What do I need to know before moving to Kamogawa?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Kamogawa, they said:

"Expats moving to Kamogawa should be aware that the city is located in Chiba Prefecture, which is known for its beautiful beaches and natural scenery. The primary language spoken is Japanese, so learning the language or at least basic phrases would be beneficial. The cost of living in Kamogawa is relatively lower compared to Tokyo, but it's still important to budget accordingly. Public transportation is reliable and efficient, with buses and trains being the main modes of transport. Driving is also an option, but you will need to obtain a Japanese driver's license. Kamogawa has a humid subtropical climate, with hot summers and mild winters, so pack your clothes accordingly. The city is known for its seafood, particularly lobster, so seafood lovers will enjoy the local cuisine. Kamogawa is also home to several festivals throughout the year, providing a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the local culture. Healthcare in Japan is of a high standard, but it's recommended to have health insurance to cover any medical costs. It's also important to note that Japan is a very safe country with low crime rates, but it's always wise to take standard precautions. Lastly, Japanese people are known for their politeness and respect for rules, so it's important to familiarize yourself with local customs and etiquette to avoid any cultural faux pas," explained one expat living in Kamogawa, Japan.
