You don't even know where the road you are going is taking you. First focus on your Japanese language, college degree, and making an educational trip to Japan maybe even study abroad.
THEN you can start thinking about what you want to do, and more importantly, why. What you propose to do is a logistical and practical impossibility.
You can try to come and live in Japan, or you can seek a career in law enforcement. Choose one.
You don't get both. I sit here knowing full well from past experience that attempting to talk plain common facts to anyone delusional enough to imagine before ever having set foot in the country and without any of the necessary qualifications in hand that he is going to come here and live forever-n-ever-n-ever is the online equivalent of vigorously smashing my forehead repeatedly against a brick wall You're going to have to get a college degree.

And you're going to have to do it all before you turn THIRTY , which is the cut-off age for taking the exam to become a policeman here anyway.
Joined 29 Jan Messages 16 Reaction score 3. The two basic requirements necessary to obtain a work visa are 1, a 4 year or higher degree from an accredited university many "online universities" don't qualify , 2, three or more years experience in a "professional" field.
The number of professional fields is small, and even if being a geek were a profession, there are already millions of geeks here.
This three or more years experience must be consecutive, and verified with tax payments, pay stubs, or employment contracts. After residing in Japan for 5 consecutive years you are eligible to "apply" for Japanese citizenship.
Applying is one thing, having citizenship granted is another. Anyone remember the British woman Sayuri? And, lastly, why would you want to be a police officer?
Especially in Japan? Does a career in giving directions, picking up passed out salarymen, and taking reports for stolen umbrellas sound exciting to you?
Policemen like to pick on foreigners mainly because they have nothing better to do. Kosovo Northern Cyprus Taiwan. Japanese government ministries and agencies.

However, when just mach-bugyo was used, it generally indicated the Edo machi-bugyo that was the governmental post in the bakufu.
The bakufu machi-bugyo in the Tenryo cities the cities directly controlled by the bakufu other than Edo were called with the city name added to their heads, for example, Osaka machi-bugyo, and was generically called ongoku-bugyo literally, bugyo in remote provinces.
Summary of Machi-Bugyo Edo machi-bugyo, jisha-bugyo in charge of temples and shrines , and kanjo bugyo in charge of finance were generically called san three bugyo.
The members in this post, together with those in the other two bugyo posts were also members of Hyojosho the conference chamber , and were also concerned with affairs in the bakufu government.
The number of officers in this post was basically two. In the early Edo period, daimyo were appointed this post, and later hatamoto direct retainers of the bakufu.
A machi-bugyo officer went to the Edo castle in the morning, reporting to Roju members or holding meetings, and in the afternoon, made decisions and held trials, working until late night.
The work in the post was known to be hard, and the rate of death while in office was conspicuous. Machi-Bugyo-Sho office Until when the bakufu built machi-bugyo-sho offices, the person appointed a machi-bugyo officer used his residence as the office, executing his job by providing a court called shirasu: literally, a white sand area in the premise.
Its territory of control was limited to machikata the town area of Edo, and its authority did not cover samurai residences, shrines and temples that occupied more than a half of Edo.
However, the control of the town areas in front of the shrines and the temples was transferred to the machi-bugyo.
In , the Edo area was officially specified on a map with a red line called shu-biki , and at the same time, the area to be controlled by the machi-bugyo was shown with a black line called sumi-biki.
The area roughly corresponds to that of 15 wards of Tokyo, or the area of Tokyo City when the city system started. The term of machi-bugyo-sho came from the name of the governmental post, therefore, the office was actually called go-bansho a police station or o-yakusho a government office by townspeople.
The Monthly Rotation System As the term of kita-machi-bugyo -sho and minami-machi-bugyo -sho were often used, two Edo-machi-bugyo-sho offices were placed except for a certain period.
However, this did not mean that the control territory was divided between the two offices. The job was actually conducted in a monthly rotation system however, for each of the doshin officers who walked around watching town situations, jishinban [the town-watching places operated by townspeople themselves] to patrol were specified, and in that sense, a control territory existed naturally.
However, the jishinban places allotted to a doshin officer were scattered all over the Edo city area, and were not concentrated in an area, like the XX direction in the present police.
This monthly rotation system indicated that civil suits were accepted by the kita north office or by the minami south office alternatively, and ordinary jobs of the office except for the acceptance of civil suits including criminal suits whose examinations were underway were conducted naturally.
