Filipinos based in Japan do not only get updates on diplomatic events hosted by the Philippine Embassy in Tokyo and Osaka, but they also benefit from the services offered by these offices which include Assistance to Nationals (ATN), visa and passport processing, civil registration and notarial services, among others.
