Leaving Japan for now

It’s been a while since I wrote anything in this blog and unfortunately, this might be the last time I’m writing as a resident of Japan.

So 2020 isn’t really the best year for all the people on Earth. The coronavirus really affected everyone in some way or another. In the case of our start up company, we weren’t able to secure additional funding because investors are reluctant to spend more money for risky investments like us.

Because of the funding issue, our company decided to restructure and to make the Tokyo office dormant for the mean time which means no business activity for the foreseeable future.

I’m somewhat lucky in a way that I’m still working for the project but I’m now forced to relocate back to the Philippines because the company won’t be able support my working visa. In a way, it’s good because I’m been thinking of going back to Manila anyway.

I hope this won’t be my last time writing about Japan. And I’m really looking forward to returning as a tourist when the virus situation gets better.

Ja ne for now 🙂
