There is a “Skilled Labor” status of residence for foreigners working as chefs in Japan.
However, the status of residence of "Skilled Labor" does not allow you to run a store.
The status of residence for running a store is “Business Manager”.
However, a foreigner cannot work as a chef with a “Business Manager” status of residence.
Therefore, it is not possible to work as an owner-chef with a status of residence of "Skilled Labor" or "Business Manager".
In order for a foreigner to work as an owner-chef in Japan, it is necessary to have a status of residence for foreigners based on status or position with no work restrictions.
Specifically, "Permanent Resident", "Spouse or Child of Japanese National", "Spouse or Child of Permanent Resident" and "Long-Term Resident" are applicable.
