Thank you, Ms. Penn and team, for the valuable book. My copy just arrived, and I feel enriched from the chapters I have read. This book addresses a growing need, because we all play this game together - growing older. It does not give us ready-made solutions, but points out where to look and where to be extra careful. Now, where is the forum to pool our experience and learn more with each other?
I learned a number of things that were new to me concerning aging in Japan. As a holder of "permanent residency" status who is considering living in Japan it was most useful.
On the whole a most useful book for those who are in this most unusual set of circumstances.
In short while remaining in Japan "until the end" offers some advantages and attractions there are some definite downsides particularly in the area of long term care.
However, although I have yet to read it from cover to cover, I was shocked by the following expressions:
"A copy of this will is also kept on record so that it’s accuracy cannot be disputed."
"If the heirs do it that way, they can breath a sigh of relief that the inheritance procedures are finally complete."
These violations of proper English may be due to a lack of proofreading, but the fact that they were written is, to me, simply unprofessional. I emailed the author about the "it is" issue but received no reply.
