Background of nomadic growth in Japan:
In principle, lifelong employment is about working for an organization that has just graduated from school until graduation and retirement age. Once Japanese companies’ stereotype, it was better to be a generalist than an expert rather than an “employee.” If a foreigner goes to work as a digital nomad in Japan, he does not need a special visa.
Even a super person who can do something sitting at home could not change jobs if he went to another company. Still, the culture of changing jobs at foreign-approved companies has entered Japan, and the model of lifelong employment is limited. As a result, specialists’ training has started in Japanese companies. As the number of self-reliant people and aiming to become experts for career advancement has increased, the number of people leaving the company and choosing to work has increased. The idea of nomads became widely known in Japan in
2010, when the “leverage series” of Nooki Honda and Mifuo Ando, known as Japan’s primary nomadic worker, ignited the stimulus. It can be said to be a role.
Pride and self-control:
Living as a digital nomad frees you from the shackles of any organization, and at the same time, you must always believe in yourself and correct yourself. This may be the most critical aspect of being a digital nomad. Unfortunately, for people who are not suitable for digital migration, there are many pitfalls to working as a digital nomad. The biggest problem is that you can’t connect to the internet anytime, anywhere. If you suddenly fall into a network refugee state, you may not be able to do anything or lose contact with your clients, family, and friends.
