Top tips to consider when moving from Japan to India.

When you decide to move to a new country, for reasons that could range from personal to professional, it is important to know that the journey may not be very easy. Every country is known for its different culture and traditional practices and the culture shock can be an exciting thing to have happened to you. However, when you are looking at moving to India, there are a few things that you must certainly take note of in order to make sure that your move is seamless and your stay, memorable.

  1. Attempt to learn the local language:
  2. When it comes to moving from Japan to India, you are likely to not face any language barrier if you can understand and speak English as a majority of the suburban and metro city population is pretty much fluent in English. However, when you interact with the local people like the autorickshaw drivers or decide to take the local transport, communicating in English may be an issue. Therefore, the best way to feel one with the locals is by learning the local language. This will largely differ based on the State in which you decide to move to.

  3. Researching is very important:
  4. It does not matter whether you move to India or any other country, doing your research well about the culture, habits, lifestyle and practices of people belonging to that country is very important. Your best resource is Google and you can also get in touch with some other friends or acquaintances who may have travelled to the country before and who could help you out with what you may need

  5. Carry the item that is closest to your heart:
  6. Moving from Japan to India can be daunting as it can be a challenging culture shock and therefore, keeping something that reminds you of home is extremely important. This could range from a photograph that is really close to your heart to a toy that reminds you of your childhood. In case you do forget to carry the item along with you in the first instance, you could always consider shipping personal effects to India and your problem would essentially be sorted.

  7. Hire an agent for your accommodation:
  8. When you are moving to India, accommodation can be a daunting aspect as there are several options but most may be redundant for a lifestyle that you may be currently enjoying. Hiring an agent gives you an assurance that he will skim through the gamut of options and choose the ones that match your descriptions ideally. There may be several places within an Indian city that may not be very safe or populated and letting your concerns be known to the agent can help solve a great deal of problems revolving around accommodation.

Moving from Japan to India can be an exciting prospect and to ensure that you enjoy your stay in the most comfortable way, these tips will go a long way.
