What types of jobs do most expatriate spouses/partners have? Locally based or telecommuting? Full-time or part-time? Can you comment on local salary scales?
It is hard to find a job off base since you need to speak Japanese. If you find a job in an international school you will need to pay taxes. If you are a sofa holder and work off base I think the rate is 28 percent but I can not remember the exact rate. There are jobs on base for civilian or contractors. - Jul 2021
