Kobe JALT:

From Visitor to Resident - How you can set down roots in Japan

Date: Friday, March 28th, 2008 Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Speaker: Arudou Debito

Been in Japan for awhile? Planning to stay longer, even indefinitely? You owe it to yourself to know a few things about how to make your life easier over here--from getting the right visa to getting a better job, from dealing with family issues to dealing with employment issues, from living a quiet life to being an agent for social change. Arudou Debito, activist and author of book Japanese Only (Akashi Shoten 2004, 2006), will be presenting from his new co-authored book, Handbook for Immigrants to Japan (Akashi Shoten Inc. 2008). Learn how to make the best of life over here, from port of entry all the way through funeral arrangements. (See table of contents and synopsis of the book)

The presentation will be followed by a lengthy Q&A session so you can raise other issues of your choice as well. Debito's website may be found at www.debito.org.
