Thanks in advance for sharing your experience,


Hello Julien,

I was born and raised in Osaka. So I think I can help to fill up some of your questions.

I haven't done any research and do not have any data. But as a jobseeker, I guess I could share something useful.

There are many vacancies in IT, food(restaurant) industries. These industries in Japan require hardworking and more number of people. (Probably because of unpaid overwork on a regular basis, less number of a day off, lots of employees quit)

Plus for English speakers, there are lots of vacancy at Eikaiwa school (private English-teaching school) These school always look for new instructors. This industry, I think, will grow up in the next 10 years thanks to the Olympics 2020.

My opinion above come from my experience. I have registered on some job agencies and websites to subscribe job-related information.

As a starter, hope this helps :)


Is anyone there who has just moved to Osaka recently and managed to find a job there?
Feel free to share your experience with me as I'm thinking of moving to Osaka next year to start a new life there !

I've been working with a wood-working company in Malaysia for the last 14 years.
I wanted to try something new by living abroad, why do I choose Japan, it's because I love the country though I don't speak Japanese at this moment, but guess I will soon if I manage to find a job there.

So I look forward to any of your useful fedback !
