NihongoShark is in the process of migrating to NativShark.
All of our old website articles are being rewritten and formatted into lessons. This particular lesson you're looking for will now be a phase one extra credit lesson.
Here's a summary:
Decide if you really want to live in Japan, do visa research, get a job (any job, probably as a teacher to get your foot in the door), find temporary accomodation, go! Once you're there, grab a phone, open a bank account, register at your ward office, make friends, and don't stop learning Japanese.
This lesson is coming soon! Check back later
But in the meantime...
We're releasing new lessons and tools every week.
