Move to japan.

Sep 21, 21 at 4:39pm
its really hard to immigrate to japan, theyr extremely isolationist idk where you would plan to stay, but apparently living in the cities is extreme expensive (probably because everyone wants to live there) theyr having issues with ghost towns so maybe moving to a small town would be a good idea (the japanese countryside is so pretty anyways) getting a job as a translator or teaching english probz wouldnt be too difficult, and you can skirt the horrible work overload and corporate worship they have, and if they approve your residency visa, i think its probz a good idea. just keep in mind the japanese arent very delighted toward foreigners, and make sure you know the language fluently (speaking and being able to read all kana) you might get lonely though, moving to a whole new country, but if you enjoy the culture id say go for it, just maybe keep in mind the people arent always very friendly/accepting of foreigners
I'd look at CdawgVA too https://maiotaku.com/topics/52037?page=1#

A friend of mine out of college did after doing the JET program for a couple years. Now he's married with three kids lol he doesn't regret it at all, but it definitely takes some adjustment especially if you are close to your family.

I think my main problem with moving to Japan is that it's difficult to get a decent job there unless you plan to go the English tutor/teacher route. But then there's a salary cap as an English Teacher, or unless you've lived in Japan for a certain amount of years, plus you don't get any benefits from the tax cuts they take from your paycheck unless you're planning to live in Japan long term. As such, I think I'd struggle to live in Japan long term financially, especially if I was planning to start a family there. At least this is what I got off of some vids on youtube, not sure how accurate all this is...
My father said if you have disability income, you would lose it if you moved there. But my Japanese language teacher told me she was able to bring her mother's disability income with her mother from Japan to America. For vaccines, my mother said it's required to access even while pandemic is mild now.
