Living and working in Japan is a challenge at times and here at FEW, we want to be able to support each other through both the happier and harder times.

As part of our mission to empower women in Japan to achieve their personal and/or professional potential, we are constantly updating our resource section to better help our community. If you ever have anything that you think could be useful to add, please get in touch via the contact form on the right.
