Our name, “WaNavi Japan,” comes from the Japanese kanji character 和 (wa), which means harmony and peace. It embeds the meaning of comfortableness, calmness and friendliness and is also used to describe something Japanese. “Navi” is short for navigation, and together with “Wa”, it means we aspire to walk alongside international residents and provide the support and empowerment needed to live comfortably and confidently in Japan.
