I almost did. You can teach English if you have a college degree and get paid a little as well.

Still might depending on things

Just a warning to anybody wanting to LIVE IN and not just visit Japan; the business culture is murder.

If you work anything outside of being an English teacher, be prepared to work ridiculous hours and "fudge" your overtime numbers so that they don't actually have to pay you overtime.

Also, be prepared to be told that you have accruable vacation time, but you're never allowed to take any of it; or at the very least be ready for a scolding if you do take it.

Make sure you that if you plan to quit, you give at least three months notice (six would be better), and keep in mind that no one likes to hire a quitter.

I'm exaggerating a little, but this is literally the kind of thing I hear from my friends in the workforce all the time.

Otherwise, private life in Japan is pretty fantastic (once you get past setting up a place to live). It's the most convenient, clean, and safe existence I've ever known. I miss that part all the time.

yeah I wouldn't work in japan but I'd be open to something like retiring there. and really, the work culture's the only major problem I have with it.
