    TOKYO - Japan is considering opening up its labour market partly to accept nurses and other care workers from Thailand, the Philippines and other Asian countries under economic partnership deals, a report said yesterday.

    But Tokyo plans to attach strict conditions such as limiting the number of workers from each country and requiring them to receive hospital training before taking national exams, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun said.

    I find this Thread interesting. Why because I used to live in Japan. .My husband is a Japanese National. As a matter of fact he and my oldest son are there now. The biggest draw back for foreingers working in Japan is the fact that everything is in Japanese and if the language isn't hard enough learning the Kanji, Hiragana, etc. to read and write is even harder. So I am wondering how Japan can accomodate any nurses from any countires considering the fact the majority of the people cannot read or write their language? Tokyo is the most expensive place to live in in the world. But it is very safe and most foreigners that I ran into when I was there really love the place, the people and the culture.
