Hi everyone! I’m a freelance writer from sunny Scotland with a love of history, religion, literature, and techno. It’s been around 7 years since my first trip to Japan and life hasn’t been the same.
If TV and movies are to be believed, then Japan is a country filled with robots mechs, talking toilets, and futuristic transportation. Perhaps more than any other country in the world, it has a reputation as a technological wonderland. But is this image of advancement justified?
When it comes to wildlife, some Japanese people just don’t know how good they’ve got it! In Kyoto, I once saw a family of Japanese macaques making their way through the woods. To me, this was an amazing experience. To my Japanese friend, it was about as noteworthy as seeing a flock of pigeons.
A whole industry and culture of English education have sprung up over the past few decades. Within it, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to land your first Japanese teaching job. Let’s take a look at what kinds of jobs are available, and what you need to do to get one.
