Welcome to the KA International Mothers in Japan official blog!
In all fairness we must acknowledge that there are some fathers helping in this effort, and we appreciate their input and viewpoints! But the majority of our voice comes from a community of mothers (parents) raising their children in Japan, facing the challenges that come with the task of learning a new culture, being a parent, being a spouse, often wading through it all with limited knowledge of a complex language and social system.
Some of our adventures are downright hilarious, some confusing, some frustrating, some have made us very upset, and others have touched our hearts with the generosity of people who have crossed our paths along the way!
We admit we don’t know exactly where this blog will lead, but we are confident that as we start it, the direction will become clearer and we will discover ways to share what we have learned and ideas to bring these to our readers. We hope along the way you, our readers, will find some useful information and tips about living in Japan as a foreigner.
