Got a summer vacation with nothing to do? Need some extra cash to go on a trip? Whatever the reason, there are some exciting opportunities for part-time job seekers during the summer season (typically within June-September). Some of the jobs do not require Japanese speaking skills, but you can get to experience the Japanese “baito” (part time job) culture while cashing in some good money!



Swimming Pool Crew (Guard / Receptionist)


This is arguably one of the most popular part- time work in the summer. This is a job that pays well and lets you enjoy summer to the fullest.

If you are the athletic type, you can join the guard crew to keep swimmers safe. This job may also require minimal Japanese. If you are hesitant about spending many hours in the sun, you can also be a receptionist, though the pay tends to be less.



Live-in workers at resorts


If you are a student and have a long holiday, you can choose to work at a live-in resort worker. You can enjoy a hot summer at a resort hotel while making money! And since you will be working for many hours everyday, you can actually earn some serious cash. You can also make new friends with your coworkers, as you will be spending a lot of time together. Japanese skills may be needed, though the degree may depend on the job type and will less likely be difficult.

However, if you speak multiple languages besides Japanese (levels may vary), you may be given interpreting roles to help foreign visitors.
