Working in Japan – Tell us what you really think?

Talk to four foreigners about their work in Japan, and you will likely get five different answers. You have the newbies in the honeymoon stage, disgruntled workers, lifers like myself and everything in between.

We put together a survey so that you can give your insight to employers and job seekers as to what the truth is.  Once the data is in, you will find out how your situation stacks up against other foreigners working in Japan. We would really like to hear more about you, your experience here and get your feedback, which should make for some interesting findings.

(We got word that the survey provider software is a bit slow and clunky so bear with us).

Instead of offering respondents a small reward or the very unlikely chance of winning a prize such as an airline ticket or off-season hotel room, we are going to make a donation to a charity for each completed response. A list is at the end of the survey.

Here is the link to the survey

Additionally, all respondents living in Japan will receive a 1,000 yen off coupon at Domino’s Pizza Japan (, and one free admission to a Kokusaika International Party (

Your personal information is confidential and absolutely will not be shared with any third party. We appreciate your taking the time to complete the survey.
