I'm interested in finding out what the job situation is for part-timers.

There's a possibility that I'll be moving to Okinawa and I'll be looking for a part-time job.

My background here in mainland Japan is in the English conversation business so I prefer to stick with that.

Although I wouldn't mind working in a fish processing plant or even vegetable processing plant part-time.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

I seem to have missed this post... I've been on the lookout for jobs to pass along to other people, but they're typically full-time jobs that offer SOFA status.

As I recall, you have a proper visa to work here in Japan.

It shouldn't be too difficult to land a teaching job as that would probably be the easiest to get and be part-time, especially after the pandemic with a lot closing shop.

There are several reasons why I would want to relocate which is personal but it's very possible that in the future we just don't know what will take place.
I don't like the cold weather.
And the wife I don't think she would really take it too serious whether I would relocate to Okinawa and travel back and forth to mainland Japan has necessary.
As a matter of fact I think she would be quite happy about it.
And currently it doesn't cost that much to fly from naha to Fukuoka.
But I will definitely know by June of next year but my plans are.

First, you need some time to settle in after you move, and then you can look for a job. It took me two months after moving to Okinawa to understand the locals' traditions and rhythm of life. All this time, I earned by constantly looking for side jobs from home, and when I did manage to find something interesting for me, I worked double time because Okinawa is quite an expensive place to live. Only renting a small villa costs me $1,500 every month.

Wow! That's expensive.
