    Teaching is probably the most common, but "other" jobs are on the increase. When I first came to Japan, most of my fellow Irish out here weren't teachers, but engineers. These days there are more teachers, but still a few engineers. There are special visas for the entertainment industry, more and more medical staff are being employed from overseas and of course finance is another big one. I worked in HR and recruitment previously and the number of foreigners in that sector has increased in the last 15 years. I mainly come across people in Translating and international relations these days.

    Yeah, there are many jobs for foreigners like us. A lot of foreigners work in finance and IT sector, if you can communicate in Japanese then you have no problem finding jobs.

    Go to Gaijinpot.com they have tons of job postings that aren't just for teaching. However you have to already be living in Japan for some of them.

    Online marketing or develop an MLM business. Several good choices in this area if one has the fortitude and the guts to be told to get lost 100 times before he or she finds a gem he can work with.

    Thee are a lot of jobs available if you can communicate at business level in Japanese. If Japanese is an issue, try finance, IT, and ecommerce positions.

    Writing blogs can also give you some money. My wife writes for several English sites.

    Teaching English is the best for native speakers. Plus, you can try your luck writing travel articles for different sites. They give you some money. But if you are ready to take any jobs " Hello Jobs" can be useful in connecting you to one.

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.

Hot water into cold water

I heard or read somewhere that pouring hot water into cold water was not a good thing to do. (I like my water luke warm sometimes) Something to do with religion or dead association with dead people (and Japan does not like that) Have you heard of this? Any sources I could see so I don’t mess up in a critical moment?

Annoying morning futon slapping noise. What time is OK?

There's a middle-aged guy, living in one of the apartments in the building across the street from me, who hangs out his futon between 7 - 8 am and then bangs the sh@*t out of them with one of those stupid plastic slapping devices. Honestly, I want to take it from him and slap him with it instead. Of course, I'll end up doing nothing of the sort, but I find this futon-slapping at that time so annoying and noisy and am astonished that he continues to do it despite his noise echoing down the whole street and him being the only person on the street to do so (at least at that sort of time). If he was in my building I might stick a note through his door or something, but I'm not sure about the protocol of doing that when the culprit is in a different building. I'm also wondering if the 7 - 8 am slot for futon-slapping is a perfectly acceptable one and actually it's me that needs the attitude adjustment. Thoughts?
