Those looking to relocate to Japan, but are stressing about arranging visas, finding the perfect school for the kids and scouring online portals for the ideal accommodation, should enlist the services of a trusted relocation company, which will take care of all of the above, and more.

Relocation businesses offer companies and individuals one-stop solutions, including everything from pre-departure admin to neighbourhood orientation, home and school-finding services, lease negotiation and utility hookups. Faced with the added culture shock of a new language, we recommend expats moving to Japan consider a relocation firm, such as the ones listed below, rather than going through the whole process alone.
