1st Expat Expo Tokyo — A fair for international residents on November 6-7

By October 31, 2020 No Comments

Approximately 580,000 foreigners are living, working and studying in Tokyo and the number is increasing. Various measures by the government and firms, including the new statuses of residence, “Specified Skilled Worker” and “Highly-Skilled Foreign Professionals,” have accelerated the trend.

However, not enough information about living in Japan has been available to foreign nationals due to language and cultural barriers. Managers from multinational corporations are looking for ways to collect such information for their international employees.

In response to these demands, the 1st Expat Expo Tokyo 2020 will be held with support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Minato Ward in Tokyo, aiming to create an opportunity for international residents to find English-friendly services provided by local businesses, governments and associations under one roof.

Venue: Tokyo World Gate, Kamiyacho Trust Tower 2 Fl
