Tokyo is similar to New York City, lots of people wherever you go and skyscrapers around. I have gotten used to living in Tokyo now, and I have a better understanding of the city in terms of how it is laid out. The complex train system makes a lot more sense too. Way of life here is definitely fast paced, and it is important to find time alone in a big city like this.
At my internship I had a great relationship with my mentor and co-workers. Everyone was very welcoming of me into the company. We would go out for dinner after work and build those important relationships needed to work in any company.
My share-house friends were interested in the same things as me, like traveling, eating, and going out with friends. As for the activities we did together, we played sports on a weekly basis and sometimes would do some sightseeing together.
My advice would be:
Come here with an open mind and embrace the differences within the culture. Japan is very different from most other places in the world, but this offers a different perspective on everything.
