I, in fact applied to this program last year but was not accepted (they
only accept about 30-40% of the applicants). The program lasts for 1
year, and they pay about $30,000 after taxes--enough to live in Tokyo,
which is where I wanted to reside. I'm applying again next year, now
that I finally have some teaching experience. Worth checking out,
people, even if you are competing against me. ;-)

And yes, I believe 30 is the age limit (they want recent grads).
