Living in Sapporo

Full-time and part-time jobs

In terms of wage and work hours, workers in Japan enjoy legal protections against discrimination based on nationality or religion. Foreigners working in Japan are entitled to the same legal rights as Japanese workers. It is important for foreigners to educate themselves about Japanese labor laws and systems.

To work in Japan, you must have a residence status that allows you to work. Your job must be one that is permitted under that status.

To seek employment, you are free to visit the national Public Employment Security Office ("Hello Work") free of charge, or to use private job placement enterprises licensed as such by the Minister of Labor.
