Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the overall features of Japanese residential patterns in Australia. In particular, through analysing the residential distribution in major Australian cities, with a focus on Melbourne, it highlights findings of author's questionnaire research on demographic information about Japanese residency. To illustrate, occupational profiles derived from Japanese government data are surveyed and their plans and intentions to reside temporarily or permanently in Australia are ascertained. Thereafter, the attitudes of various informants towards naturalisation are also examined. The fieldwork for this research was conducted in Melbourne, so in the context of a generalised summary, why Japanese people came to Australia and their grounds for their residential preference of Melbourne, is explored and explained. Lastly, the chapter presents a more specific sociological analysis of Japanese residency in Melbourne. An overall view of Japanese residency is depicted in the context of population movements among contemporary urbanites.
