    I have an 18 year old son who will be graduating from High school in May. He wants to work in Japan for a while and stay with family friends. He would be in South Tokyo somewhere. We live in Utah, USA and would appreciate any help concerning this. He is 6’3″ and 200 lbs. A good person and worker. Is he too young to find a place to work for say 6 months to a year with a work visa?

    I found this website very interesting!
    Hi 🙂

    This summer, I am going to Japan for 4 months to study Japanese language.
    I am an undergraduate student and I’ll graduate next year.
    After graduation, I am thinking working in Tokyo.
    So my questions are:

    Do you think it will be hard for me to find an entry-level job?

    If I have a working visa holiday can I switch to Working Visa after one year?

    Btw,my major is economics so it is very board! I speak French and English.
    I speak a little bit of Mandarin and Spanish.
    I will learn Japanese and my boyfriend will help me (he is Japanese).

    Thank you for you time.

    I visited some of my friends living in Kyoto a few week ago and enjoyed my time there so much i want to take Japanese lessons at the Nihongo centre in Kyoto. During my time in japan i was introduced to a restaurant owner who told me he would be willing to give me a part-time job while i study in Japan. What sort of visa would i be looking for to do this? I am a British citizen, and the course will last a year or so.

    Hi, I am a Malaysian who came to Japan about 4 years ago for my Masters degree.I graduated last year and married to my husband who is currently a malaysian and also a Phd student here in japan. Therefore i am currently staying as a dependent and working as a part-timer in Hokkaido. I am looking for a full time job now and wondering if its possible to change my Visa from dependent to working Visa. Is it difficult? as i might need to persuade my future employer to do it for me.

    Many thanks and best regards
