26 PEOPLE LIVING IN JAPAN YOUR STORIES ABOUT NECKBEARDS THAT HAVE VISITED YOUR COUNTRY

1. them…

The vast majority will come over and geek out for a week in specific entertainment districts and tourist traps, which is pretty much live and let live for me. Some neckbeard do end up moving to Japan though, and they definitely exist in FOB expat/English teacher circles. That being said, there aren't really any "stories" that I know of that are particularly noteworthy. Most of them come here, go through culture shock and realize that Japan isn't all it was cracked up to be, and go home once the have had their fill. Some get stuck in bad marriages/ have kids and end up staying in low paying English teaching jobs for the rest of their lives since they have no other marketable skills/career options, and that lot is pretty sad. A small but notable percentage will break down becuase of the lack of a social support system/ poor mental health care, which is always sad to see as well.
