The Tokyo Metropolitan Foundation “TSUNAGARI” was established by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government on October 1, 2020, and they seem to offer multilingual service (in 14 languages) for foreign residents living in Tokyo.
I believe this might be of interest to some of you, even if you understand and speak some Japanese!
Tokyo Multilingual Consultation Navi
When foreigners living in Tokyo have problems in their daily lives, they often do not know who to consult with. We accept such consultations, provide the necessary information, and connect them to appropriate organizations according to their needs.
In addition, we deal with cases that are difficult to respond to at each city’s foreign consultation desk, such as minority language and expert consultation. We also provide interpretation support when language support is inadequate at the destination organization.
Open hours: 10 am to 4 pm (weekdays only, excluding weekends and holidays)
Supported languages: 14 (Plain Japanese, English, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Tagalog, Nepalese, Hindi, Thai, Portuguese, Spanish, Indonesian, French, Russian)
Tokyo Coronavirus Support Center for Foreign Residents (TOCOS)
With the spread of new coronavirus infections, we have established an emergency support center to deal with diverse inquiries from foreigners (who do not use Japanese as their mother tongue) regarding effects on their life and related concerns.
Open hours: 10 am to 5 pm (weekdays only, excluding weekends and holidays)
Supported languages: 14 (Plain Japanese, English, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Nepalese, Indonesian, Tagalog, Thai, Portuguese, Spanish, French, Khmer, Burmese)
