Why? Because I've read too many blog posts about people doing ridiculous things and becoming soaked because they don't understand how to use the toilet... So, to all of those folks, you're welcome. :)

What do you miss (or not miss)? What would you miss (or not miss)? #livinginjapan

The unconventional how-to guide for living in Japan
Introduction
Surviving in Japan (without much Japanese) delves into unique how-to's, such as how to do a bank transfer, or how to arrange a redelivery with the post office or delivery company; comprehensive guides to Japanese products like sunscreen, deodorant, and haircare; and many unknown, but useful, resources - which includes a lot of information about living in Japan you won't find anywhere else (in English). 

So whether you're new to Japan, have a few years under your belt, or even if you're an experienced Japan resident, Surviving in Japan is the unconventional how-to guide for living in Japan.
