Chapter Summary

This is the conclusory chapter of the book, which analyses the overseas transfer process within Japanese companies and financial institutions from the point of view of Japanese women rather than their working husbands, as has been the focus of other studies. In view of the clearly-defined gender roles that developed in post-war Japan, which meant that husbands concentrated on the workplace while their wives focused on the home, it examines what it means for contemporary Japanese women to leave all that is familiar in Japan to live in the United Kingdom for a husband's job with which women have little connection. Japanese businesses are an important source of employment in towns such as Telford, and cities such as Cardiff. An important conclusion of the book is the long-term positive effect that Japanese wives have on Anglo-Japanese relations and the British people with whom they come into contact.

Keywords: Anglo-Japanese relations; Cardiff; Japanese companies; Japanese women; overseas transfer process; Telford
