Consider Japan

Wake up in the Land of the Rising Sun and immerse yourself in the futuristic cities, tranquil countryside, and vibrant culture that puts Japan at the top of everyone’s dream holiday list. Walk the bubbly alleys of Tokyo’s Harajuku district or take a step back and explore the historic temples of Kyoto. The balance between modern metropolis and traditional charm is what makes Japan one of the most liveable countries. Renowned for ushering in a new world of technology while rewriting the lunch menu across the globe, this animated nation has evolved into a meticulously precise, quirky, and colourful country.

Japan is a long archipelago and the climate varies depending on the region. Hokkaido is the northernmost island of Japan with long winters and plenty of snowfall, making it somewhat of a snow sports paradise. At the southern end of Japan, Okinawa prefecture savours its long summers with temperatures hovering around 32 degrees. Japan is perhaps most famous, however, for it’s cherry blossom season in spring when the nation is painted with pink petals.

What You Need

Our schools prefer that you only speak English in class, so you don’t need to learn Japanese before you depart. While some schools may like it if you have previous teaching experience, it is not mandatory. Most of the teaching jobs require a bachelor’s degree in any subject, but there are limited schools who do accept native speakers without a degree. TTI can help you through an easy application process to obtain the Visa, TEFL or TESOL certificate. Once the paperwork is complete, we will help to place you in a school in one of your preferred cities.
