I suppose that it would be relatively easy to find a job in the wind/solar/alternative energy industry in Japan, considering it's one of the countries that is almost completely dependent on imported gas and oil? I mean, as far as I know precisely because of this dependence that they pushed the solar energy technology development as far as they have. But it's one of the most expensive countries also... How much can one save while living there?
Yes! "The Endless Summer"! Thanks for the correction
If I stay in Japan for a winter, it will be to snowboard.. so any work would be at a ski resort like driving snow cat or teaching snowboarding. Both I have done in the past. One of the reasons I quit my engineering job is I never had enough time to ride.
