Certificate of Eligibility

Hi there. So! The embassy of Japan has told me that if I want to have a long term visa I need (mandatory) a job and a certificate of eligibility and there's no way around this. The amount for working holidays is nearly 10 000 € and it's a lot. Any suggestions on how I can get a good job and a good presentation to have a job in Japan. I wanted to be a teacher.

    My first recommendation would be to look online for jobs that have visa sponsorship as part of their hiring process. Check Gaijinpot: https://jobs.gaijinpot.com/job/index/lang/en/keywords/Visa+sponsorship/orderby/latest The job at this link, for example, is in Osaka (where I think I remember you saying is where you plan to be based) and has visa sponsorship available for a teaching position: https://jobs.gaijinpot.com/job/view/lang/en/keywords/Visa+sponsorship/orderby/latest/job_id/126461#.WqrvSOhubZY

    Online searches typically turn up quite a few English teaching jobs in Japan (although if you're location specific it can limit things a little). Fluent English speakers who have graduated from university usually can find enough teaching jobs to choose from if they aren't so specific about wages, location, hours e.t.c. I think what some people will do is just accept the first offer they get, just to get the certificate of eligibility / visa. After getting to Japan you'll then have more time and probably more options to find a job with better pay / conditions. When I got my certificate of eligibility (some years ago now) you typically had to have some kind of degree / major. I know people who got one without this, but it was harder for them and they had to have recommendations from people / potential employers based in Japan. I'm not sure what the situation is now but it's perhaps something you should check.

    @Tomuu thank you so much more your reply. I have a major but it hasn't been easy to have answers from companies because some require the N1 level of Japanese and I'm just a N5 because I haven't had the chance to take the rest of them. Although I was going to take the N3. But I'm still looking. People say "patience is a virtue", but it doesn't apply to me. :P I wish I could know how to in rich my resume or create more visibility to employers.

    Online teaching job offers are basically on every employment-related online search engines in Japan. You can find some companies that offer a working visa. You may try to apply online first and if you ever get hired, they will help you process everything. Certificate of Eligibility is basically like an approval from the Japanese Immigration. You need it to be able to obtain a visa. I hope this helps.

What shampoo brand do you recommend for dandruff?

I have been dealing with this dandruff situation for quite a while now and I still can't seem to figure out how to get rid of this problem. I have tried several shampoo brands/products like head and shoulders, ANGFA organic shampoo and the Honey Deep Moist Shampoo. And none of them worked so far. Some say it's because of hot shower. Well I do shower every day, but I don't use hot shower all the time. I rinse my hair thoroughly after applying shampoo and conditioner. I also tried applying shampoo every other day just to make my hair less dry but I still none of those tricks are working. If there is a product that you recommend that suits every man's budget then I would appreciate it so much.

What are the must-sees in your prefecture (beyond the big three)?

Sustainable tourism is a hot topic that some City Cost members have covered in their blogs. For those correspondents outside the Big Three - Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka - what do you recommend visitors must see in your prefecture? My home base is Chiba Prefecture. I highly recommend visitors check out Narita Omotesando to connect with Edo's past and visit Shinshoji to get a sense of the history of Japan. The adjacent city, Sakura, is another I recommend for the National History Museum and Edo to Taisho era streetscapes.

What sakura apps / websites are you using in 2024?

What websites or Apps are you using to keep track of the bloom stages of cherry blossoms in 2024? I usually use a mix of Tenki.jp, Yahoo and Jorudan and another one that I have forgotten! (I delete them at the end of each season to free up space on my phone). I occasionally use the app from JMA, but I don't like its set up. Are there any other Apps or websites you recommend? TIA

What's in your toshikoshi soba?

What do you put in your toshikoshi soba? One year I sauteed some chicken and naganegi to start a broth augmented with tsuyu, cooked the soba separately, and served the broth with kamaboko slices.
