The Working Holiday Visa in Japan allows you to stay and work on Japanese soil for up to one year. The advantage for a gap year student: to receive remuneration to finance his international experience.
The on-site team runs a support desk in Tokyo for travelers from all over the world who benefit from Working Holiday. They organize all the administrative aspects, Japanese lessons, placements on guaranteed jobs and shared accommodation or with a host family.
Like all of our gap year programs , the project in Japan allows you to validate your year while impacting the local community in a positive and lasting way.
The Tokyo international team will remain available throughout your year in Japan (by phone/Visio/E-mail). This permanence will allow you to travel serenely, if you decide to go to other cities or regions of Japan after your initial stay in Tokyo.
You must be able to obtain a Working Holiday visa for Japan.
It can be obtained from the Japanese Embassy in your home country, if you meet the following conditions:
It is important to take into account that the job search will only be done when you are there. Indeed, the package (which includes the tax identification number and a Japanese bank account), is necessary. This is why, before departure, we cannot give any precise indication of the nature of the work you are going to do.
Be reassured, however: with our on-site support, most participants find a job quickly (about 1 month), this will largely depend on their seriousness and their involvement.
We offer opportunity to work and live on a Japanese farm as a gap year student. You will do paid agricultural work as part of your Working Holiday in Japan!
(More information below)
For many Japanese, the quality and origin of food is of great importance. Therefore, Japanese farmers strive to produce the highest quality agricultural commodities. During your work on the farm, you will therefore be able to learn many things, have fun and, at the same time, enjoy healthy food! No prior knowledge of agriculture is required. A supplement of 350 euros will be required to guarantee your place on this project, for which you will be paid between 800-1000 JPY per hour.
