Visa has created a new handbook  - The Expat’s Guide to Japan - prepared especially for foreigners living and working in Japan. The free guide provides a wealth of useful information for newcomers to Japan.

From information on where to find accommodation, grocery shops and public transport to the local card acceptance and bill payment environment, the guide covers all the essentials of modern day living in Japan. The guide also includes tips on recommended shopping outlets, where to eat, local cultural pursuits and sightseeing. In addition there are details on international schools and hospitals where expatriates and their families can consult with English speaking health-care professionals.

James J. Allhusen, Visa’s General Manager for Japan, said, “Beginning in September 2004, we launched the ‘Visit Japan with Visa’ program, which offered a broad selection of information, along with introductions to various special benefits for people visiting Japan. From a payments point of view, we are actively engaged in sharing information that gives visitors peace of mind with the knowledge that they can access a convenient and secure international payment infrastructure while in Japan.”

In Tokyo, The Expat’s Guide to Japan is available from Minato City Office (formerly the Minato Ward Office), the Daiei supermarket in Himonya, National Azabu supermarket in Minami-Azabu, the NISSIN World Delicatessen in Higashi-Azabu, and the Pororoca supermarket in Shirokanedai.

In Yokohama, the guide can be obtained at Union Motomachi in the Motomachi area.

A PDF version of the guide can be downloaded from the Visit Japan with Visa website.
