How easy is it to get in Japan?
Should I try to sort something out before I go (long holiday-type cover) or wait until I arrive?
Is it very expensive?

almost everything i own is owned by the city.


waste of money.

check to see how much you actually OWN first.

Some places include basic insurance in the rent. But I'm not sure what it covers - your possessions, or the building falling down, or what...

How about insuring my laptop that will remain in my house while I am on the beach in Okinawa and Fiji? I am not worried it will get stolen, but rather my house burning down

I was forced to take out a fire insurance policy on my apartment when I first got here. It was dirt cheap and it comes directly out of my pay check. Maybe you have this, too, Narni. Check with your tantousha or your office people.

I keep everything of value in a wooden crate buried deep beneath the museums of London. I suggest you do the same.

I keep my Nazi Melterâ„¢ in a very similar storage facility.
