Lee would like to prepare a will in Japan and is not sure how to proceed:

“I have been living in Japan for the past 15 years and married for 12½ years to a Japanese national; we have two young children. My wife and I own a property, and my wife’s parents have lived with us for the past three years. We have a mortgage to a Japanese bank, covered by the standard ‘mortgage repayment insurance.’ In addition to some savings, my wife and I have life insurance cover with a Japanese insurance provider. I also have two daughters from a previous marriage who live in New Zealand.
