A Year in an Instant


Day 31

Instant photo for Day 31 of “A Year in an Instant” by Nuno Coelho Santos


Today I went to the Setagaya Ward Office and registered as a foreigner living in Japan. I filled in a form that asked for my name in roman characters, katakana and Chinese characters, my current address, previous country, passport and other basic info. In 15 minutes I was returned my residency card  with the address written on the back. This is the first step for me to legally integrate in the country: get a bank account and perhaps more importantly a phone number.
