Child Support Allowance
People raising children who are still in elementary school or younger are paid a child support allowance. The amount is 5,000 yen per month for first and second children, and 10,000 yen per month for third and subsequent children. You are not eligible to receive this payment, however, if you have not completed alien registration or if your income exceeds a specified amount. For more details, please contact your local municipal office.