In addition, the bugyo-sho office being its off duty turn handled unfinished law suits that were accepted by the office in its on duty turn.
The term of kita and minami were used for identifying a location where the bugyo-sho office was placed, and were not used officiallyOfficially, each of them was called "machi-bugyo-sho office" uniformly.
Therefore, when a bugyo-sho office moved and the relationship between the bugyo-sho office locations changed consequently, the name of the bugyo-sho office that had not moved was also changed.
In when a residence of a bugyo officer moved to an area within the gate of Sukiya-bashi Bridge on the southernmost side from an area within the gate of Tokiwa-bashi Bridge, the new residence became to be called the minami-bugyo-sho office due to its location.
Then, the former minami-bugyo-sho office located in an area inside Kajiya-bashi Bridge became to be called the naka middle -bugyo-sho office, and the former naka-bugyo-sho office located in an area inside Gofuku-bashi Bridge became to be called the kita-bugyo-sho office.
Yoriki a governmental post in the Edo bakufu Yoriki was a typical governmental post in the Edo bakufu. In the Edo bakufu, yoriki were posted together with doshin officers under yoriki to assist their senior officers.
In particular, machi-kata yoriki under machi-bugyo the post in charge of townspeople's affairs or officers in the post was famous, assisted machi-bugyo, and played the functions of administration, judicature, and police.
In addition to ordinary yoriki who belonged to Bugyo-sho, there were also uchiyori who were private retainers of machi-bugyo.
It could be considered that a yoriki was the head of a police station. Yoriki was allowed to ride on a horse, and top-class yoriki officers earned a two hundred and several tens of rice crop, surpassing lower-class Hatamoto direct retainers of the bakufu.
For more information on being culturally aware, Auclair and Hickinbotham suggest visiting the UK government's advisory page with tips for fans traveling to the Rugby World Cup in Japan.
The more you know before you head out to enjoy a match — whether live at a stadium, in a fan zone with friends or gathered in a bar with strangers — the better time you will have and the less chance of having a bad experience with the police.
Most of it, though, is just common sense — like not urinating on private property or mooning people in public. The problem we've seen with foreigners and Japanese police is that many of these foreigners think they are above the law and act like they are back in their home countries, thinking nothing of acting aggressively and hostile towards Japanese police.
And then after the fact, crying about it on social media and using the 'foreigner card' to absolve themselves of any blame for their situation, and hoping the world readily sides with them against those xenophobic and 'racist' J-cops.
Been living in Japan for over 38 years. I've been stopped once. Produced my Resident card and on my why in 5 minutes. I didn't ask why and he didn't say why he stopped me.
Who cares? He was polite to me and I to him. People these days make trouble for themselves. Too many Google lawyers out there.
It was ironic that after all my years in Japan I was asked for identification by a police man a few days after I was granted Japanese citizenship.
We both had a chuckle. The rugby team at my school would strip themselves naked at the drop of a hat sometimes for charity, often not.
Good advice. If people behave themself, they will have no trouble in Japan, and can go back to there home countries safely.
DONT urinate outside, as is common in the foreign nations. You will be arrested and get a big fine. There are public bathrooms everywhere in Japan!
How many of these foreigners were unjustly stopped simply because their only crime was being a foreigner?
In which the foreign nations is public urination common? How about Australia? Big fine Down Under, I believe. I do have an acquaintance that was looked up for a hit and run leaving the scene and falsifying information to the police, guy was looked for 3 months.
To be fair, this is not unheard of in Japan as well, especially for members of the older generation Got stopped only once in 15 years, while driving, before a G7 or similar event near Yokohama.
It was a routine "mouse trap", they couldn't have profiled me as foreigner before deciding to pull me over. Asked for my license only, saw it is golden and let me go on my merry way in 20 seconds.
Didn't even want to see the gaijin card. They were extremely polite and explained the reason as routine before major political meetings.
No complaint whatsoever towards the police in Japan. If you keep common sense and don't behave strangely or aggressively, nothing should happen.
Sometime they behave very unprofessional else OK. As crime rate is very low in Japan they don't have much work, so sometime they try to find work for themselves behave weird.
Years ago, outside Shinkansen station Kobe I needed directions and I asked politely in perfect Japanese a policeman standing nearby, looking bored.
