im stil trying to figure out a way to make money when in tokyo next year..


as teaching english isnt looking like a way to go (as i dont have a degree yet), what other ways can i make money over there? un-visa'd bar work? sell vintage clothing from back home? store work? private 1-to-1 english teaching?!


anyone had any experience of workin out in JP without a work visa?


cheers!

hi TH

without a BA i think you make about 250,000 a month.
as for level of japanese lang - ZERO
level of teaching experience - ZERO

i've heard not as many people are applying for jobs so lots of companies are desperate. including mine.

You might be able to pick up bar work on a tourist visa, but it ain't worth the hassle, believe me....I have known a few people do it now and again...and also a few English schools don't do visa checks extensively.
I doubt you will get store work if you don't speak Japanese.
English teaching seems to be the way if you aren't transfered from a company in your own country.
You need no Japanese in 95% of English teaching jobs. Some pay decent money, too.
