  • So I went to when I and I went in there and it was always just con gee just full con ge and I looked around.

  • I couldn't find anything that said, like, bank account.

  • It's something that they don't say go here to get a bank account.

  • They have a list of things that you could do And it was like this counters for savings or parts.

  • This Countess for parts.

  • There's nothing that said, like, get a post office bank account here So into the savings account counter account I went to this Anything's counter.

  • I was like, Oh, hi, Can I get a bank account like hockey?

  • Where can he go when you live?

  • There?

  • Just just give me Yu In Japanese society, you card.

  • But I do coddle, but it's, uh, Varna.

  • You're foreign residency college.

  • He's like, Give me that your possible.

  • And I gave it to him and I looked at the address on the back and he was like, We can't We can't give you this account like you Give me the account, please.

  • And he's like, Oh, you need to go to the post office closest to you.

  • I like How do you know which one that is?

  • He's like, No, he's like thanks anyway, my by And by that point it was like 5 p.m. And then, luckily they were next to solo career.

  • Okay, so I had to sell a carrier, and that's like selling out my feelings.

  • And it was so good.

  • And then finally, the day after I went to the post office closest to Mae it's really close, which is convenient because I live in, like, this old people neighborhood.

  • It's a really small town parsed office, Thank it like no English.

  • I said this song, I was like, Oh, I want to bank account.

  • And he was like, uh huh.

  • And I hate when that happens because it's like that's supposed to be your cue to be like, Oh, let me help you with that A little time I guess it went like, Oh, I want this in the light.

  • I'm gonna just stand there and I'm like, good club happen.

  • So hey, can I have this gonna have this?

  • And I have to try and, like, explain myself why I wanted and how I wanted to do anything I know how to do just to try to cue them, to go for it.

  • I said, Oh, I want to buy Candies like uh huh, I just said, I'm really sorry.

  • My Japanese is really bad.

  • I just want a bank account in.

  • He's like And I'm like, uh, money a bank.

  • Uh, post office, bank, uh, money.

  • Uh, and he was like, Oh, so do you want to put money into your account like, No, I want I want to account.

  • Oh, you wanted account?

  • Yeah, as I do.

  • If you come to Japan, 100%.

  • Make sure that you have the Google translate.

  • It has saved my soul a 1,000,000 times.

  • It's not the best.

  • The best translation app if you're going for, like, really technical stuff.

  • But if you just need if you're looking at a piece of paper and it's just like Colin gee, Central, you just get your Google translate and you just press the photo take for everything, and you take a picture, something it'll skin the Japanese, and then you could just highlight it with your finger, and it will just translate it to basically what they're trying to say.

  • And as off my heart has saved my life so many times.

  • I am not sponsored by chance.

  • So I was using that a lot of time through this because before I went to the post office bank account, I read this article by the Japan guy I think it is.

  • And he says, If you want to rest up a bank account in Japan, here's all the steps and he shows you, like, form that they use on dhe all the information on how to ask for and how to use it and what you need to say.

  • And it was, I think it's outdated.

  • That might be it, because it was different.

  • I think this, like this piece of paper was like pink, and it was like this big and I had, like, individual little sections, and for mine, it was this huge piece of blue paper with all these options that I was like, I don't know what this is even if I try and fight it.

  • I was like, What?

  • But the guy was okay.

  • Like if if you go to sign up for anything in Japan, just start to learn the basic Japanese doesn't need to be the country, but just the basic Japanese for what you're doing.

  • So you need to know address like Do Short is addressed.

  • Insurance is Hawkin.

  • I remember that, like I don't know why I remember it like someone's big Ken.

  • I haven't relates to insurance But anyway, long story short, I managed to get it done.

  • One thing that he asked me to do, he's like, Okay, so why do you need the bank account?

  • I wanted to say I just want to put money in it when I get it from an employer because I'm gonna be paid in cash.

  • We'll just have some way I can store it.

  • Um, but that wasn't an option.

  • He gave me lots of options.

  • The only one I remember is direct sending of salary into post of his bank account.

  • And that was the closest I could get.

  • Like everything else was like, I want to saving.

  • So I don't want to take any out.

  • I want to do this.

  • I wanna have a family account.

  • It all got done.

  • It'll be done.

  • But yes.

  • So far, I haven't used to bank account for anything I've had, like, four months.

  • But I always use my one back in Australia, Michael.

  • They like my phone bills and everything are all taking money out of my Australian bank account.

  • So if you want that changed, you should get a Japanese thing.

  • And if you got working on the day visa.

  • You have to get it with the post office bank if anyone spend it.
