I wonder if some kind of visa is still required?  Even if it's unpaid,
presumably before remote work kicked in, you'd have to at least enter
Japan on a tourist (can you?) or maybe cultural activities visa.  If
it's not required, then it's both good and bad...good in that Matteo
will have no problems; but bad in that the number of potential
applicants would now skyrocket.

I guess there are some things about remote work that people haven't
yet worked out...
