In addition to all the pre-departure support provided in our Japan Send Off package, we arrange your adventure in Japan to begin with two weeks of Japanese language lessons in Tokyo, Kyoto or Fukuoka.
On the weekends, you can add fun courses to learn about Japan’s traditional and pop culture – tea ceremonies, calligraphy, cosplay, manga, and more! After class, join movie and game nights, field trips, festival outings, karaoke and international parties to make the most of your time in Japan. Once you are finished with your language lessons, our team can assist you in your job search, help you find long-term accommodation, open a bank account, and more.
Flights, medical insurance, visa and/or work permit application fees, local transportation, food & rent.
A working holiday visa allows you to stay in Japan for up to one year to work, travel and experience living in Japan like a local. Working holiday visa holders are able to obtain temporary or part-time positions to help fund their travels around the country.
Most jobs for foreigners require beginner to intermediate levels of Japanese so after your language lessons you will be better equipped to find a job in Japan. Once you have completed your course, our team will assist you with revising your resume and provide recommendations and resources to help you begin your job search in Japan.

Year-round! Japanese language courses begin every Monday. If you have not taken Japanese lessons previously in a classroom setting, the complete beginner Japanese language courses begin on the first Monday of each month.
Please note: We typically ask for three months’ notice before you plan to leave Canada so we can get your documents in order and so that you can make the most of our support preparing you for your adventure abroad.
