This period is aimed at easing any anxieties people may have about taking jobs in regional areas.

I appreciate the effort, but I'm afraid I am more of an area-ish region person. The regional area life may work for some, and good luck to them.

I'd be a little mistrustful of a government enforced leave of absence from the current employer. If you go back after six months will you be considered for promotion in the same light again? I've heard their corporate structures are rigid and all about loyalty.

Leave your current employer to move somewhere else and live off government assistance for 6 months? No Honoruble Japanese man would consider it.
