Here's the essential list of things you should consider when you move to Japan, that was mentioned by Aki herself!

// Visa Application:
- Certificate of Eligibility (dependent on the visa you're applying for)
- Passport
- Your personal information: intended accommodation etc.

// When you're in Japan:
- Residency Card (Zairyu Card) upon arrival in Japan
- Signature Stamp (Hanko)
- Bank book
- Pension
- Health Insurance
- MyNumber

Most of us at the TC office has gone through this entire process as well so if you have any questions, don't be afraid to let us know here!!

Thank you Elise for listing everything! ♥

This was a very informative video, really getting to the information that you might not think to ask or know how to research.
Thank you Aki for answering questions I didn't even know I had, in a way that's easy to understand! ♥

Looking forward to seeing more great and informative videos from the creators here!

This was super super helpful! I've made a video like this for the UK and will be making one for Australia as well and a lot of things are similar. Getting a bank account, health insurance, phone number, etc. Paying pension is very standard in these countries as well (though you can get it back if you're not staying permanently).

Again, great video Aki!
