If you're a native english speaker, then it's very easy to get a job. The company and the job you may not like, but it's a job. Often your compant will set you up with an apartment... if not, you can find accomodation through these websites...

I've lived in Japan for over a year teaching english, and it's a great experience. You can get great pay, ok holidays and you can possibly travel around a lot of Japan while you're here. Any more questions, just ask! Hope I could help!

Dont forget about the visa siutaion though. You can visit as a tourist for 3 months i believe, there is also a working holiday visa for people from the UK for sure, and poss Aus and NZ. If you want a work permit, you will have to get one through work, so having a job before you come out will save u a lot of hassle. If you decide to teach english, make sure u choose ur company carefully. My holidays here arent great, and i have very little time to travel the country properly. If you want a job in a field other than teaching english, i would recommend trying tor learn some japanese before you come out here, will make your life a lot easier and it is something id wish id done before i left home.

Just my views of course.
