Internship Japan is a growing group of people working voluntarily (Non-Profit Organization) for the mission to establish and support a new and better system of internships in Japan.

We at Internship Japan believe that young and highly-motivated foreigners willing to work and study in Japan can be a great asset to Japan's business world. The Japanese language is one of the key points for us, so we believe in a joint combination of internships and language education. Most importantly, we strongly believe that interns should not incur any costs for finding an internship program.

Internship Japan officially registered as an Ippanshadanhōjin (一般社団法人), a form of non-profit organization in Japan, on the 24th of September 2014. The group formed in 2012 already. After years of rapid growth we are now ready to become even more professional with our work and support companies, organizations and internship-seekers from all over the world.

Our activities in the past and in the future:

  • Establish, promote and support a new system of internships in Japan
  • Create a law-safe and worry-free environment for companies and organizations taking interns
  • Help young foreigners to find internships in Japan (free of charge for the interns)
