id say its a bad idea with how well our $ is at the moment.. earn more doing a job ur qualified for. then take a proper holiday and relax 24/7.. if our dollar was shit i'd say its a good idea cause your earning similar/more than at home for a basic job etc.

It's a great idea!!!

I did a year and a half working holiday in Tokyo from july 09 to jan 2011 and it was f**king awesome!

I always wanted to experience day to day life in another country. I was thinking of spain until I went to Japan for a holiday in 08, and I fell in love with the place.

I went there without a job or place and found my way ok... I was pretty silly actually because I got there with my savings and partied my money away very quickly. Then I found a job, but the problem was that I would get paid on the 25th for the previous month so it was nearly 2 months before i saw my first paycheck!

my advice would be to get a job before you go crazy spending or partying.

There are times that are tough, and times where you'll experience some amazing things!

I can honestly say it was one of the best experiences of my life!

I was teaching English there, and my clients ranged from business men, fashion designers to big name Japanese actresses, oh and I even taught the guy who sings the dragon ball z theme song!

 

Like a wise man once said

"DO IT!"
