About Jobs in Japan with Japanese

Before getting into it, let’s first understand that Japan is a disciplined, clean and established country and there are very detailed short-picks if you visit there that narrate us about its advancement in every aspect possible. Now this is the result of all the logic based regulations in Japan since history and ironically it becomes a hurdle or we can say it as a mental barrier for the people who come from a different culture to find a job in Japan which is actually primarily based on the level of discipline imbibed in him/her. As example we can say higher the Japanese language level you have, more are your chances to get a Job in Japan. Higher the level of Japanese cultural understanding you have, your chances to get a Job in Japan are even more. Now the first method and the easiest way which more than 90% people follow is to first go on study visa and then eventually getting job and working visa because almost all schools in Japan offer the courses that push Japanese language ability very fast, every student on an average becomes able to get Permanent Job Quickly after finishing one year or one and a half year study in Japan. There is usually a need of JLPT Level N2 for a Job in Japan as mentioned on the requirements of the companies hiring foreigners but there are many examples that students get Job without even clearing N2 by their well spoken Japanese language skills. The other things necessary to get a permanent job in Japan are, for example the perfect style of writing your resume in Japanese language that gives your professional image while applying because most of the companies take this very seriously. Another example is how you give your interview and present yourself full with confidence, Japanese language knowledge, Japanese work culture knowledge, business mannerisms and proper knowledge of the company in which you are applying. There is a separate column in the Japanese resume format in which you have to mention why you want to join this company and not another. Also, they ask the same question in different manner while interviewing you. The best part of the schools in Japan is that they guide you and train you in all the things necessary to get a permanent Job in Japan in ending months of your Japanese language course.

About Jobs in Japan without Japanese

Now first of all let me clear you that what does without Japanese means. This may be a shocking truth to many of us that Japan is a country where long term living and working dream cannot be fulfilled without learning Japanese language. Those who have acquired Jobs in Japan may be in the field of engineering or medical science, have to start learning Japanese sooner or later. Those who are currently living in Japan and learning Japanese from can understand what I am trying to convey. Now as I just mentioned that it is not impossible to get Job but yes provided you have expertise and a documented experience of your pertinent field, yet it will be far remote chance to get it just like any other European country or in United States for example. So the main point here is if your current skills and experience match the Japanese company requirements and there you have connections in Japan also, so far so good. But if you really want it to happen, you must learn Japanese language, if not till advanced, at least till intermediate level. Because then only your CV proves that you are keen to work long time in Japan and are serious to impart and improve your engineering skills and experience for instance. Best of all, if you have your CV in Japanese language and you can speak a minimum like your self-introduction, about your work-ex in Japanese, nothing is better than that. And lastly there are many many websites to post your CV and get free consultation from Japanese consultants with interview placements. For example: Indeed, Hello-work, Daijob, Bizreach, Craiglist, GaijinPot to name a few. You can always search on internet and there are plenty of platforms to help you now the only thing required is your willingness. In starting it may look a bit tricky and tedious work to pitch in to a job consultant and place an appointment with him or her. But eventually after going through the long process of generating Ids and filing their job entry sheets, you will sooner have a better idea what they actually asking you again and again and that will give you a fair idea about what qualities you should showcase in your CV as well as it will help you to build your interview questions and answers. The point is you have to be strong enough in one area, either it can be Japanese language with some knowledge of other field, or it can be your expert field for example IT with some knowledge of Japanese language.

