Looking for advice with finding dev work in Japan

Hi,

Currently in the process of getting approved for the working holiday visa and seriously aiming to get a job in Japan.

Currently in between jobs with about 7 years of dev experience mostly in PHP.

I have done some research in job resources, including this blog, but was wondering what resources are available once actually in the country? Such as recruiting agencies that have openings in development positions or specific places/events for networking? Or what opportunities there are for contract work?

There are lots of meet-ups and recruiting agencies that will work with you to find a job, as well as popular job search websites like Wantedly and LinkedIn.
