Can you recommend recruiters or specific programs for someone who would like to teach English in Japan, starting this fall?

This question falls along the lines of this recent question
about teaching English in South Korea. (There are several other AskMe questions about the experience of teaching English in Japan
, whether JET is legit
, and teaching in Japan vs. teaching in Korea
, but none of them quite fit what I'm looking for.)
I know about the JET program, but the application process is long—I am specifically interested in hearing about good programs or schools that would allow an American in his mid-twenties, with a B.A. and excellent (American) references, to start teaching English in Japan this coming fall. Because there are so many opportunities and resources for this kind of thing out there, I'd appreciate some help figuring out some of the very best options. Your own stories, as well as anything you've heard from others, are very much welcome.
Feel free to Memail me privately if you'd rather. Thanks for the help!
