    I can't speak with any great authority on this but in my experience, changing from one kind of visa to another in Japan is about having the correct documents and circumstance, and not having anything on your records for immigration officials to create problems about. I'm not aware of rules that say changing from "visa A" to "visa B" is or isn't possible. I think Japan immigration has a helpline these days which you can call to get the basic information about these things. Good luck!

    I switched from a humanities visa to an instructor visa pretty easily. The paperwork was given to me by my new company, but I had to go to immigration myself. As long as you can show that you are gainfully employed by your new employer (or about to be) and they are willing to sponsor the visa, there should be no problem.

    It should not be a big deal as long you as you have all the paperwork correctly. The homepage of the immigration office does not always list all necessary documents though, so it might be a good idea write an e-mail and ask if in your situation additional documents are required.

    I also recently switched from a dependent visa to a work visa here. Like some other respondents have already mentioned, provided you have the right documentation and it's all filled in correctly, the most painful part is probably going to be the wait you'll have at the immigration office! I imagine the process should be pretty straightforward if your employer plans to sponsor your visa, since I imagine they've probably done it before and know the system.

    If you have the documents from the company especially a contract or letter of offer stating your name, salary, working hours, contract length, it should be okay. But I'd also highly recommend make multiple trips to the immigration office, or at least make a call to get a list of things needed. I made a change before with proper documents, so it's definitely possible.

Your coffee recommendations for Shibuya/Shinjuku and surrounds!

I first visited Japan in 2012, and found that coffees other than Starbucks, Doutor or Boss were pretty hard to come by. Having lived in Melbourne for the past five years, I have had the privilege of having some of the best coffee at my doorstep which has unfortunately caused me to become quite discerning with my coffee choices haha. I know that coffee culture has changed quite significantly in Tokyo in recent years, and that there has been an explosion of international and Japanese roasteries popping up consistently. I'm interested to know more about your favourite kissaten or coffee shops, or any that you've found interesting!

Trip to Miyazaki this summer. Any recommendations?

Heading to Miyazaki, Kyushu this summer (4 nights, staying in Aoshima). Any recommendations on places to eat would be much appreciated. Also, any sightseeing spots? The priority is surfing but we'll have a car and will still have time to travel around a bit. Cheers!
