Those who live in Japan may understand that behind the wonderful experiences of staying in the country is all of the documents that needed to be carefully prepared. Even after moving to Japan, there’s still a lot of required paperwork to fill out and submit. Many people may find it a nightmare considering the fact that Japan does a lot of its governmental work in hard copy. Even though Japan is known to be a technologically advanced country, submitting official documents electronically is nonexistent.
Therefore, all residents of Japan are required to scan documents, copy documents and print documents. It’s not common to own a printer at home, so it’s expected that you do all of the copying, scanning and printing at a convenience store. Although it may sound like simple tasks, services are not available in English which makes it more of a challenge to complete forms/documents for the Japanese government.
