    Hi,

    I love Japan and my big Dream is to live there! But I guess it is difficult to move especially when you need lot of help everyday :( Has someone Tips or how I can start?

    Thank you so much :)

    Best wishes Julia

    Hello,

    First of all, it is possible!  I (Josh) use attendant care and have moved here.  As a resident of your city, you are entitled to the same services as everyone else, including public welfare.

    You need to get in the country though.  To become resident of a city, you must be legally allowed to reside in the country – this means a visa.  Visas have a couple of types: student, working, spouse etc.  And they all require a sponsor (a school, employer, spouse, etc).  

    So before working through the logistics of personal care, you will need a way into the country.  Do you have any leads in that area?

    Of course I was surprised as well because there is just blank now ^^ I love Japanese Culture and Products more than here in Germany ^^ I only have a High School graduation but of course I would love to help and do mostly everything to give something back for the Society but I guess of course you won’t get a Visa if you don’t have a Job or Relatives there :( but it is logical <3

    Thank you very much for your Reply and Encouragement :)

    For the most part, you need a college degree for work visas here.  But maybe you could consider coming as a student?  A student also gets the same services.

    Have you visited Japan before?

    Keep the questions coming!  And also feel free to share any useful information you find!

    I highly recommend you visit before planning on living here though.  I visited 4 times.  It helps you build a network of people who will be invaluable later.
