Many foreign nationals now live in Japan, and this had given rise to new legal issues.

Hikari offers legal services to foreign nationals resident in Japan and to Japanese nationals who are family members of foreign residents. Divorce, inheritance, wills, employment, and residence permits (deportation order annulment suit, special permits, changes or confirmation of resident status, etc.) are areas we work with. Our advice considering legal and cultural differences between Japan and a home country of a client will lead to satisfactory solutions as well as preventing future problems.
