Teach English in Japan
If you're interested in working in Japan, teaching english is most likely your best bet.
The pay is not great - many schools pay "by lesson" rather than putting the teacher on a salary - but English teaching jobs are available in all of Japan's 47 prefectures. It's possible to live virtually anywhere in Japan and teach English (most other jobs for foreign workers are located in Tokyo), and, by all reports, it's a great experience.
Teaching English in Japan is a great opportunity for those who are willing to accept the challenges of living and working in Japan, and who are prepared for the challenges of living in a different culture.
