I found on a web site that there are openings to teach English in Japan.

The online form for signing up and submitting your resume (CV) asked what sort of Visa I have. Clearly it seems that they assume I have already gotten my visa. I do not have any idea how to get a visa or which one to get, but the list, I recall, included the optioin for a teachers visa or an employment visa.

Has anyone had any experience with this? Do I get a visa at the nearest Japanese consolote or embassy?

In my experience, you need an address and an employer to get a work visa. Perhaps the website assumes you are already in the country (on a student or tourism visa) and intend to change it to a work visa? Over here, you would get it at your nearest Japanese consulate and they would attach it to your passport.

Read the FAQs.

You need an employer/job to get a work visa. There are tons of web sites like that offering teaching jobs here. The market is terribly flooded right now, so beware.

If you're in Japan, you apply for a visa together with your employer at immigration.
If you get hired overseas, you apply for a visa together with your employer at the Japanese consulate/embassy.
