How To Find A Job In Japan

Monday February 03, 2020 (11:19:29)

Japan remains a popular choice among expat workers: it is prosperous, safe, and has an interesting culture. But how easy is it to find work in this Asian nation?

Monday May 20, 2019 (09:48:33)

So Much More Than Sushi: A Culinary Tour Of Japan

Monday June 18, 2018 (08:45:14)

Japan's geographical location sits in the middle of four bodies of water. In addition, it has a temperate climate, sufficient rainfall and fertile soil for agricultural farming and fishing, all of which provide a wealth of food sources for the country. A world-leading commercial fishing industry means seafood constitutes the base for dishes eaten by local people, alongside regionally grown rice, soybeans and vegetables. A meal often consists of steamed white rice, miso soup and a few side dishes (okazu) such as pickled vegetables.
