As one of the legions of foreign temporary workers in Japan, my heart weeps for the poor dear. We are plagued by constant anxiety, find it difficult to marry, get a mortgage or settle down properly. The lucky few who do manage to get a permanent employee position with a Japanese company soon hit a glass ceiling. Regardless of Japanese language skills, these lucky foreigners in Japan rarely become managers and get stuck doing English-language related work forever. Most leave for foreign companies or leave the country. The Japanese dream rarely lasts for those wishing to progress their careers.
