Job before or on arrival? (Tokyo)

Hi. Thinking of moving back to Japan (I used to live there like 13 years ago). Tokyo might be an option.

I can get a spouse visa so don't need to worry about sponsorship. I am wondering people's opinions about whether I should apply for and secure a job before I arrive or just arrive and find something interesting which might not be advertised externally?

Of course money is always a factor - I can't afford to hang around forever looking. So, how quick do you guys think I can find work? My Japanese is rusty but my experience is extensive in numerous areas including teaching, tourism and management.
