We hear the word “gender” more and more in the news.

In this article, we discussed with international students who are living (or have lived) in Japan about their perceptions of gender through their lives in Japan.
At YOMOYAMA, we would like to deepen our understanding of gender by discussing and getting to know each other’s thoughts.


I am Patrick from Shanghai, China. I graduated from Hosei university business administration in 2020. During the pandemic, I had a tough time searching for jobs but I was lucky enough to be finally accepted by a venture alcohol retailing company and now I am working as a business developer in it. What is “business development”? To put it simply, it means to create a business from scratch, to be a pioneer in businesses if you will. During business developments, we encountered a lot of problems, and usually nobody around who could teach us, because we were always doing something new. Be fearless and resourceful is my key to solve these problems. If you are interested in what I do and what my company does, please check out KURAND.
