As of May 6, the procedures for foreigners registering for their Alien Registration Cards has been changed. Previously, you had to go to the branch office serving the area in which you lived (a holdover from the pre-merger days, when Sakura, Yatabe, etc. were seperate municipalities). That has now changed, with all Alien Registration related matters being handled by the Citizen's Affairs Division at the Sakura Branch Office (address: 1979 Konda). In case you are not familiar with where it is, the office is located about a kilometer north of the Hanamuro intersection of Tsuchiura-Gakuen Sen, two lights east of Higashi Odori. It is a large, red-brick building next to a large baseball field with light poles.
The International Women's Network (IWN) is a group of women who enjoy chatting with people from all over the world. We hold a monthly potluck dinner where we exchange information about the local community while eating a variety of foods. No reservation is needed to attend the potluck. Just bring one dish of food and show up at the meeting. Newcomers are always welcome! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy the international city of Tsukuba with us!
