OT in Japan

Hi Everyone!
I'm wondering if there is anyone currently working in Japan as an OT?
I'm hoping to move to Tokyo this year as my partner started working there but don't speak Japanese.
I appreciate this means I won't be able to get my OT license but I'm wondering if there are other work opportunities related to the field.
Thank you so much for any input!

Re: OT in Japan

I'm an occupationale therapist in Japan. I suppose if you don't speak Japanese it would be difficult to find a job related as medical or welfare field.
If i could find any good information i will let you know. Hope you are well then enjoy your life in Japan.
