I wonder if there are good opportunities in Japan for work in your subject area... all I know, from living here, is that there is great interest in using electromagnetic wave detection to sense and predict ground movements and earthquakes.

There may also be new interest in this subject in New Zealand, after some recent and large, unexpected and unusual earthquakes (Kaikoura and Christchurch).