How to save money in Japan

Ok, Whenever I tell people about my experience of studying Japanese language in Japan, everyone quickly asks the same question: “Isn’t Japan very expensive?” So I tell everyone that one year Cost of living and studying in Japan is half compared to US, UK, Canada or Australia. The idea that Japan is an expensive place to live is a myth. So keep reading this before you go to Japan and you’ll know exactly how to get most out of Japan within your budget. It pays to start your money-saving efforts long before you actually set foot in Japan. Picking the right processing agent is the most effective way to save money as they will tell you about how and when you should start to be optimum in terms of cost effectiveness. For example in case of Tokyo, it can be very expensive to live there, compared to Tokushima, Osaka, Takamatsu or other cities of Japan. Be it property prices, rented apartment, Traveling or food, Tokyo is among the highest expensive cities in the world. That’s why it might make sense to pick a smaller city to Study in Japan if one of your goals is to save money. Luckily, there are many affordable types of accommodation and Jobs available in other cities, especially for foreign students. So this is the first and most important point to save money in Japan. Now let’s understand how to save money once you reach Japan. Studying in Japan can pay you different international and Japanese cultural experiences that you can convert into money by using it in getting Jobs. So start with a part-time Job and go shopping. Japanese cities are quite bicycle-friendly, so consider buying yourself a cheap bicycle instead of using expensive forms of public transport. Anyone who has lived in Japan will agree that the nearest 100-yen shop (like Daiso or Aeon) quickly becomes your best friend. Anything you might need – Right from kitchenware, stationery, tools, household item, candies, chocolates, beer or a very cute piggy bank to help you save more money – all is lined up here on a very reasonable price. Just don’t get tempted by all the kawaii and funny items that you don’t actually need. When you start living in Japan, ask any Japanese about different hidden ways and they will quickly tell you how you can save your money by just filling a simple form. One will never regret about the amount he has paid for any product purchased be it an expensive one because of its quality and durability be it a food item, electronic item, stationery or a household good. Similarly, When it comes to eating out, Japan really offers a wide range of options and prices. Restaurants can be expensive or surprisingly cheap, depending on where you go. Avoid the busy shopping malls and look for smaller restaurants hidden in alleyways. For less than 400yen you could get yourself a steamy rice bowl, curry or noodle dish. There is no culture of giving tips in any restaurant in Japan. However, cooking your own food will ultimately save you more money as long as you learn how to shop smart. A great way to avoid pricey groceries is shopping late and locally. These markets generally offer better prices than convenience stores, and at the end of the day you’ll find a lot of great deals on veggies, meat and fish in these supermarkets. Another way to budget in Japan is by looking at what the locals eat. Discover new ingredients like kabocha, daikon, and Japanese veggies by taking note when they come into season. Get yourself a big bag of rice, a bottle of mirin (cooking wine) and a solid supply of soy sauce, three essential ingredients in most Japanese dishes. It may take some time and effort to master new recipes, but you’ll surely be able to impress friends and family back home by whipping up your own Japanese dish in a very low budget. In the end I would say, Japan is more compatible with student lifestyle and the experiences you gain in this mesmerizing country will be, almost certainly, priceless. Also, there are videos on our YouTube Channel “Nihongomax” about it. Don’t forget to check it out.

The courses given at are complete or not? I doubt if I can get success only studying from there?

They are even more than the complete course. Imagine if we compare 6 months batch (48 classes) we have compressed it in 30-32 classes on And imagine if you have enrolled in an institute paying 15000 to 20000 for N3 and they give you these 48 classes. So usually their 20% course is the repetition of N4 and N5 and rest 20% is entertainment like origami, cultural sessions etc. So now, while studying from this site, it can be compared like 30 classes for N3 and rest you can always revise N4 N5 and even a bit starting of N2 to make your level perfect. The main difference is of quality and we are sure who are studying from an institute can judge. The courses given at are the soul of all Japanese language courses. Moreover there you don’t have to pay any separate amount for a separate GENRE. For example, if you are done with JLPT you can listen how English is taught in Japanese so that your listening skills will improve. Or you can study at your own pace without paying again for repetition. And most importantly I would say is 5 times in terms of guidance which institutes are unable to give you. We guide the same things to our students and other institutes teachers as well. Though the website is currently zero in entertainment that we totally agree. And we are working on many points of improvements and value addition like Kanji games, JLPT quizzes with options and scores again in a sorted manner which targets your studies and entertainment as well. Without making cluttered. Our target is to make it fully loaded with everything a student needs to clear JLPT without going to any institute paying 100 times less and with every other entertainment learning of Japanese language be it friends finding, Jobs or even Travelling to Japan.

