Recipients of the JASSO Scholarships are required to be in Japan for them to receive the scholarships.

We will notify you of the signing period at the beginning of each semester. Opening Hours: Weekdays 10:00AM to 4PM


Part-time Jobs and Internships

If you wish to work part-time or do a paid internship, you must obtain permission for part-time work (shikakugai katsudou kyoka) BEFORE starting work. You can apply for permission at the immigration section of the airport upon your arrival, or apply at the Tokyo Regional Immigration Bureau after your arrival.
Make sure that the work place is not in conflict with the Immigration Control Act and choose appropriate work for international students. There are some places you cannot work at such as adult entertainment businesses, including jobs related to gambling or sexual services.


Japan is a relatively safe country, but you must be careful not to become involved in avoidable accidents. For example, in Japan, natural disasters resulting from natural phenomena such as earthquakes, typhoons, tsunami, and avalanches can take place. Under these circumstances, make sure to seek accurate and correct information from the media and you should not behave carelessly and put yourself at risk. Similarly, if you wish to have fun and enjoyment by going to the seaside to swim or the mountains to hike or climb, please make sure not to put yourself in unnecessary danger. If you drive a car, or ride a motorcycle or bicycle while in Japan, you must take out appropriate insurance coverage to protect yourself and others.

Temporary Leave

When you leave Japan temporarily, you must submit a【Temporary Leave Form】at least 1 week before you leave. Please also make sure to notify us by email on your return.
