Hi. Just have a quick question for everyone. If I were to find work in Japan ans a eikaiwa teacher, would I be able to bring my wife with me and have her legally allowed to stay or would she need to find work herself in order to live in Japan?

Finding work may be tricky, however, as she is native Filipino and I know that Japan typically only hires Native English speakers. She has been a certified teacher and we have both been teaching EFL in Thailand and seriously want the hell out of here. She would prefer to be able to work, but would be willing to go unemployed as long as she can stay with me. So, barring finding work, would she be allowed to?

No problem. She could get a dependent visa.
Lots of teachers are Filipinas here.
They are active in ETJ and even have their own groups, like in Kanagawa and Saitama.

They get less money though, maybe something like 175,000 for ALT work.

That is still almost double she makes in Thailand and better than nothing at all, especially in a shared apartment. That is encouraging, thanks.
