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)

Both of these can also be used to study at Genki Japanese School. 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. If you study on our long-term course, 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)
