What is a Working Holiday in Japan?

A Working Holiday in Japan is designed to foster young people with global perspective and enhance friendly relationships between Japan and partner countries/regions.

A Japan Working Holiday Visa allows you the flexibility to work and travel around Japan, for a period of up to 1 year (18 months for Australians).

Since the Working Holiday programme is intended to promote greater mutual understanding, the applicant’s primary aim should be to holiday in Japan. The programme is not designed for persons who mainly intend to work or study in Japan (for which purposes the appropriate visa should be sought).

To fully appreciate the many different aspects of Japan, it is advised that the working holiday applicant moves to different areas within Japan at approximately 3-month intervals.
