Get the Lowdown on a Working Holiday in Japan

From how to get a working holiday visa to must-see sights to add to your bucket list, get the lowdown on Work Japan from BUNAC Sales Specialist and expert in all things Japan, Bethan.

What time of year is best to go?

Japan is a great year-round destination! My favourite time of year was March/April as it’s cherry blossom season - one of the most beautiful times of year!

With Japan hosting the Rugby World Cup 2019 and Tokyo 2020 Olympics, it’s definitely an exciting country to travel to over the next couple of years! You can time it so you're there for the rugby, see the cherry blossom season and experience the Olympics all in your year working in Japan.

How do I get a working holiday visa for Japan?

Japan working holiday visas will become available on the 1st April 2019 for UK passport holders and you can get assistance with the Japan visa process on the BUNAC Work Japan programme.

What type of jobs can I do?

There are so many different jobs you can do in Japan! From food and beverage and retail opportunities to teaching English and even working in a ski resort, there is a job suited to everyone. The Work Japan Essentials programme is great if you’re looking for job support whilst you’re out there and the Work Japan Ultimate Ski programme is perfect for those looking for a pre-arranged ski resort job.
