Working in Japan

Unless you have a special visa, you cannot work in Japan. This includes internships, if you receive anything of value in exchange for the work, or have a contract. Japan is very strict about visas and employment law.

The most common types of special visas that allow you to work are as follows:

  • Working Holiday visa
  • Student visa (up to 28 hours per week)

If you do not have one of the above visas, the only way you can work is to find a company that is willing to sponsor you for a visa for a full time job, or to marry a Japanese person!

GenkiJACS provides several services for people who want to work in Japan. For any students who study with us for 8 weeks or more, we can provide the following services:

  • Introduction to job placement organizations/other opportunities in Japan
  • Translation of your resume into Japanese
  • Job interview practice
  • Japanese communication ability certification (OPI interview)
