Work hard and get a scholarship while in school… Or work hard and get a sought-after qualification and apply to a Japanese company. The other options include getting lucky or hooking up with a Japanese person :P You can ask around at your local consulate, sorry I can’t be of more use with this, I think it’s somewhat easier to get a visa now than it used to be but it all comes down to you in the end.
I came here to study, I think that might be easier, at least for me it was because I can’t imagine getting a job here with what I am doing :P Speaking Japanese is certainly not enough to come here (and not even required) but it’s a huge, huge plus combined with something.