1. About starting a Job Interview in Japan

The most powerful point to get a job in Japan is having a valid visa already with you and even better if you are currently staying in Japan. Among variety of information there is the first basic step that you can get your interview placed through an agent or the trusted sites that mostly work for free and you are good to go. Now the main thing here to remember is that Japanese Job interview has an equal importance of your business mannerisms as your qualifications. This may sound obvious to the more polished professionals among us, but you must wear an appropriate suit or formal dress with your hair being tidy cut and you are cleanly shaven. You don’t get a second chance at a first impression. Correct behavior begins before you even enter the interview room. Here is the full play-by-play of how to behave when first arriving for your interview:
1. Knock on the door three times and say: Shitsurei shimas — Excuse me
2. Wait. Do not enter the room until you hear the interviewer say: Douzo— Please
3. Enter the room, close the door, face the interview panel and say shitsurei shimasu again. Bow.
4. Walk to your chair, stand beside it and say: “__(Your Name)____to moushimasu. Douzo yoroshiku onegai shimasu” “My name is_____, it is a pleasure to meet you,”
5. Bow again. As you will need to bow, it is best to have your arms out at your sides rather than placed behind your back.
6. The interviewer will then invite you to sit down.
7. The way you sit is important: you should be sitting up straight and not leaning back, your legs should be together and your hands should be flat on your legs.
The first question you will mostly get is some version of “Jiko shokai” means self-introduction. The best way to introduce yourself is to be short covering your latest activities, whether work history or university courses, and a little about yourself, such as hobbies and passions. Don’t go into too much detail. Keep in mind that this, along with anything else you say during a Japanese interview, should at least be in the polite form.

1. 日本で就職面接を開始

日本で就職するための最も強力なポイントは、すでに有効なビザを持っていることです。現在日本に滞在している場合はさらに良いでしょう。さまざまな情報の中には、ほとんど無料で機能するエージェントまたは信頼できるサイトを通じて面接を行うことができる最初の基本的なステップがあります。ここで覚えておくべき主なことは、日本の就職の面接はあなたの資格と同じくらいあなたのビジネスマナーを重要視しているということです。 これは私たちの間でより洗練された専門家には明白に聞こえるかもしれませんが、髪をきれいにカットし、きれいに剃った適切なスーツまたはフォーマルドレスを着用する必要があります。第一印象で二度目のチャンスはありません。 面接室に入る前から正しい行動が始まります。面接に最初に到着したときの振る舞いの完全な実況は次のとおりです。
1.ドアを3回ノックして、次のように言います。 失礼します。
2.インタビュアーの言うことを聞くまで、部屋に入らないでください。 「どうぞ」と言われたら。。
「私の名前は___と申します。どうぞよろしくおねがいします。」 5.もう一度お辞儀をします。背中の後ろに置くのではなく、腕を横に出すのが最善です。
7.座る方法は重要です。まっすぐに座って、後ろにもたれかかってはいけません。両足は一緒になっていて、両手は両足で平らでなければなりません。 そして、主に受ける最初の質問は、「自己紹介」です。 自己紹介の最良の方法は、職歴や大学のコースなど、最新の活動について簡単に説明し、趣味や情熱など、自分自身について少し説明することです。あまり詳しく説明しないでください。これは、日本の面接であなたが言うことと同様に、少なくとも礼儀正しい形でなければならないことを覚えておいてください。

2. Job Interview Questions in Japan.

Most important question in the whole Japanese company interview will be “Your Knowledge about the company” Typically an interview will begin with you explaining what you know about the company. So as per the research you have done you should give a brief summary of what you know about the company – for example: company history, products, customers, competitors, etc. Alternatively, you may also be asked: “What does our company make? What kind of products are there?” etc. Secondly: Why did you apply for this job? Quite often an interviewer will want to ask why you have applied for the position. Generally, the question is in a fairly simple format. And it means “What is your purpose or motive to apply for this Job” Shiboudouki o oshiete kudasai: Instead the interviewer could also possibly ask: shiboudouki, oubo shita riyuu, ouboshita kikkake or shibouriyuu These all have a similar meaning. Again, I would recommend that in your answer you highlight the experiences and skills that you have which fit the job role. Another question they can ask what you would like to achieve if you gained this position. In order to answer you really need to know what this job is about and be able to provide a feasible possible target that you would like to aim for. One of the main purposes of the interview is to find out about you. If you are currently employed, then they may ask about your current job. One question you may expect to hear is: “Please tell us about your current job,” This is an opportunity to highlight important skills that you have and the kind of work that you do. Be sure to talk about what you actually do in your current position, rather than just chatting about work in general. Discuss the value you bring to your current employer. It is also a good opportunity to show how your experience matches the position you have applied for.

