A 376-page guidebook to help foreigners cope with life in Japan will be published at the end of this month.

The book was prepared by counselors working for the Tokyo government. It provides a wealth of information on such issues as foreign residents’ status, marriage, taxes, welfare and medical treatment based on 10 years of experience gained by the Foreign Residents’ Advisory Center in Shinjuku Ward.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
