Hi sis simplykristine08 hopefully working visa sana. kamusta kaya mag work dun?
Hi sis! I  was able to visit Tokyo  before and Osaka ( I have and aunt who lives there with my Jap Uncle) and I  could say  ok mag work sa Japan as long as you  have "Legal" Papers because according to  my aunt napaka higpit ng Japanese Immigration sa mga tnts lalau when caught na, she said something about being Block listed and all that.


The work is good , however the cost of living there is expensive also , kaya  dun ko  naintindihan why  so many of my  Jap friends  who  come here in the states buy a lot of branded products , because omg ang prices in Japan parang it nagiging doble

Yes, ginto talaga ang presyo ng bilihin sa japan. And softdrinks in can is like 120-150 jpy. So that's time 50+. Lol. True na mahigpit ang japan sa mga tnts. 2 beses na ako nasita before and they asked for y passport, kala ako tnt ako. Tourist lang ako nun. Eto ang alam ko, once tnt ka ata at nahuli ka, kulong ka at may investigation pa. Pero pag tnt ka at sumuko ka, hindi ka na ata makukulong pero may ban ka for 5 years, you cannot enter japan sa 5 taon na yan at syempre uwi ka ng pilipinas. Yan ang alam ko.

gumawa na ko thread dati for filipinos in japan nawala na ata. haha
i'm from tokyo! but i'm half japanese half-filipina so wala akong problema sa visa. Pero mahirap na din kasi work dito. mas maganda tapos ka. madaming english teaching related job you just have to prove na native level ka. kasi maraming pinoy magaling mag-english pero malakas accent..( di ko ito alam noon napansin ko na lang nung maraming nag-point out na i don't have filipino english accent) kasi more on accent ang ituturo mo dito.
now i am in a japanese company sinwerte lang. pero mas maganda talaga kung may plan ka na magwork dito magaral ka na ng japanese and passer ka ng JLPT N2.  :)

^^sis pwede ka naman mag-try. kung gusto mo talaga get some english teaching certification. you can try sites like Gaijinpot.com maraming companies na nag-sposponsor ng visa pero mostly for westerners lang. maganda pumunta ka dito and you apply here.

^ALT din ako dati for elementary schools. did it for 2 years. masaya pero maninibago ka kasi ibang-iba system nila dito lalo sa pag-didisiplina ng bata.  ;D

Anyone who can help me buy Japanese products and have it sent to my Philippine address? Feeling ko kasi mas makakamura ako kesa derecho dito paship. :( If may uuwi din senyo baka pwede pasabay at magbayad na lang ako senyo. I can pay my orders online, yung shipping lang prob ko.

To give you an idea of what I really want, trading card game sleeves lang naman. Etong mga andito: http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?scode=CGD2-49243&page=top%2Fsearch%2Flist%3Fs_cate3%3D915%24pagemax%3D100%24getcnt%3D0%24pagecnt%3D1

Kung may alam kayong means para makamura ako, please let me know. I will greatly appreciate it.

TIA!

ako naman working visa dito sa tokyo..
im working as IT engineer (basically doing system  programming) here.
7 years na rin ako dito..

before thru agency ako dito na ang tawag ay haken kaisha.
mostly kasi ng employees sa mga company under ng haken.

but after years naman you can look for companies that will hire you directly..
fortunately nakahanap naman ako..tyagaan lang talaga and
you must level up your japanese skills too..

Hello, Same problem ako with liezljfk. I want to buy a watch and bag there kasi its cheaper than others na nakita ko and its limited edition. My worry is since medyo pricey for me yun items and the seller is willing to ship it to manila with insurance, eh kinakabahan naman ako sa tax. I know resellers of Japanese products do cargo JP to MNL pero i'm looking for recommendations sana. Yun tried and tested nyo na sana. Similar to Johnny air or Manila forwarders, Thanks :)

Problem ko kasi is tax. Dami horror stories ng tax dito. Johnny air or manila forwarders kasi included na tax sa shipping rates. I'm not looking for the cheapest shipping rates, im looking for shipping that includes tax na sana if meron. UPS, DHL, even EMS dito pa din charge ng tax and nakakatakot yun lol.

^^ hindi ba sis dito na sa atin nagchacharge ng tax kung meron man tax na babayaran? I mean, iba ata ang tax na kasama sa shipping, possibleng tax yan sa country na binilhan mo, pero dito satin pwede pa rin sila magsingil mg tax (if applicable sa item na binili mo). Not sure though.

Ako kasi i buy sa amazon tapos may tax na kasama doon. Pero dito sa dubai tax free talaga except pag more than 280 dollars ata ang amount na shinop ko.

I know in general dito talaga i chacharge yun tax if there's any kaya i pointed out that I'm looking for a courier similar to Johnny Air's service wherein pag nagbayad ka ng shipping, kasama na tax so pag dating dito i claim na lang item and wala ng babayaran pang iba. May mga similar din kasi services na ganyan sa japan but most ng nakita ko is purely balikbayan box, wala pa ko nakita for small items.