2. 就職面接での質問

日本企業の面接で最も重要な質問は「会社についてのあなたの知識」です。 通常、面接はあなたが会社について知っていることを説明することから始まります。したがって、行った調査に従って、会社について知っていることの簡単な要約を提供する必要があります。たとえば、会社の歴史、製品、顧客、競合他社などです。 または、「当社は何を作っているのですか?どんな商品がありますか?」などです。 あるいは、なぜこの仕事に応募したのですか? 面接官は、なぜあなたがそのポジションに応募したのかを尋ねたいと思うことがよくあります。一般的に、質問はかなり単純な形式です。そしてそれは「この仕事に応募するあなたの目的や動機は何ですか」という意味で聞かれています。 志望動機の代わりに、面接官はおそらく次のように尋ねることもできます。 応募した理由、応募したきっかけ、志望理由などなどです。 これらはすべて同じような意味を持っています。繰り返しになりますが、あなたの回答では、職務に適した経験とスキルを強調することをお勧めします。 あなたがこの地位を獲得した場合、彼らはあなたが何を達成したいのかを尋ねることができる別の質問。答えるために、あなたは本当にこの仕事が何であるかを知っていて、目指したいと思う実行可能な目標を提供する必要があります。 面接の主な目的の1つは、あなたについて知ることです。現在雇用されている場合、面接官は現在の仕事について尋ねるかもしれません。もう1つの質問を期待できます。 「自分の現在の仕事について教えてください」 これは、自分が持っている重要なスキルと今している仕事の種類を強調する機会です。仕事全般について話すだけでなく、現在の立場で実際に何をしているのかを必ず話し合ってください。 現在の雇用主にもたらす価値について話し合います。また、あなたの業務経験が応募したポジションとどのように一致するかを示す良い機会でもあります。

3. Interpersonal Japanese interview questions

Next they can ask about your relevant background. However, the interviewer will also want to dig deeper about any experience you mention and ask for more specific examples. Let’s say that it was a sales position. In this case, they might ask: “Please tell us about your experience in sales.” In order to see what you are like, especially in regards to working under pressure, the interviewer will ask you the following: “How do you deal with pressure? Please explain exactly how you would cope” Both questions are asking how you would handle pressure. Other question they may ask like what kind of work discourages you, so be sure not to say anything which is very different to the job role you have applied for! Or how do you manage troubleshooting at work? Troubleshooting questions are perhaps the type of question that everyone dreads most, as they can be hard to anticipate. In particular, the interviewer may give you a tricky scenario in which you must decide on a solution. At a basic level you may get questions like these: “What do you do if you can’t make a deadline?” “If you can’t manage your workload well, what would you do?” These two questions are quite similar; the first one is asking about if you can’t keep to a deadline so you have to think of an appropriate answer for what you would do in this situation. The second question is a little bit more focused on how you deal with time management problems. It is always best to prepare several examples as responses prior to your interview. Other question also asks you to explore a hypothetical situation: “If you come across a problem during work, how would you resolve it?” “At work there is someone that you don’t get along with well. What would you do to get along with them?” Dealing with more interpersonal issues, like what kind of person you don’t get along with and what you would do in that situation. I would really highlight in your answer that there isn’t a specific type of person that you don’t get along with, but if there was you would use your communication skills to overcome this kind of issue. “If you have a work colleague you don’t agree with how would you approach this situation? How would you come to an understanding?” This question is asking if you have a difference of opinion with a work colleague, again I would highlight communication skills in your answer and try to make it clear that you get along with people quite well. “How do you deal with difficult people?” This is similar to the previous question but the interviewer is asking more directly what you would do if another person was difficult. You can think in terms of difficult customers rather than difficult colleagues. Your applicable experiences and skills and an essential part of the interview is about your strengths, but the interviewer may also ask about your weaknesses: “Can you tell us about your strengths/weaknesses?” And provide examples of your weaknesses. As a rule of thumb, you should prepare three examples of strengths prior to any interview. For anything you are not good at, you should also include an explanation of how you are overcoming it. Alternatively, the interviewer may go straight into asking you about your experience. For example: “How do you think your experience matches the position?” For example, you can talk about specific job roles that you have had which make you a suitable match for the job you are interviewing for. A similar question, but in regards to skills, would be: “How do you think your skills match the position?” “If you compare yourself to someone else, how would you do work differently?” This can be a hard question to answer, but you can highlight your personal qualities. For many jobs the interviewer will be curious about how your communication skills rank as one of your personal qualities or strengths, so they may well ask: “If you think of a new idea, how would you convince your superior about it?” it’s about having an idea and how you would persuade people about it. It is helpful to think of a past example to include in your answer.

