Is it very difficult to goback to Japan?

I went to Japan 2yrs ago as a laundry trainee. Even though we didn't have salary but we had allowance of 70000yen every month plus OT. 10000yen is equivalent to 5000p, we got 35000p/mo. Were free accommodation that's why we just only think of our food budget. Every month we just only get 30000yen for our monthly budget an the rest should be deposit in bank so that if our contract is ended we have our money to bring back to Philippines to start a business. Japan was a very well-developed and disciplined country. Their environment, the weather, foods and especially people that I met there was very kind people. Before I went back here many filipinos there advice me not to go back and keep on hiding there, find another work. Because many companies there accept TNT people. But for me I must go back my country to have my certificate and after that look for another job in other country much better than Japan. But until now im still searching for it. I'm trying to apply in the US countries but its very difficult the with Japan and the placement fees is very expensive. There are Arab countries that are hiring jobs but im afraid of them. Because of negative feed backs i've heard. Im looking for Japan job hiring but its only dancer, singer, and entertainer theyare looking for. Can you suggest or help me on what to do just to go back Japan? Thanks in advance.

If you are an I.T. professional, PhilNITS (or Philippine National I.T. Standards Foundation) is a good contact point for Japanese companies. Of course, you will have to pass the certification exams to be recognized. As a certified PhilNITS professional, you can go to Japan for AOTS- (or Association for Overseas Technical Scholarships) sponsored trainings. They usually last a month and you get an allowance, too. For non-I.T. professionals who are connected to manufacturing company esp. if working for a local Japanese company, AOTS is a good avenue for entering Japan. In any case, learning Nihongo (or Japanese language) and passing the JLPT (or Japanese Language Proficiency Test) makes the possibility for working in Japan more likely.
