Services for Indian Diaspora (NRI, and PIO) living in Japan

Indian Population in Japan:
Unlike in USA, UK, Singapore, or UAE, Indians in Japan are relatively few in numbers. As per the data released by Ministry of Overseas affairs – Government of India, there were 23211 Indians in Japan by the end of January 2015. Out of which, 22230 are Non Resident Indians (NRI) and 981 are Persons of Indian Origin (PIO).

As can be seen from the Indian Population in Japan, majority of them are still Indian citizens (NRI) holding valid Indian Passport. The primary reason that Indian population in Japan is meager is because of the language. Another reason could be the food.
