GaijinPot - GPlusMedia

Japan’s largest information and lifestyle website for foreigners.

We launched GaijinPot in 1999 as an English-language resource that was lacking in the market. It was developed by and for foreigners in Japan — and quickly drew a large, loyal and diverse following. Today, it comprises not only job listings and housing information, but also study in Japan courses as well as up-to-date news on the country’s unique destinations and culture.


The GaijinPot website provides its readers with up-to-date information about jobs, living in Japan, language and education, travel along with other insights foreigners need to know.


  • Working in Japan: How to guides, visa questions, job offers, company profiles
  • Living in Japan: Housing information, immigration, taxes, banking, medical and dental care, social security
