1.Why is Japan the preferred choice for teaching English in Asia?

Why do so many teachers come to Japan to first teach, OR, after teaching in South Korea, China, or elsewhere? Is it because of its historical roots with its iconic images of the samurai, geisha, tea ceremony, Zen, and ninjas? Or, are you more attracted to its modern cultural imports of anime, cosplay, and J-pop? In addition, some of the more practical reasons why so many people wish to teach and live in Japan are:

  • It is a developed nation providing modern standards of living.
  • It has a public transportation system that is the envy of the world.
  • It also provides national health care which covers 70% of medical and dental.
  • It is one of the safest countries in the world with a law-abiding, non-discriminatory & friendly populace.
