Hi, hi

I am applying for a working holiday visa to Japan. On the visa form I am required to plan each month - which is hard because I hardly plan anything that far ahead... I usually end up stumbling on jobs. So just for my application I need a little help with known English theme bars (kitch yes) or hostels with work exchange programs - Kyoto would be MOST helpful.

Does anyone have any places off the top of their heads?

Sorry I ramble.

You don't need specific names for places to work. Teaching English will suffice. The focus should be more on holiday and less on work as they want to see that you are not there solely to work. Just get a guidebook,make a plan. You don't have to stick to it, it is just a formality(you will discover lots of this when you get to Japan).

Thanks, for some reason my Japanese visa has me spooked... though I have never had trouble with working visas before.
