You need to check with your embassy.

If you are thinking of teaching English conversation at private conversation schools in japan, I'm afraid it will be extremely difficult, because those companies want native English speakers. Also with NOVA, one of the major English school chains in Japan, going through a major financial problem, there are many English teachers looking for jobs in Japan currently.

Please note that you cannot just apply for a working visa for Japan BEFORE finding an employer - you have to have an employer first, and the employer in Japan needs to sponsor you for the visa.

Another thing to note is that English "literature" and English "language teaching" are two different things; you might want to inquire with colleges/universities if literature is your major.
