanese don't speak English . Most everything will be in Japanese . If you're lucky , romaji .
    I'd love it there . You , go for a visit for as long as you can . Japan isn't the promised land . She has a lot of problems . And many are worried about North Korea bombing them .
