City-Cost is a new platform dedicated to the expat community in Japan.
For foreigners, life in Japan can sometimes be difficult.
The living experience differs greatly from visiting Japan as a tourist;
language, daily life and cultural differences are just a few examples.
There are more,
- Understanding the types of hospitals and communicating
- Insurance and the way it works
- Visas, alien registration, getting a driver’s license
- Choosing your child’s nursery or school and what to expect
These kinds of simple things can be done without difficulty in one’s home country, but in a foreign place, your first experiences can be challenging.
The necessary information people need for their daily lives might not exist in a language they can understand.
This is why I have created City-Cost.
The goal is simple; better the lives of foreigners living in Japan.
Users will be able to ask questions, and consult with each other regarding the challenges of life over here, in a real-time setting.
Through City Cost and its community, I hope to provide access to all of the necessities for life in Japan.
