Tokyo 101: An Expat’s Guide to Living in Japan

Relocating to a new country can be thrilling and nerve-racking in equal measure.


To help you start making the most of your adopted home, Connections’ two-day orientation is designed to offer an overview of life in Japan and plenty of advice from locals and seasoned expats.

With presentations on a range of key subjects (see list below), from healthcare and culture to food and disaster preparedness, and opportunities to ask questions, this program also enables newcomers to mingle and make connections.

In fact, Tokyo 101 attendees can expand their social circle further when they attend the Welcome Back Cocktails event on September 29.

Both days include a light breakfast and buffet lunch.

Sign up today and start thriving in Japan!
