Making a Will in Japan

Making a Will for Foreigners in Japan 

Creating a Will for Foreigners Living in Japan 

Foreigners residing in Japan who wish to create a Will must follow a specific process. The testator is required to visit a notary office (kōshō-yakuba) with two witnesses and verbally dictate their Will to a Notary. The Notary will then keep a copy of the Will on file.

For foreigners who choose to make Japan their home, there are numerous legal considerations to consider. One important aspect that expats often overlook is the necessity of having a Will in place. 

 A Will is a legal document that outlines how a person's assets and belongings should be distributed upon their passing. While contemplating one's own mortality can be uncomfortable, having a Will in place can provide peace of mind and ensure that one's wishes are carried out in the event of one's death.

In Japan, the legal system for Wills is governed by the Civil Code, which stipulates the formal requirements for creating a valid Will.
