Japan's labor laws are among the strongest globally. Companies in Japan cannot fire employees at will, which is not the case in other countries like the US.

How you can be a part of it

Getting into Japan as a tech employee is easier than many assume. The essentials are relevant
knowledge and key skills—and these are easily attainable

The real problem there isn't finding the opportunity—it's realizing that the
opportunity exists in the first place.

There’s a clear path to a rewarding career in Japan, but too often, this pathway remains hidden
because the right guidance is hard to come by.

That's why we have created this playbook.

After spending over ten years in Japan, we've come to understand and appreciate the
Japanese market and the unique lifestyle it offers.

Living and working here, we've observed a significant gap: Too many talented individuals from around
the world are completely unaware of the possibilities that await them in Japan.

They don't recognize the career openings or the personal growth opportunities
that are readily available.

It became clear to us that, although there is much to gain, not enough people know how to begin.

That's where our playbook comes into play. It was assembled by a team of software engineers, product
managers, and UI/UX designers who arrived in Japan with no prior knowledge and are now thriving at top
companies —like Nissan, Google Japan, Toyota and Mercari

Each contributor brings a decade of experience to the table. Having gone through the complexities and
challenges of finding a job in Japan ourselves, we've developed a comprehensive playbook to simplify
the process for tech professionals like you.

This playbook is designed to equip you with the tools and knowledge you need not just to come to
Japan, but to succeed and thrive here.

Testimonials

Computer Science
Student
from Philippines

I am currently studying computer science and have always been curious about the tech scene in Japan. This playbook has opened my eyes to the opportunities available there, especially for internships. I've applied to several internships at companies I learned about through the playbook, which hires foreign interns. I'm hopeful and excited about the possibility of landing an internship in Japan. The community support from the playbook is also great; it’s really helpful to be able to ask questions and get advice from others who have applied to similar companies

Indian Software
Professional
at Infosys

Working at Infosys was rewarding, especially since my current client is a Japanese company. I really like the culture, so I was eager to work in Japan. A friend recommended this playbook, and it was straightforward and very helpful. It guided me in finding companies that suited my skills and helped me prepare for interviews. I connected with recruiters who set up interviews at Rakuten, Mercari, and PayPay. I received an offer from Rakuten as a senior software developer. I scheduled a 1-on-1 session, which was particularly useful. It helped me negotiate my salary, and I got 15% more than what was initially offered.

Junior developer from
Bangladesh

I'm from Dhaka, Bangladesh, where I worked as a junior developer. I always dreamed of working in Japan. The playbook has been a great help, it connected me with recruiters, and I'm hopeful to schedule some interviews soon. I really appreciate the community that comes with the playbook, where I can ask any questions I have. It's been great for learning about the corporate culture in Japan and getting practical tips for relocating.

Cloud Architect from India

I was only passively looking for opportunities in Japan while working as a cloud architect for an automotive company in India. Through this playbook, I discovered Woven, a subsidiary of Toyota focused on cutting-edge technologies like 3D mapping and autonomous driving. I applied to the company and was initially unsuccessful, but I didn't give up. Two months later, I reapplied and landed an architect role with the Woven City team. The support I received from the creators of 'Land a Tech Job in Japan' was invaluable. This playbook has proven incredibly effective, and I definitely recommend it to anyone looking to move to Japan.

AI Researcher from France

After completing my AI research in France and spending some time at Tokyo University for my PhD research, I developed a deep affection for Japan and decided to pursue a career there. This playbook was a great find - it showed me so many companies in Japan that are looking for AI skills. I was surprised to learn that many companies in Japan recruit for AI & Data Science. It not only connected me with tech leaders in Japan but also guided me through the visa process.

American SDE3 at Lyft

My wife is Japanese. After many discussions with my wife, we decided to move to Japan. I was working at Lyft in the U.S., but since Lyft doesn't operate in Japan, I needed to find new opportunities. This playbook was really effective in explaining everything from the tech landscape in Japan to the top companies that recruit foreign talent. Even though I had visited Japan three times and knew about the tech ecosystem, I still learned many new things from this playbook. It helped me narrow down top companies that are open to hiring international talent. I was connected to four recruiters through this platform, who are now helping me schedule interviews with these companies. I’m hopeful about securing an opportunity soon. The community support has been incredible for networking and getting practical advice.
