It’s the easiest way to start your career in Japan!
[The company] helped me finding an internship, where I was constantly challenged with new task every day. After my six weeks internship I grasped a deeper understanding of the importance of intercultural communication in a global work context. Further I experienced what it means working in a highly exotic country like Japan and also the distinctive features of the Japanese business manners I faced on a daily basis

Some fields/jobs such as finance require prior experience
Companies with specialized interest jobs (such as finance) often require that you have prior experience in that field, or at least that you have studied it at university.
[The company] provided support for finding my internship placement, proofreading my documents such as CV, cover letter and doing mock interviews so I was prepared for not only my internship but future careers. They also provided support with finding my housing, getting wifi and phone and constant support answering my questions about doing an internship in Japan.

This means the company will have the same expectations of you as they have of their employees. Being late, taking days off without warning, dressing inappropriately and other behaviors that would be unacceptable for Japanese staff will be unacceptable for you too. Japanese companies can be stricter towards staff than those in other countries, so applicants must be motivated and stable.
