Tokyo can sometimes be a difficult place for foreigners to navigate – especially if you don’t speak the language. I came across this helpful call line offered by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government for foreigners living in (or just moved to) Japan. They offer advice and phone consultations in English, Chinese, and Korean about daily life, adjusting to the culture or customs of Japan, resources for children and family, if you get into a traffic accident, and anything else you could think of! I would be completely lost in Tokyo if it weren’t for my husband, but now I can probably take some pressure off of him with this call line!