3. 就職面接での個人質問

次に、面接官はあなたの該当する背景について尋ねる可能性があります。 ここでは、面接官は、あなたが言及した経験についてさらに深く掘り下げ、より具体的な例を求めたいかもしれない。仮に、それがセールスポジションだったとしましょう。この場合、「あなたの販売経験について教えてください。」と聞かれるかもしれない。 特にプレッシャーの下で働くことに関して、あなたがどのようなものかを見るために、面接官はあなたに次のことを尋ねます: 「プレッシャーにどのように対処しますか?どのように対処するかを正確に説明してください。」 どちらの質問も、プレッシャーにどのように対処するかを尋ねています。 他の質問は、どのような仕事があなたを落胆させるかなどですので、自分が応募した職務とは大きく異なることは何も言わないでください! または、職場での問題対応をどのように管理しますか?問題対応の質問は、予測が難しいため、おそらく誰もが最も恐れるタイプの質問です。特に、面接官は、解決策を決定しなければならない複雑なシナリオを提供する場合があります。基本的なレベルでは、次のような質問が表示される場合があります。「締め切りに間に合わなかったらどうしますか?」あるいは 「ワークロードを適切に管理できない場合は、どうしますか?」 これらの2つの質問は非常に似ています。 1つ目は、締め切りに間に合わないかどうかを尋ねるので、この状況で何をするかについて適切な答えを考える必要があります。 2番目の質問は、時間管理の問題にどのように対処するかにもう少し焦点を当てています。 面接の前に、回答としていくつかの例を準備することが常に最善です。 他の質問でも、架空の状況を調査するように求められます。 「仕事中に問題が発生した場合、どのように解決しますか?」 「職場では、うまくやっていない人がいます。彼らと仲良くするためにあなたは何をしますか?」 どんな人と仲良くならないのか、その状況で何をするのかなど、より対人的な問題に対処します。私はあなたの答えの中で、あなたが仲良くしていない特定のタイプの人はいないことを本当に強調しますが、もしあれば、あなたはこの種の問題を克服するためにあなたのコミュニケーションスキルを使うでしょう。 「職場の同僚がいる場合、この状況にどのように取り組むかについて同意しませんか?どうやって理解するのですか?」 この質問は、同僚と意見の相違があるかどうかを尋ねています。ここでも、回答の中でコミュニケーションスキルを強調し、人々とうまくやっていることを明確にしようと思います。 「難しい人にどう対処しますか?」 これは前の質問と似ていますが、面接官は、他の人が困難だった場合にどうするかをより直接的に尋ねています。難しい同僚ではなく、難しい顧客の観点から考えることができます。あなたの適用可能な経験とスキル、そして面接の本質的な部分はあなたの長所についてですが、面接官はあなたの短所についても尋ねるかもしれません。「あなたの長所/短所について教えてください」。そして、あなたの弱点の例を提供してください。経験則として、面接の前に3つの長所の例を準備する必要があります。苦手なことについては、それをどのように克服しているかについての説明も含める必要があります。 あるいは、面接官があなたの経験について直接尋ねることもあります。例えば: 「あなたの経験はどのようにポジションと一致すると思いますか?」 たとえば、面接対象の仕事に適した特定の職務について話すことができます。同様の質問ですが、スキルに関しては次のようになります。 「あなたのスキルはどのようにポジションと一致すると思いますか?」 「自分を他の人と比較すると、どのように違う仕事をしますか?」 これは答えるのが難しい質問かもしれませんが、あなたはあなたの個人的な資質を強調することができます。多くの仕事で、面接官はあなたのコミュニケーションスキルがあなたの個人的な資質や強みの1つとしてどのようにランク付けされるかについて興味を持っているので、「新しいアイデアを考えたら、それについて上司をどのように説得しますか?」 それはアイデアを持ち、それについて人々をどのように説得するかについてです。あなたの答えに含めるために過去の例を考えることは役に立ちます。

