What jobs are available to foreigners in Japan?

Besides the normal English teaching job, what else is available to us foreigners? I know that companies prefer natives over foreigners, so what other options do we have? Daniel O, that was rude and unnecessary. I know that that happens there, and it's not that I approve of it, but that was uncalled for. It doesn't answer my question, so, why would you even answer? You're just spiteful. Good job.
