    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.

What's your recommendation for the best (cheap) restaurant in Osaka?

I have family visiting Osaka and I'm in charge of choosing the eating establishments... I'm not necessarily looking for Osaka-specialty foods (kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc.) Just some typical Japanese shokudo-style restaurants that really stand out in your mind. Also, I don't eat red meat so no tonkatsu / yakiniku / etc. please! And preferably near the city center (Osaka/Umeda station or Namba)! Thank you :)

Eating Clean

Are there any dedicated plant-based eatery in and around the Fuchu/Chofu area? Not an establishment that 'also serves' but one that is exclusively plant-based. Found a lovely one in Hachioji but too far away for regular patronage.
