I spent a month in Japan last year.. it was a GREAT trip.. I actually had a thread in here asking for places to see/etc. There are soo many things to see.
If you are looking to actually live there, the JET programs seems like a good idea. The only thing is, you could get stuck in some small little town in the middle of nowhere. So, as long as you are open to that, I would say go for it! I would love to do that for a year, but unfortunately I can't just leave my job and do it. (I already left one job and lived in France for a few months)... I would highly suggest living somewhere else for a while. You come to appreciate what you have in Canada so much more and it is a great experience in general.
BTW, great that we have a TRAVEL forum now.. I love travelling whenever i can.
