Life In Japan – Shaftesbury’s Iles Family Share Memories And Visitor Tips

When we launch our FM radio station next year, Alfred will regularly feature Shaftesbury area residents talking about life overseas. We’re calling the feature ‘Expat Chats’.

Today, there’s a taster of what’s to come. Julie Iles spent time in Japan with her two sons Henry and Oscar after her husband took up the chance to relocate and work for Mitsubishi on their aircraft. The family explain how different life was in Japan.
