You would think that after five years I would know how but I've never really had problems before so I haven't taken the initiative to figure it out. I'm trying to figure out what's going on with my paycheck now because the taxes seem to be higher than they should be but I can't understand what any of the kanji is. Is there a good reference site somewhere that can explain what all the different terms are?

Why not just ask your employer? If something has changed, that's enough reason to warrant an innocent question.

BTW, if you just had your 40th birthday, national health insurance payments would go up. Can't otherwise say why there was any change. Has anything in your lifestyle changed? Location? Number of people in the family?

Until then, this link might help a little.

I'd think your employer would be the best one to explain that to you, right?
