Keep in mind that Japan is expensive and highly competitive, too. Their cultural is subtle which, if you are young, can be jarring. Also, learning Japanese would be advisable. Japanese urban settings can be dense, too; it is about the size of Montana with 130 million people.

I would recommend moving to another part of the U.S. that is not super-populated, furthering your credentials and perhaps travel a bit before taking such a giant step. I visited Montreal/Quebec City/Toronto for three months in summer with my father when I was 15 and found it enthralling.

Japan will only see half of that population in 2060 if they don't make it easier for immigrants to live over there.

To the OP. Go to Montreal for a long weekend. It's nothing like the USA in any respect at all. I have always found the people there extremely friendly and the culture very interesting.
Immigration et Communautés Culturelles Québec - Preliminary Immigration Evaluation
It's not so easy to move to Montreal from the US.
It's not likely that an individual will be accepted who:
Needs a job
Doesn't have 4 yr degree
Doesn't speak French

I know the OP said he didn't have a 4 yr degree. I'm making an assumption saying he is not financially independent and that he does not speak French.
At any rate, the PEI link will give an individual a pretty good idea if it's viable to consider.
Bonne chance!

Been there for many years.
You're lucky you have no family and kids - so you can just drop it all and show the bird.
My fear though is that the world is changing ALL OVER and that there is no place left to run to.

I don't know where you find all these troublesome people. I never encounter any troublesome people.
