Hi, This is Takako!
Let me introduce myself.
I used to live in Myanmar to wok for NGO ( I have lots of interesting stories to tell but let's save it for next time!) and after coming back home, I started working at company as HR for over 10 years.
I worked for recruitment, helping employees on tax, pension, payroll, insurance and supported expats from all over the world.
I also supported Japanese expats to move to abroad.
Now you know, I love supporting people:)
Hope you are feeling at home in Japan. If not, we are here to help you:)
My hobby is to travel and collect good lists of hotel, restaurant and beautiful places in the world.

Usually it takes 6-8 weeks to get your visa ready and shipping your household goods would take 2- 3 months depends on where you come from. At least 2-3 months will be needed to complete your relocation.
After you come to Japan, you will be expected to complete the whole settlement in a couple of months.
First thing is to obtain visa and which one is possible for your case. Then start the visa process.
During preparation for the visa, you can work on the moving such as the consultations and estimation. If you have a family to go with, looking for school/ kindergarten is needed. As soon as you get the green light for Visa, book your flight and deal with your household moving.
You can start looking for houses too. It would be much easier if you have appointments when you arrive in Japan.

As soon as you decide your house, you will register at the ward office.
Another Settlement: utilities, mobile phone purchasing, bank account opening, purchasing furniture/ goods and kitchen utensils.