4. Further Interview rounds and procedure

Some particular interview questions that can catch many people off guard: “What are your merits? How would they be beneficial to the company?” The problem is with the word benefit which might lead you to think this question is about job benefits, but in fact actually they want to know how you would be a benefit for the company. Finally, as a foreigner they may be interested in knowing more about your Japanese skills by asking straightforward: “Please tell us about your Japanese level.” You can answer this with information about your Japanese studies, any JLPT exams you have taken as well as any relevant experiences. Of course, the best way to knock it out of the park is to speak great Japanese throughout the interview! The interviewers may also want to know more about any achievements you have listed in your application or mentioned during the course of the interview. You’ll then hear this question: “Please tell us about something that you achieved? How did you achieve it?” This question means up until now what have you achieved, and what was the process to achieve those things. It’s very important to have prepared specific answers. For example, you can talk about how you supervised a team which achieved its sales targets – but you must also specify what those targets were, how they were achieved, and the importance of teamwork throughout the process. Personal questions The interviewer may finish with some questions that are a bit more general and personal, such as: “What are your thoughts about your career? What kind of job do you want to have?” In this case they are asking you what you think about your career and what kind of position you would ideally like to do. It is best to align your answer with the expectations of the position you have applied for. They may also ask for a little information about your hobbies: “What is your hobby?” Here you can answer with anything relevant about yourself and your hobbies. And it would be best if they are somewhat related to the job you are currently applying for. Asking the interviewer questions It is best to ask at least a couple of questions at the end of an interview, such as asking why the position become vacant, what kind of person would be successful in the job and to ask for more details about the position. You need to ensure that you use polite language while asking any and all questions. End the interview on a high note When the interview has ended, you need to stand once more, place yourself next to your chair and say a simple: “Thank you very much.” “doumo arigatou gozaimashita”. You then bow, walk to the door, turn around and say “Shitsurei Shimas” while bowing. After you have gone through the door, you should bow one more time just before you close the door.

4. 次の面接過程

多くの人を困らせる可能性のあるいくつかの特定の面接の質問: 「あなたのメリットは何ですか?それらは会社にとってどのように有益でしょうか?」 問題は、福利厚生という言葉にあり、この質問は仕事上の福利厚生に関するものだと思われるかもしれませんが、実際には、彼らはあなたが会社にとってどのように福利厚生になるかを知りたがっています。 最後に、外国人として、彼らは簡単に尋ねることによってあなたの日本語のスキルについてもっと知りたいと思うかもしれません: 「あなたの日本語レベルについて教えてください。」 これには、日本研究、受験したJLPT試験、および関連する経験に関する情報で答えることができます。もちろん、公園からそれをノックアウトするための最良の方法は、インタビューを通して素晴らしい日本語を話すことです! 面接官はまた、あなたが申請書に記載した、または面接の過程で言及した業績についてもっと知りたいと思うかもしれません。次に、次の質問が聞こえます。 「あなたが達成したことについて教えてください。どのようにしてそれを達成しましたか?」 この質問は、これまでに何を達成したか、そしてそれらを達成するためのプロセスは何であったかを意味します。具体的な回答を用意することは非常に重要です。たとえば、販売目標を達成したチームをどのように監督したかについて話すことができますが、それらの目標が何であったか、どのように達成されたか、プロセス全体でのチームワークの重要性も指定する必要があります。 個人的な質問として面接官は、次のような、もう少し一般的で個人的な質問で終了する場合があります。 「あなたのキャリアについてどう思いますか?どんな仕事をしたいですか?」 この場合、彼らはあなたがあなたのキャリアについてどう思うか、そしてあなたが理想的にどのようなポジションになりたいかをあなたに尋ねています。あなたの答えをあなたが応募したポジションの期待に合わせるのが最善です。 彼らはまたあなたの趣味についての少しの情報を求めるかもしれません。たとえば、「ご趣味は何ですか?」ここでは、あなた自身とあなたの趣味に関連するものなら何でも答えることができます。そして、それらがあなたが現在応募している仕事にいくらか関連しているなら、それは最高でしょう。 面接官に質問することについて、面接の最後に、なぜポジションが空席になるのか、どのような人が仕事に成功するのか、ポジションの詳細を尋ねるなど、少なくとも2、3の質問をするのが最善です。すべての質問をするときは、丁寧な言葉を使うようにする必要があります。 高音でインタビューを終了する。インタビューが終わったら、もう一度立って、椅子の横に身を置き、簡単に言う必要があります。 「どうも、ありがとうございました。」それからお辞儀をし、ドアまで歩いて振り返り、お辞儀をしながら「失礼します」と言います。ドアを通り抜けたら、ドアを閉める直前にもう一度お辞儀をする必要があります。

