Experience in the JET Programme


I'm considering applying for the JET Programme to teach english as a second language in Japan. I was posting on here to find out the experiences (such as, work conditions, how foreigners are generally treated, medical care, etc) of those who have participated in that program.  Also, I've heard that it's expensive to live in Japan, is it still possible to save around $1000 a month on an average teacher's salary (of course with someone having a reasonable budget). A lot of former teachers who worked in South Korea speak on how it's possible to save around $1000 while working there. Thanks.
