Unpaid Internship


Company List

An internship in Japan is an unforgettable adventure, and it will certainly give you an edge at job interviews! See for yourself how Japanese businesses operate and experience real Japanese working culture. An important thing to remember is that Japan does not have an internship system like Western countries such as Germany do. Interns are treated the same way as any other employee, which means they have to start at the bottom and earn the trust in their skills from their superiors.

Asahi Nihongo offers internships in many different fields such as Architecture, Marketing, Trade, and more. We will select a company according to your information and preferences, help you prepare for the internship and assist you during your whole stay if needed. You may also do a language course before starting your internship if you feel the need to brush up your Japanese first. If you are a beginner, we recommend a course length of four weeks.

Your first internship week is a preparation week, where we will give you advice concerning working life in Japan and what you should pay attention to during your internship. We will also help you prepare the necessary documents for your company interview.
