Raising kids in Japan

Hello everyone,

How is raising kids in Japan different from raising kids in your home country?

What are the activities that your kids seem to enjoy the most in Japan?

Do you feel that the country is "family-friendly"?

Do you recommend Japan as a good place to raise kids? Why or why not?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


Raising my son here in japan is very difficult because he can’t speak the language and his very shy boy. Since he start school here in japan , public Japanese school he doesn’t speak in school even 1 word. He can understand but he chose to be mute in school to everybody even to me. He can speak only in the house but if he can see another people then his not talking.

Somebody’s  give me an advice
Do he need a speech therapy?

Thank you.!
