    If you are using Softbank network, then Softbank Air will be your best choice because you can get a discount for your phone bill and it is faster than ADSL. http://www.softbank.jp/ybb/special/air/ If you are using other providers WiMax is your best choice. http://www.uqwimax.jp/signup/trywimax/ Try it for 15 days and make sure your area is covered by WiMax. Both of the services I mention above use LTE, it is faster then ADSL and no need for installation.

Any good tips for a Shimane visit?

I'm getting one of my New Year's Resolutions ticked off, and have a short trip planned to Shimane in late May. I'm going to visit Matsue, Izumo and Yasugi. Apart from the main to-do's there, does anyone have any experience with some off the beaten path spots? Cute cafes, interesting museums, anywhere you'd like to share?

Certificate of Eligibility

Hi there. So! The embassy of Japan has told me that if I want to have a long term visa I need (mandatory) a job and a certificate of eligibility and there's no way around this. The amount for working holidays is nearly 10 000 € and it's a lot. Any suggestions on how I can get a good job and a good presentation to have a job in Japan. I wanted to be a teacher.
