In demand software areas in Japan


#1

What areas are the majority of software engineer/developer positions concentrated in? It seems when I look for jobs on career forums such as Daijob.com and Careercross in Japan most of the positions are either web development or mobile development with a few other positions such as embedded systems and Java/C++ scattered in between. Am I getting an accurate sense of the demand in software in Japan, namely that its highly concentrated in web/mobile?

I think companies hiring Web/Mobile developers tend to be most open to hiring non-Japanese, hence what you saw at the job sites.
