The blog Surviving in Japan isn’t just a blog, it’s basically a how-to guide on how to do ANYTHING in Japan. It’s not just “how to use the train,” it’s actually important things like finding toothpaste, haircare, going to the doctor and buying feminine products. This site is not just for ryugakusei but for any expat who lives in Japan.

Whether you’re new, still learning Japanese, or even an experienced Japan resident, Surviving in Japan covers common problems expats and travelers face in Japan, but goes one step further to provide unique how-tos and uncommon resources you won’t find anywhere else.
