Im just after some very basic japan relating to japan. Ive always been interested in japan and with only 2years left of my Apprenticeship ive saved some money and should have atleast 30k+ in 2 years time.
So i was mainly after the basics on what jobs if any you could attain if you plan on going to japan for an extended period ie. 6months or more if your Japanese is poor. As in only can only understand Japanese at a level of Anime ( understanding what thier saying but not be able to write as of yet ) .
Or possibly any experiences from anyone whos holidayed / Stayed in japan relating cost of staying and such.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I only recommend you to investigate with the prizes, Japan is one of the most expensive countries. A friend of my went there a couple of months ago and she used 7,000 US Dollars.
Also, I heard the trip was A LOT cheaper if you Road Trip Hawaii > Japan. So talk to your travel agent about that.
Finally, good luck! Going to Japan at least once in my life is one of my goals xD
I haven't been to Japan never ever ever, though I may be able to help you because we did some kind of unit on it. Akihabara which is an area in Tokyo, is like the 'Otaku Area' because that's where the anime, manga and computer items are sold and stuff. Kyoto is like the historical city of Japan, it has lots of shrines and is quite beautiful during the night.
Hiroshima is yet another Japanese city to visit, obviously this is one of the cities where the atomic bomb was dropped, so it's quite historical for many people. In Hiroshima is also the peace park and some other historical buildings (Atomib Bomb Dome, etc). In Hiroshima is also the 'floating shrine', I forgot the name, but it's this big shrine that looks like it's floating during high tides.
Erm, I hope that helps you when it comes to cities. I'll try and ask my friend who has been in Japan for any transport. I am aware though of the bullet train. ;D As for prices, I can't do that at school, but when I get home I can take a look at prices. ^^
If you know anyone over there at all, it will save you alottttt of money by that i mean u can stay wit them ._. . Anyways, you should check out nagoya they got alot of orgasmic things there. And be sure to check out the red light districts and be sure to check out their porn shops

Thank you for advice .. i will let you know it .. ( i will planning to photo in summer ..
Yeah, I asked my friend, and she told me that bullet train is the main form of transport that they used (and also walking). I can go look for hotels in Japan. ^^ Also, it can get VERY hot during spring and summer, so yeah. xD
Bullet train is only for long distances, methinks. They're pretty expensive... or at least, maybe that's just 'cause I rode it from I-don't-remember-where to Kyuushuu. JR Trains are the more normal mode of transportation.
Tokyo is the most expensive city to live in. Good luck. 8D
Traveling/staying with friends?
No no, I mean like, in your flight, if you make one stop in Hawaii you will save a lot of money.
I went to Japan this year on a school trip and, quite frankly, I found the place to be absolutely spectacular.
Tokyo and Akihabara especially is definitely the place you want to go if you're into gizmos, gadgets and anime stuff. My friends and I somehow found ourselves in a ten-storey anime shop. That's ten floors of otaku goodness! Only problem was that the price of everything was quite...exorbitant. Therefore, I recommend you go to a BIC CAMERA (a chain of these massive electronical department stores), for electronics and anime. However, Akihabara is still a must-go.
You also want to be sure to ride the Shinkansen (sleek, super-fast train) at least once, it's amazing.
However, Japan also has many interesting historical places that it would be a shame to miss. For example, Kyoto, Japan's ancient capital: that's a place where you can find some of the most famous temples in Japan and it's just a generally pleasant place.
Also, I was surprised (and I'm sure you will be too) at the extremely cleanliness of the streets. You honestly can't find a single scrap of rubbish anywhere. That being said, there were also no public rubbish bins, which I thought was a bit odd.
My travel agent said .. i need to buy travel ticket rather than dailly ticket ..for Train (not bullet Train) i need to buy different ticket for bullet train
My family call me crazy about stuff ( my family like it anyway)
my brother is fan of Otaku but not similar to me.... hehe
My friend told me .. he went to Japan in last several month ago ... He is piss off because he can't afford some palce ...but he is happy to visit Historical ....
I hope it will enjoy trip for me ( maybe my brother) ...
If there was any one place outside the United States I would want to go, it'd be Japan. I find their culture to be unique and amazing (both historic and modern).
I went to Akihabara last summer. It was amazing.
I was also really lucky because I was actually on a transit stop using JAL international flight. So the airline covered my lodging for a night in a 5-star Nikko Hotel.
I spent a couple hours wandering around in Akihabara alone with only a map. I was lost, went into a soba and udon shop, and could only said "Watashiwa doko desu?" ^__^ The oba-san took out a pen and helped marked the place where I was. I had the most pleasing meal in Japan (udon, rice, chicken, egg) and headed back to the train station after a while.
Wonderful wonderful experience in Akihabara. There are tonnes of electronics around for all you geeks.
