If there was one thing that you wish you had known about living in Japan before you arrived and started to settle in, what would it be?

I just moved here about a week and a half ago. I really wish I was prepared for how short the days are! The sunsets so early in the day.

That becoming a citizen is almost impossible, that becoming a permanent resident takes about 10 years if you're not married to a national, and that if you aren't Japanese, you're not really going to be accepted as a national ever...you'll always be CFA (come from away). Other than that, Japan is wonderful. If you decide you can live somewhere without considered to be actually a citizen, then I think it would be an easy place to live if you have the income. Very polite society with lots of interesting things to do.
