    Dear Ms. Jan Parrish,

    I came from Linkedin and I need the job in Tokyo area as I am downsizing from the company, but I have to transfer into the hearquarter in Sendai(Tohoku). I would like to come back as soon as possible to my family.
    How can I find the regular job and the home business ?

    Akinori, I can help you get to the US on a work visa, but I don't place jobs in Tokyo. Thanks for thinking of me.
