Even if the pandemic keeps you at home, Street View lets you travel the world
To prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus disease COVID-19, stay-at-home restrictions have been put in place across the world.
How COVID-19 changed the way we work
To prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19, people are being asked to avoid going out as much as possible. For this reason, many companies that previously required their employees to commute to an office, have now permitted telecommuting and have hurriedly established remote working systems.
Japan’s efforts to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic have lead to a big increase in free education websites. Try searching the web for the terms "Python 無料 学習” (muryou gakushuu — free education), and you’ll see you’ll get a huge number of hits. These sites can allow you to study while you’re still overseas, so I highly recommend giving them a try.
The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a major shift in working patterns, and many more people are working from home than before. As someone who has been doing this for over five years now, I’d like to offer some tips to those just settling into their new home office.
Hello, I’m Rina from Bogor, Indonesia.
I majored in Computer Science but since I was a kid I always have interest in Japan. Probably it started in high school, where we had Japanese language class for 1 year. I was good at it, and I wanted to learn more. Since then, I learn the language by myself as a hobby. After passed the JLPT N4 I was thinking to level up my Japanese language skill, hence, I joined a language school in Jakarta while working in an IT solution company as a System Developer.
The practice of writing cover letters for your resume or rirekisho is not traditionally followed in Japan. However, with the increasing internationalization of business, and the spread of online job applications, these have become a more common part of the process. In addition, international companies will require one. This means it’s becoming an important skill to have if you want to work in Japan.
LIFE & RESIDENCE
Last time, we started on our trip through the more obscure or unexpected twists and turns of learning Japanese (but not the harder parts; the list of kanji is that way if that’s what you want) with an overview of some abbreviations. This time, we’ll pick up where we left off with one particular example, but we’re also going to be taking a look at bits and pieces of all sorts of other things that wouldn’t fill a full article by themselves.
Japan has a rich array of annual events and festivities that are celebrated through the seasons, each with their own special traditions, and each with their own special foods. In this article we are going to look at some of Japan’s most important seasonal foods, and examine their significance.
We often say that the Japanese culture is very different from the rest of the world and it sometimes feels like the codes of conduct expected by society are even the complete opposite of what could be applied elsewhere. Here are some of the first situations that you will most likely come across at the beginning of your journey through the world of Japan.
Japan has a reputation for high tech products and futuristic convenience, but much of the country has also maintained a historic flavor. You might not believe it as you walk through the glittering scene of Shinjuku, but it is not at all hard to find neighborhoods, and sometimes whole towns, that still look much like they did during the feudal Edo period (1603-1886).
If you are traveling on a budget in Japan and wondering how to find cheap hotels, then business hotels are an excellent option. Japanese business hotels occupy an inexpensive but comfortable middle ground between pricey accommodation options such as tourist hotels and luxury ryokan inns, and extremely cheap but basic options such as pods in capsule hotels, booths in internet cafés, and bunks in hostel dormitories.
