If you will check mine.

I'm not a JET but applying currently so can give some advice while also getting some for my own :)

Umm, not sure how helpful we will be to one another, seeing as we both may be on the wrong track lol!

I dunno how SOP checking is country specific, not sure how many people will be able to help in this case!

Well grammar stuff isn't THAT different but from what I remember the US and UK SOP requirements are quite different. You guys got nearly double the space to write and were asked a bunch of specific questions about engaging students. We were told... 2 pages. Why Japan. Why JET. Why you. Go.

2 pages with size 8 font is about 3000 words -,-

Are you taking into account that it has to be double-spaced though? And that the font size has to be 12?

Well that is shit. Have you emailed them, asking if they've forgot to include the 800-1000 word count in the instructions?
