Hi, Im going out to Vancouver for a while on a working holiday visa from UK. Does anyone know what my chances are of finding a job where I can use my Japanese (i am fluent) or whether there are any Japanese companies out there? Thanks a bunch if you know anything.

I don't know what your chances are, but in major tourist cities such as Vancouver and Calgary, there are Japanese companies that organise tours all over the place. Kintetsu is one of the biggest, based in Vancouver, and also have representatives in Calgary. JTB and JAL are a few other companies...

Try some of those

I don't know about Vancouver, but Banaff and Jasper have a huge Japanese tourist population and I'm pretty sure you could get on there as a guide.
