UPDATE: May 25, 2019

Hello all, and thank you for visiting this page. 

FIT is still alive, the book is still available on Amazon, and there are still tons of helpful websites and helpful phrases, all to make life easier for you. Also, consultations are now all done online for the convenience of you and me, with the price dropped from ¥5000/hour to ¥4000/hour. Would love to hear from you and help you get started on your FIT adventure.

NOTE: Over the course of this year, the FIT website will be "transitioning" to another platform that is more stable and affordable. There may not be as many striking images, but the content will remain (mostly) the same. 

It's warming up in T-town. Have an excellent summer!


Freelancing in Tokyo: Revised and Updated (available on Amazon, in both print and digital versions) was written to help people who either want to come to Tokyo and live/work for a while or who are already here and hoping to expand their horizons. If you are looking for an enjoyable reference book written from personal experience, I hope you will consider making Freelancing in Tokyo: Revised and Updated (FIT) your new best friend. 

Thank you for your interest in FIT.
