Do I have to start a job immediately after I arrive in Japan? Do I need to work at all?

You don't have to start working immediately upon your arrival if you prefer not to. If you can afford it, you don't even have to work at all.

We provide a Job Counselling Session once a week, and we take our participants to the Japanese Employment Office every week. You can avail of these services at any time during your Working Holiday Visa, not necessarily right after your arrival.

Even though you hold a Working Holiday Visa, you are not obligated to work. It's also entirely possible to focus solely on studying Japanese or exploring the country through travel.