Japan has its unique business doing ways and culture. Therefore is very much required to get deep information about Japanese business mannerisms and etiquettes.

Of course the backbone is learning Japanese language because it gives automatically a deep sense of Japanese culture and behavior. To summarize it in short, we can consider a few points like: 1. Sharing knowledge: There is a great importance of sharing knowledge while working in Japanese company as Japanese people like to co-operate and help and thus communicate among themselves the status of work going on frequently. There is a phenomenon of Groupism in Japan prevalent since ages and Japanese society has learnt to use this phenomenon in a very positive manner. You can visualize this in their work culture, service industries and in general life also. So as a foreigner it also gets imbibed in us and also there are few terms like HoRenSo (Hokoku, Renraku, Soudan) which means Informing, communicating and consulting. These terms are given special training with examples and various scenarios and in the end it really feels useful and helpful dealing with Japanese coworkers especially seniors. There is lot to speak about the training stuff like Share your knowledge. ...Be yourself. ...Realize that you are there to do more than just your job. ...Let them tell you story frankly...

6. What about Holidays while working in Japan?

It is very much said about Japanese society being very hard-working that gives us an impression of working in Japan is extremely tiring because in Japan people always keep busy in work. But it doesn’t mean that they have any lesser amount of holidays. In fact it is observed that working in Japan gets you more holidays as a whole compared to most of the countries. Japan has many fixed holidays as well as a local region-wise holiday system too. They have golden week, Obon week and New-Year week as holiday and in addition, many companies have in house holidays also. Japan has sat-sun fixed holidays system and another very interesting fact is about a gazette holiday if it comes on Sunday or any other holiday, the next day will become a holiday automatically. All full time employees are guaranteed the minimum 10-12 days of paid annual leave per year after serving an initial 6 months of employment, irrespective of race or gender. All genders in Japan are truly respected just like the lowest crime rate compared to whole world. Also, Japan has 14 festival holidays that is very much higher than compared to many countries. So it is actually a myth to say that Japanese people have no holiday and they work harder than any other worker on the planet.

For example Travel Company etc. In case you go into other core competency like engineering, they will focus on your coding skills for example in case of IT then, if not advanced, at least the basic Japanese understanding so that you can survive travel, shopping or understanding basic society norms required to live legally in Japan. For work visa, it will be the company and not you who are going to apply for the certificate of eligibility required for Visa if you get through with the interview process. Now the trickier part is that if the Japanese company is really going to apply for your work visa in Japanese embassy, it will ensure that you at least start learning Japanese language for at least 180 hours of study which covers N5 and a bit of N4 level so that your visa application is smooth and successful. It is nearly impossible for embassy to issue visa if the candidate hasn’t started learning Japanese language. Therefore it is highly unlikely that the company itself starts with your interview in case you have zero knowledge of Japanese language. Now assuming that you have already started learning the language and culture of Japan, still it is a far sighted goal because there can be an interview waiting for you in the application process itself from the local immigration to check your Japanese spoken skills for the fitness levels to survive in Japan on your own. So it is highly recommended for the IT or other expert areas people to start learning at least basic Japanese language to ensure a Job in Japan. After all this is finished, you have to submit your docs to Japan by post. Mostly there are companies that do not require the originals and you can post the Xerox copies of your certificates. After the issuance of COE and the Visa when you apply again in your local immigration, you pack your bags and fly to the most beautiful, well cultured and the most advanced country of the world where there is so much to learn and gain in the job as well as outside the job that you cannot even imagine.

