Handbook for International Researchers

This handbook is designed to assist Visiting Researchers and Visiting Research Fellows at Kobe University in becoming acquainted with life in Japan. The handbook covers a wide range of topics including visa procedures, housing, medical care and Internet connections. We hope this helps Visiting Researchers and Visiting Research Fellows make a smooth, comfortable transition to life in Kobe as part of the University’s diverse community.
