Beyond Roppongi Area Tokyo Area Law Firms

While Tokyo law firms in the Roppongi area focus mainly on financial and corporate issues, a number of local and national government offices provide more day-to-day English-language advice on legal and other matters, including immigration.




Each main branch of the local government offices in this part of Tokyo have English speakers, and sometimes speakers of other major languages on hand during business hours, as do tax offices during filing season (January to March for advisory services). Many also have free booklets on all aspects of living in Tokyo covering such topics as local health care insurance, schooling for those looking to enter the Japanese school system, pensions for longer term residents, what to do in the case of a major earthquake, and a wealth of other information.
