I lived there for six years. Actually I just moved back to Canada in August. During that time I mainly lived in Saitama (just outside of Tokyo). I worked at various English conversation schools in Tokyo and Saitama and in my last 4 years I work as teacher in Elementary and Junior High schools in Saitama. I didnt make a lot of money there but enough to get by and enjoy myself.
I never really had any problems with the language barrier because I found most of the daily things I did English was involved. The only time it was a pain was when I had to get an apartment for myself. For that I needed my Japanese friends to help me.
I really recommend going there. Its an amazing place to visit. I will probably will go back after I finish my masters
This is not uncommon here in Japan. It's basically illegal to fire people here so, companies break you down until you quit.
It's horrible but it happens all the time.
As a resident in Japan, this is damn annoying. I just hope the government doesnt draw this out, like they always do.
