What kind of job can you get on a working holiday?

So far, my experience of a working holiday has been really different to being a tourist here. It feels like even though you are on a working holiday visa, you are really expected to travel more than work and have more money saved in order to do so.

Both for another experience of going clubbing in Tokyo and also to see Dean.
