Tokyo Japan Life Tips

Beneficial, profitable and practical information for Tokyo/Japan life in English for the English-speaking people living and visiting Tokyo and even people who just want to know about Tokyo/Japan anywhere in the world

I've lived in Tokyo now for 18 years since I got back from US.
I went to college in the States about 20 years ago, and when I remember back, what I needed the most was the information.
The only information source for me at that time when internet was not in people's life was just friends.

So, I decided to write about Tokyo life and what I think about living, visiting, enjoying, working, and even raising kids in Japan.
