Residence Card Still Valid; Any Chance of Trouble on Re-Entering Japan?

I've gotten half-ish answers looking around at other threads like:

https://www.reddit.com/r/japanlife/comments/6oeqe7/has_anyone_moved_out_of_their_ward_tokyo_when/

And I think I should be fine but I just wanted to double check to see if anyone has been in the same position.

My residence card and visa are valid until January 2018, and I left Japan last September after notifying my ward office I was leaving and sorting all that stuff out etc.

When I left at the airport, I ticked the re-entry option (as was advised by one of the guys working there, he basically told me "Why not? Just in case.")

I'm flying into Japan next month, and I wanted to make sure I would have no problem getting in on my existing visa. I understand that my status may be revoked seeing as I haven't had work in Japan for the last year, but would that mean that I can just get in on a tourist visa? (I'm from the UK if that makes any difference.)

Thanks!
