Support for working Holiday
Working Holiday at Kyoto
Working holiday programs are, according to Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), “intended to make it possible for the youth of Japan and its partner countries/regions to enter each country/region primarily for the purpose of spending holidays while allowing them to engage in employment as an incidental activity of their holidays for the purpose of supplementing their travel funds.” Japanese government provide Working Holiday Visa to approximately 10,000 people a year and Kyoto also has many Working Holiday visitors these days.
The main purpose of Working Holiday Program is to obtain broader view through the life in another country and culture. Thus, Kyoto can be said as one of the most meaningful destination of the program in Japan because of its cultural value made through long history as previous Japanese capital since 794. Furthermore, as a worldwide famous city for sightseeing, Kyoto is getting more and more important to play the role for better international friendship.
