Zarbaraki

I came to Japan after graduating with a social science degree and an anxious sense of "what do I do with my life?". Somehow I'm still here and haven't yet figured it out. This blog ranges from my experiences on the JET program, where I was placed in Ibaraki prefecture in 2013, to where I currently am: a salarywoman in Tokyo. This blog is a collection of my embarrassing misadventures and is in the tone of "the voice in your head" in the key of "a whiny sarcastic British person".

Jordy Meow - Offbeat Japan

I enjoy exploring the 99% of Japan that most guidebooks and websites don't talk about. Why don't they? Maybe because they are too mysterious, too scary or simply too remote. The truth is that those places are so enchanting that it is difficult to come back. I am sharing those special places with you.

Direction Japan

20 years work in japan Whether you are a seasoned executive moving to Japan for a short-term expat contract or a long-term resident in Japan changing to a management position this site is for you. I am a French citizen currently living in Japan and I will try to share with you my soon-to-be 20 years experience in Japan, mostly in foreign companies. But WHY? I saw in 20 years so many companies failing in Japan for obvious but simple reasons. I am currently the representative director for a small European company. I was headhunted when the company had only 4 employees but was losing more than 1 Mio EURO and was crippled by debt... it was few years ago. Today we will reach soon 20 employees, are debt free, profitable and even paying dividends to the headquarters. And the business is growing very well. So HOW? My intention is to address in each post a specific issue, sometimes illustrated by a real-life story or experience. At the end of each post I will give some down-to-earth Hints (not advices as I believe you will have to judge by yourself what to do in your own context). Feel free to contact me if you need more insight on a specific issue. So now enjoy the reading.
