I've not applied, but I'm considering applying to Interac. I've heard they don't pay the airfare and pay less in general though, so I'll have to calculate if I can afford it.
For other programmes, I'm not too sure about Japan but if you're interested you can also apply for similar programmes in other countries. There are also recruiters for jobs outside of programmes. I've heard http://www.footprintsrecruiting.com/
are fairly good from friends using them, but you might want to 'shop around' if you go that route since most the information they have up on their website is for South Korea, even if they claim to do Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam and other countries..
