    Ive been in Japan for 6 months only and we called it training but it is actually working. Its a one way a company can save its labor-cost. You will be trained to speak, right, read Japanese (Nihonggo) because Japanese knows very little English.

    I have seen several Filipinos working there also as a professionals...working there is tough...not that tough but tougher than you expect...Japanese are known for their workaholics attitude.

    There are several cases of death due to overwork, and they called it "karoshi" 過労死. I was there having a business trip in a Toyota factory in Tokyo, for 2 months I've been working like an addict that needs to bring my work and drawings at home to continue working. And sad to say, you are working for free. They have this culture "sabis-zangyou" or service overtime. It means that you have to work to thank and please your company because they have given you a salary.

    Yes, they have a high salary when converted to Peso, minimum of 300k Yen a month, equals to 157K pesos. But your cost of living there is very expensive. You must rent a flat that have aircon and heater due to its climate. The cheapest food that you can eat that's enough to feed your hungry stomach is about 300~500 yen, around 150~250 pesos. There are cheap food also about 100yen but not enough to fill your stomach.

    I was offered to be send back again to Japan for 6 months to 1 year...my reply was straight and simple.."Thanks, but no thanks".

    I never regretted working in Japan or even a Japanese company. I gain and learned more than enough which is also useful. In Engineering design side, their designs were tough and too clever compared to other western-made design. In language though, I gain JLPT level 3 competency which enables me to communicate better with a Japanese (pero walay gamit kung walay hapon, ehehhehe). Nevertheless, to be contented with a small salary.
