@rlasser --

How's your Japanese?  Without the language, it'll be pretty hard to
get a position at Japanese firms in Japan, but the foreign firms in
Japan will be easier to get into.  I've lived and worked in Japan for
close on five years, and have seen and heard a good bit, working both
at Japanese and foreign companies.

School-wise, two places with good international business programs and
excellent connection possibilities (networking while at the school)
are the Monterey Institute of International Studies
( and Thunderbird ( 
There are probably others out there too, these are just the two that I
know a little about.

How about New York University's MBA program? Japanese companies look
for famous names. Also, many Japanese companies send their employees
there.  Expensive, but worth it.
