    Hi, the first things you need to do is to signup at hellowork https://www.hellowork.go.jp it is operate by the Japanese government, after you signup at their local office they will arrange interview for you. Remember finding a job is not that difficult, you just need to ask.

    Hi dhiren. You could try looking in free magazines like Kansai Flea Market and Kansai Scene. They have part time job listings in their classified section. Good luck!

    Hey dhiren. How's the job hunt going? Have you had a look at craigslist Osaka? If there are any part time jobs listed for Kobe on craigslist, they will be on the Osaka version. Might be worth a look! http://osaka.craigslist.jp/ Also, have you been to the Kobe International Community Center? They have a message board which might have some part-time jobs listed. http://www.kicc.jp/kicc/kicc/index_eng.html

    Hi, there are some great suggestions for finding work posted already. Just a reminder to make sure you are allowed to work on your student visa. If not, head to your local immigration office to get permission to work before you start.

What's the best online teaching option?

I'm looking to fill some free time with online teaching, either through Skype or the company's native platform. I don't want to do private lessons where I have to gather my own students; I want to work under a company. Do you guys have any recommendations for that? If you do, could you give me a bit more info about pay and your own experiences/what you've heard?

Sending parcels overseas with Japan Post

I think I may have touched on this in one or two blog posts, and this is as much an airing of frustration as it is a question. For the last few years I've used but one Japan Post office, close to where I work. I'm a regular there when it comes to sending parcels home for birthdays, Christmas etc. In the early day, I would just be asked to fill out that little green slip about the contents of the parcel, and would also be asked if there was a letter inside. (To which I always replied "No," as it makes things more expensive.) The next stage was that staff would then started to look at what I had written on the form and if there was anything that might be construed as needing a battery, they would ask me to write "No battery" if one wasn't included. Are they ever? Fine. Then things moved onto asking me what was in the parcel before handing me the green slip, so I felt like I was having to announce to the office staff what a cheap skate I am when it comes to presents. And then we would do the green slip, and the "battery" questions. Now another layer has been added -- on top of the questions, the battery check and the green form -- I now get a separate form, a kind of tick-the-box checklist through which I declare that I'm not sending any cigarette lighters, matches, sprays etc lest I face prosecution. Then we get onto the questions, and all the rest of it. I'm just wondering if others are being taken through the same process when they send things overseas with JP, or is it just that particular branch ... or just me. It's kind of taking the fun out of trying to be a good uncle, brother, son, friend etc. Still, at least they've stopped asking me if there's a letter in the parcel.
