Ages 21-29 will be eligible for a one-year working holiday visa which needs to be secured before arriving in Japan. Check out the Japanese embassy website for details on how to apply for a working-holiday visa. The application may take a week or so unless the Japanese foreign ministry as set up an online application system....!!!

I will be happy to answer any questions or fears you may have. But time is running short, so if you are interested in this life changing opportunity, apply and get your visa application in as soon as you can.
