I've started a Japaneur sister site: livinginkobe.jp
here's why, and what it's all about:
How did you choose where to live in Japan, and why?
Once we decided on Kobe, hundreds of questions came up:
❁ Which neighborhood is best to live in?
❁ What schools should our children go to?
❁ Do we get a car? Which car? Do we need new drivers licenses?
❁ Where do we work out? Shop for food? Bank? Which restaurants are the best?
The list was long. Everything was new.
I found a book, but it didn't go deep.
I wanted frank, honest opinions backed up with reasons.
So my wife and I spent two years and thousands of hours researching, with the goal of making life in Japan awesome for our family.
I've decided to create a Japaneur sister site, to share what we've learned, and to blog about what it's like Living in Kobe.
I hope you like it! Let me know what you think, and please ask me any questions that come to mind!
