A lot of people ask how I live in Japan, and the best answer that I could come up with is that I cheat.
One area where it was really easy for me was with my Visa, and later on, permanent residency.
- Japan Permanent Resident Application
- Japan Permanent Residency Rules
- Japan Visa Application
- Japan Visa Document Requirements
Because my wife is Japanese and we’ve been married a while, the applications were relative fast and easy. It was a hassle to get some of the documents, but we didn’t run into any major issues through the whole process.
Really what the whole video was about, was that I feel quite lucky to have all the opportunities that I have, and the people in my life that I do. I realize that not everyone has what I enjoy. So I feel like I’m cheating at this whole living in Japan thing.
