looking at going to JP next summer but wish to save money while there!

Hello there my name is Sarah, I am a 22 year old college student from the midwest (Missouri). And I have always wanted to travel to Japan for the longest time, and now that I have decided that I want to become an english teacher in Japan and eventually move there. I know that I have a really good excuse to go and travel there.
But the thing is I only want to go for about a week and I don't want to spend a huge amount of money going so I was wondering if I could get some advise from people that have already been there. If I could I would like to visit Tokyo and Osaka but I am thinking of staying in a Japanese inn since that would be farr cheaper then staying in the city at a western style hotel. I want to do a lot of things but I figure I can wait on a few because I actually have some friends that live in Japan and I am working with a good girl friend of mine in the states to see if I can stay for a few months with some of her friends maybe in 2008 and then after that I am hoping that I can get my bachlor's degree and I can find an english teaching program that will have me living in a small apartment after that.
But like I said if you guys have any money saving advise that would be amazingly helpful. And if you have any suggestions of anywhere what so ever to go and visit please tell me. This will be my first visit to Japan and I need all the advist I can get thanks.
