Thank you in advance for any information.
As of right now, this is a commuting contract only. There is one guy in the process of trying a residency option but I do not know the specifics or even if it will ultimately be allowed. I highly doubt you would get to keep the allowance for housing and you also will have to pay Japanese income tax. You do have to commute in on days off.