About Food and cooking in Japan

So if you want to go deep into the information about Japanese cuisine and how tasty and healthy it is, go check on Google but here we are going to discuss about how you can save your hard earned salary at the same time relishing the savors of Japan. Do first thing first. Check about your local food market because there are certainly the super-markets that are life saving in terms of healthy packed food items and also in other daily life necessities like stationary, utensils, clothes and stuff. There you can find a lot more variety and cost effective goods compared to normal street shops and surprisingly their quality is almost the same to the branded ones. Provided you are a great cook by yourself, there is no problem at all maintaining a balance between your time, labor, job and food cost effectiveness. However for those who are not so good in cooking or have no experience of cooking, it may seem sometimes challenging in the initial phase of their living in Japan since the home food cooking may require some extra efforts of gathering the raw material etc. However, Japanese cooking is little different and is surprisingly very easy and less time consuming if you have developed the Japanese taste. There are plenty of ready to cook items which even Japanese people use quiet often to save cost, time and energy. So based upon all this information, my advice is to go slow and learn to adapt first. Go and watch various markets, your food of taste and then plan according to your interest, time availability and taste.

About Changing Job inside Japan

Before getting into it, let’s first understand Your Japanese working visa is valid until it expires, even if you change your job. If you change jobs, for whatever reason, your former employer cannot take your visa away, and you can work at a new company if the type of activities remains the same. However, the Immigration office has the authority to revoke your visa if you don't find a new job within 3 months after you leave your previous job. If you wish to change your job to a job outside the scope of activities defined by your status of residence, you must do your own “Application for Change of Status of Residence” by yourself before changing jobs. You can apply to that change at any time during the period of stay. As long as you have time left on your working visa, you can usually stay in Japan for up to three months without being employed. So, it's not a problem if you want to have a month or two off in Japan after quitting, but you are legally required to inform Immigration within 14 days of your last official workday. The process of serving a notice period before leaving a job depends on the company to company but in general it is almost same as any other country.

What about Transportation in Japan?

Japan has a robust transportation system, in-fact it is most robust in Asia and the world. Today Japan famous due to its technology and Bullet trains. Not only this, in Tokyo, Osaka, and some other large cities, buses and cars serve as a secondary means of public transportation, complementing the train and subway networks. Since it is present everywhere with its world famous punctuality, no-one even worries about the train coming or not even if it is raining heavily in monsoon because it is obvious to come on time. It is already written in the maps and apps that means it is going to arrive at that particular time so that you can plan your schedules with minute by minute precision and there is no haste about arriving in time for a meeting etc. Japanese people are always punctual and are on time is due to the fact that their transportation network is highly planned and precise. Transportation in Japan can be little expensive though as it has a high quality of hygiene and cleanliness maintained everywhere be it stations, Bus stops or airports etc. Moving by taxi is also considered a costly affair and used by many Japanese only in case of a sudden necessity like missing their last train at night. Shinkansen is another example of being the world-famous not just known for its speed, but also for its amazing safety record and punctuality. With careful design and precise Japanese system, there is almost no delay from schedule recorded in Japan till its beginning. Shinkansen runs on their dedicated train tracks, which contributes to the incredible departure and arrival schedule. Even after more than 50 years in operation and 10 billion travelers on Shinkansen, there are no passenger deaths due to train accidents. The total time consumed by a traveler using Shinkansen for example from Tokyo to Osaka can come even lesser than travelling in an airplane due to luggage and boarding nuisances. That can also be a reason why travelling from Shinkansen is a costly affair and it can be considered for those people who have the value of their time more than their money.
