Join us on one of our incredible two-month international internships in Tokyo, Japan’s energetic capital city. Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of a global powerhouse of business and innovation.
Tokyo is the largest metropolitan area in the world, and as such contains every niche market you could think of. From food, to fashion, to entertainment, Tokyo provides a distinct cultural twist and mastery of craft that makes every experience unique. The juxtaposition of robed monks standing alongside robot mascots is representative of the Tokyo citizens’ love of old and new. Using the most powerful public trains in the world you can be launched to the nearest pristine temple or imperial palace for a relaxing evening. Working in Tokyo offers interns the opportunity to learn the business culture of Japan as well as experience the exciting bustle of city life.
Tokyo is known for the flashy electronics and machinery that make up most of its industry but there is even more the city has to share. Tokyo has a large manufacturing and service industry that span a breadth of opportunities for interns to take part in. Just as Tokyo offers a little bit of everything, all of the sectors have the chance to learn from one of the most competitive and expansive markets in the world.

Program Fees (All in USD)
In order to begin your internship, you will need to submit an electronic application to our program. You can do this on our Apply page.
Upon receiving your application, it will be reviewed by your nearest Regional Team who will assess your suitability for our programs.
Once your application is reviewed, our Admissions Advisers will reach out to you via email to schedule an Advising Session.
3. Advising Session
Those applicants who are successful at the application review stage will be invited for an Advising Session with one of our Admissions Advisers. The Advising Session will be 20-30 minutes long where we will ask:
- Your interest in our programs
- Your relevant past working and voluntary experience
- Your sector choices and preferred type of host company
- Your personal and professional goals
4. Program Confirmation
A few days after your Advising Session, you’ll be informed of the outcome of your application to join our internship program by email. If you are successful, you’ll receive an offer which will formally invite you to join the program and details on how to confirm your place with a Program Acceptance Fee.
5. Placement Confirmation
Once you have submitted your Acceptance Fee and First Installment, our Placement teams will officially start reaching out to our Host Company partners to confirm your company and job description with our Placement Supervisors. The sooner you confirm your placement on our programs, the sooner we can get you more information on your placement! Please note that early applicants get priority for most competitive host company opportunities.
With CRCC Asia’s Placement First Guarantee, you will only be required to pay the final installment when you have received a confirmed placement from your Adviser.
If you have any questions about this procedure please feel free to contact us for more information.
6. Safe Travels!
Your Adviser will work with you to ensure we have all of your relevant travel details (flights, insurance, special requests, etc) and prepare you for your arrival in your program destination.
A week before your Program Start Date, our on-the-ground Program Management staff will introduce themselves and provide you with all the necessary information for your arrival. We look forward to welcoming you to our Programs!
An internship in Japan that is less than 90 days without remuneration is regarded as a voluntary activity, therefore no visa is required if you are citizen of a country on this list.
For countries that do not benefit from visa exemption, you are required to apply for a Temporary Visitor Visa at your local Japanese Embassy/Consulate-General. Whilst we provide guidance on the visa application process, the cost of your visa is not included in the Program Fee. It is recommended you submit the visa application at least 4 weeks prior to your Program Start Date. Immigration regulations are constantly changing so it is advised you pay attention to updates on the aforementioned list.
