For an international student to work at a part-time job is required to obtain "permission to engage in an activity outside the scope permitted at the Immigration Bureau in advance.
If you have the permit, as long as it does not negatively impact your academic achievements, you will be allowed to work a part-time job to supplement your income for the cost of living. A permit is not necessary for theTeaching Assistant (TA) job.
However, you are forbidden from receiving a job in the adult entertainment business. You will have to apply for this kind of permit on your own at the Immigration Bureau.
Once you have obtained the "permit for activity other than that permitted under the status of residence previously granted," bring it to the Student Services Section (Katsushika, Kagurazaka, Noda).
When renewing your period of stay, you can also apply for the "permission to engage in activity outside scope permitted" permit at the same time.
Once you have obtained the permit, it is valid until its expiration date, even if you switch to another part-time job.
