Moving to Tokyo - CostsAs there are so many variables, it is usually difficult to estimate what international moves cost as they often vary considerably. However, you should consider the following factors when planning your move to Japan:Mode of transport: Air freight is generally the fastest way to move, but it is also more expensive. Alternatively, there is transport by sea freight, which is usually cheaper. See our information on Sea Freight and Air Freight for details of container sizes, among other things.Size of move: The size and weight of the possessions will affect the cost, as the calculation of the price is based on the weight and space requirements of the goods to be moved.IMPORTANT NOTE: Please fill in our form accurately and completely so that we can provide you with a binding quotation.Packaging: Special moving boxes and packaging are the best solution to ensure that fragile items are transported safely.
Often both modes of transport are used in combination, the most important by air freight and your remaining goods by sea freight.Japanese: is the official language of Japan. It is the native language of about 99% of the population of Japan. The large Japanese-speaking groups in Brazil and the USA are descendants of Japanese emigrants. A special feature of the language is its complex writing system, which is a mixture of Chinese characters (more precisely Kanji) and the syllabic scripts (more precisely Moren script) Hiragana and Katakana. With about 127 million speakers and a speaker share of 2.4% of the world's population, Japanese ranks 9th in the list of world languages (the most widely spoken languages).Japanese also consists of a variety of dialects that have developed due to the settlement of remote areas in the mountainous landscape of the archipelago, political fragmentation and thus limited linguistic exchange between people from different regions.Most people who move to Japan from Germany usually bring a large part of their possessions with them. However, to ensure that not only the transport, but the entire relocation goes off without complications, you should take care of the formalities as best you can beforehand.Alpha Service advises you as your relocation professional in an uncomplicated, personal and reliable manner.

Japan is a 6,852-island East Asian nation in the Pacific Ocean, indirectly bordered by Russia to the north and northwest, North and South Korea to the west, and Taiwan and China to the southwest, and is the fourth largest island nation in the world by area. The de facto capital and largest urban settlement is Tokyo.
The formation of the Japanese state began in the 5th century under the cultural influence of the Chinese Empire. Japan is counted among the more densely populated countries in Asia and is the eleventh most populous country in the world with approximately 126 million inhabitants. Most of the inhabitants are followers of Shintoism and Buddhism.
Historically the first industrialised nation in Asia, Japan today has a very highly developed economy and for many years was the world's second largest economic power behind the United States, with which it has been militarily allied since 1952. Japan is a member of the Group of Seven largest industrialised nations in the world and the OECD. Japan ranks 19th out of the 189 United Nations Member States covered by the Index, according to the United Nations Human Development Index.Japan is an island nation and consists essentially of a chain of islands stretching along the east coast of Asia. Japan has a total of 6,852 islands stretching along the Pacific coast. It is over 3000 kilometres long from the Sea of Okhotsk to the Philippine Sea in the Pacific Ocean.Japan is the fourth largest island country in the world and the largest island country in East Asia. The total area is 377,975.24 km².The five main islands are Hokkaido in the north, the central and largest island of Honshu and adjoining it to the south are the islands of Shikoku and Kyushu and further south is Okinawa.The Japanese island chain stretches in a long arc from north (45th latitude, Hokkaido) to south (20th latitude, Okinotorishima). Therefore, the climate in Japan varies greatly; from the cold temperate climate zone in Hokkaido with cold and snowy winters to the subtropics in Okinawa Prefecture.
Form of government: Japan is a hereditary parliamentary monarchyAccording to the 1947 Constitution, Japan is a parliamentary democracy with the Japanese Emperor (Tenno) as the "symbol of the state and of the unity of the people" with the ceremonial functions of a head of state (subject to the approval of the government, Article 7); his position in the state "derives from the will of the people, in whom sovereign power rests "The legislature consists of a bicameral parliament; the more important lower house is re-elected at least every four years. The executive is formed by the cabinet headed by the prime minister, who is appointed by both houses of parliament or, in case of conflict, by the lower house.
The prefectures are relatively autonomous within the tasks assigned to them and exercise local self-government in accordance with chapter eight of the Constitution. Financially, they rely heavily on allocations from the central government. Education has a high priority in Japan, as in all Confucian-influenced countries in Asia. In 2012, public expenditure on education in the primary to tertiary sector was 3.5 per cent of the gross domestic product.
