Default Limits of part-time work for dependants

Hello again,
Just thought I would create a new thread for my research on the limits of part-time work while in Japan for those on a dependant visa.
So far, it looks like full-time work in Japan in ESL is actually less hours than what a part-time worker could work. Potentially I could apply for full-time teaching positions and it would still be fewer hours than the upper limit. This is according to this document(, right on the first page. Japan, part-time work, maximum of 35 hours. It would seem that if someone were to hire someone like me on what they consider full-time work as an ESL teacher, it would still fall under part-time hours and thus be legal on all fronts. I'm gonna keep digging as it seems to good to be true.

(to be continued)
