a few questions about living in Japan

  • a few questions about living in Japan

    Hi, I made a post a few months ago about travelling in Japan with a disability. Recently I spoke to a friend who went there (he loved it btw) and that got me wondering:

    1. How old would you say is too old to plan to move over there?

    2. I have seen a lot of mixed thoughts about living there, some people (such as those in this forum) love living there for the most part and yet elsewhere I see a lot of people dispose it. What do you think causes this? Quite confused rn.

    Thanks in advance

    I am definitely one who loves living here, so I cannot comment on the feelings of those who despise it…

    I came when I was 26.  I know a guy who came in his 60s.  I guess the biggest challenge is finding a community.  If you are good at languages (and that does decrease with age…), then you can get into a Japanese community.  If language is a struggle, you can still find a community among expats that can be supportive and fun.

    So, while age may limit your language acquisition ability, you can come here at any age Smiley
