For those who have obtained a Student visa in Japan, the “Eligibility for a Status of Residence” in Japan limits within “study activities” at the language school.
Part-time job, as the activity after school, therefore is called “activity other than that permitted under the status of residence”.
By applying for the permission to engage in activities other than that permitted under the status of residence, one may engage in part-time jobs.
Application for Permission
Please submit the following documents to the Immigration Bureau of Japan.

800~1,000 JPY/Hour（The amount differs depending on the type of job.）
The estimated income is about 100,000 JPY a month if one works 28 hours a week.
It is hard to find a part-time job if one’s Japanese language has not reached a certain level.
We do not recommend that students with basic Japanese language skills spend too much time on finding part-time jobs during the first 6 months they arrive
Japan. It is advised to focus on the language learning in the beginning, which usually secures a better job opportunity.
Please be noticed that students with a temporary visitor’s visa may not engage in part-time job activities.
Ask the teachers for more advice!
