    if you are paying for pension during your stay in Japan,
    and you are leaving Japan permanently,
    you can apply for pension refund. The refund is called "Lump Sum withdrawal Payment". https://www.nenkin.go.jp/internation...m/lumpsum.html

    If you are paying for minimum of 6 months pension, then you can apply for this refund.

    Before going back to your home country, make sure you notify the city hall that you are leaving permanently.
    Then after you leave Japan, you can apply for refund.

    Steps:
    1. Download the form in https://www.nenkin.go.jp/internation...m/lumpsum.html
    2. Fill up form in alphabet letters.
    3. Photocopy passport with stamp of departure date and photo page of passport
    4. Print copy of bank account that will be used to receive payment.
    5. Mail documents on steps 2,3,4 and pension book (blue book) to Japan Pension Office.
    6. Wait for at least 6 months, until you receive refund and letter from Japan Pension.

    After pension refund is received, next step is to apply for tax refund.

    In order to do this, you need to appoint a tax representative that is located in Japan. You can message me for this matter.
    To appoint tax representative, you need to fill up form to appoint tax representative.
    Then the documents you received from Japan Pension will also be required, so send it to your tax representative.
    You also need to provide your name, last address in Japan, birthday, katakana spelling in blue book to your tax representative.

    Your tax representative will have to fill up tax forms and apply for refund to the tax office covering your last address in Japan.
    The refund will go to your tax representative, and later your representative can send / remit the money back to you.

    A tax representative can be any person or company.

    So far, I have done 4 refunds for my friends.
