@suke thank you, it must have been tough on you.. if it’s part of Japanese culture, is there a colloquial/formal term that you use to refer to this situation? I mean having to change schools because of your parents’ job?
Don't you transfer schools even if you and your family move to a town far from where you are now? I think it's impossible to stay in the same school in such cases and it doesn't have anything to do with culture or tradition.
@amenoshita of course! I’ll have to move with my parents. That’s not what I meant by culture. In my country for example, job transfers are not that common, unless you do it voluntarily. I was curious because I saw a lot of animes and J-dramas with kids changing schools because of job transfers.. I thought that that kind of mobility is part of modern Japanese culture
Most of companies and offices are in Tokyo. But there are many other cities in Japan and there are lots of branches and independent companies there as well. So, job transfer and changing one's job with moving aren't rare.
