This site provides you a brief guide about Japanese taxes and dues.

This site provides a brief guide about Japanese taxes and dues imposed on individuals. They are very difficult to understand. A Japanese can easily ask for necessary explanations if he/she wants, but a foreigner can not do so unless he/she is exceptionally good at Japanese. You must feel uneasy to be forced to pay taxes and dues, which you can not understand well. I hope this site helps you to know better about them. If this site can help you even a little, you shall live in this country more relaxedly.
