When you think of Tokyo, modern skyscrapers, large billboards, compact rooms, and lots of people come to mind. Contrary to popular perception, Tokyo offers the best greenery and scenery at its outskirts, with astonishing temples and parks looking over Mount Fuji.
Tokyo’s fast-paced culture is highlighted by its unique shopping experience, cozy dinning, and the many interesting theme parks it has at its disposal. From the diverse range of festivals it offers to the performing arts, you name it and Tokyo has it.
This great metropolis also offers a varied array of sports and has hosted some of the biggest events in the world, including the 1964 Olympics and the 2002 soccer World Cup.
A university degree and a TESOL certificate of at least 120 hours are necessary for landing a decent entry-level teaching job in Tokyo. ESL schools hire all-year round for 12- month periods. Private conversational lessons for the business community are also very popular, as Tokyo is home to some of the biggest corporations in the world.
