Tokyo Podcast 16: Surviving in Japan

Moving to a new country and living an expat life can be one of the most rewarding and frustrating things to do, sometimes at the same time! The thrill of experiencing something new and exotic can quickly be replaced with the frustration of struggling to accomplish the most basic of tasks.

Our guest today is Ashley Thompson who runs a website called ‘Surviving in Japan without much Japanese’. On her website she offers all sorts of valuable tips on setting up your new life in Japan. She recently had her first child and joins us to talk about her experience in giving birth in Japan.

Anthony also talks about his recent visit to Mount Takao and how nice it was to get out of the city to enjoy a day in the mountains.
