GaijinPot - GPlusMedia

Japan’s largest information and lifestyle website for foreigners living, working and traveling in Japan.

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.

Overview
