What kind of engineer are you? There are worldwide shortages in certain areas so you can get in easily if you are fluent at Japanese with a good degree from a VERY GOOD university
The easiest way, however, would be to get sent over with a foreign company (usually American) - I wouldn't know where to begin with applying to Japanese companies as a foreigner
I would advise you try for initial experience to begin with to see how you cope - the hours are a LOT longer out here (12-14hr days, 6 days a week, are normal) and the pay is lower so don't assume it will be fun/easy all the time