I was shocked - there was no reason for asking maybe he was bored and saw a chance to hassle a foreigner without English problems. Foreigners have been caught out just going down to the corner store.
For myself in 25 years I've never been stopped or has my card never been requested by the police. You are not required to carry your passport but you are required to carry your residents card if you have one.
Friday night drunk salary men? The word is toilets. If you get drunk I suggest you take a taxi to your hotel.
Drunks in public are targets and incidental bumps can lead to fights. Any fighting, even minor, and you will be spending some time at the police station.
Don't drive unless you are carrying the necessary correct license. Whole heap of trouble if you are stopped. I have a record for possession of stolen property.
It was about twenty years ago for an old bike I found on a gomi pile back when they had "put out your big gomi" days.
It must have been reported as stolen at some stage before being thrown away. Pretty much every NJ I knew back then had been stopped and their bikes checked, in the manner of racial profiling.
I didn't get fined, but they involved my girlfriend and she had to go down to the station a few days later. They also had a quick look inside my flat.
In another incident, I was waved into the police box in Roppongi just for crossing the road. They searched my bag, my pockets, and shoes and socks.
I was well into clubbing at the time and might have been dressed that way, I don't remember. I was actually there to meet a mate and go to Yellow, a club raided many times for drugs by police, but didn't tell the police that.
I just said I was going to a sports bar. If you do get stopped, do exactly as they say, and say as little as possible to avoid any further suspicion.
Assume that any interaction with the police may lead to your person or your home being searched for drugs. I would say stay clear of drugs, never carry, never import.
If they are that important to you better to go and live in another country. I wouldn't even frequent a club where drugs are used and raided by the police.
How to talk to police Step Don't even ask for directions. They may try fishing you for a crime and they may start hassling you with unnecessary questions.
Ruined his trip spending the whole time in a cell. Doesn't matter if they are in a uniform. That's just clothes. Photograph their ID. Put them in your shoes before you start grabbing your own ankles.
Remember, respect is earned and if you just obey them like a trained dog, pretty soon that is how you are viewed.
I don't recommend chewing them out but the article is over-cautious. I have chewed them out lots of times. Two things though I speak Japanese reasonable well and I never speak out of some victim complex mentality so I can tell my friends a "poor me" story.
I don't pull the gaijin card. Its just a simple matter of me seeing cops unfairly shaking people down or inciting fear or otherwise abusing their power.
Sure, they don't kill people here, but they are not immune to power tripping here either. They need to be called on it.
That said, I found some keys in a park and took them to the police station not so long ago. I regretted it instantly. They wanted FAR too many of my details just for turning in lost keys.
They took up over an hour of my time. It's a great country and very respected around the world. Visitors just need a little respect and common sense and a great time will be had by all.
I've lived in the "farther-flung Kyushu" for 30 years and have never had a problem. I once lived in Kyoto and missed the last train from Osaka, so I "borrowed" a bike that was clearly abandoned in an idiotic attempt to get home.
Some cops stopped me, and, seeing both the condition of the bike and mine, sent me on my way. At least one of the time, the police officer had nearly apologized for asking me my Id.
I understood it was to get a point for each request he made in the day. It was easier for him to ask a gaijin than a poor Japanese for no reason in the middle of an airport.
In fact, if you do a thing even unlawful but like a Japanese in same age bracket and same circonstances, you will get a free pass too.
Outside of that timesoace, you'll be a target. Well, that's effectively saying don't take any interest in music, because drug use and music have a long history together, back to at least the early s.
Music is one of the greatest hobbies you can have. It has enriched my life more than anything else. Some of my most vivid memories are of experiencing it in a crowd at concerts and in clubs.
No, it is not common inforeign countries. It is, however, common for middle-aged Jaoanese men to relieve themselves outside.
This is technically correct in the sense that asking is not illegal, but the police are under no obligation to the person being stopped to explain the underlying suspicion that led them to carry out the stop.
I was polite in both cases, as were the cops, and there were no problems at all. I think common sense would prevail. I stopped A police car to ask directions and was told to get in and the two officers dropped me off at my destination.
Common sense would be to put your resident card into a holder around your neck or in a case on your phone. Don't expect common sense from the cops.
I'm from the 60's so I know about that. But actually the real pleasure in music is listening and dancing. Not all music venues are known for drug taking but the ones which are frequently raided by the cops.
