Just in case it’s not clear already, we’re not an employment or recruitment agency, so please don’t book with us if that’s what you’re looking for. We sell and organise amazing international travel experiences for the purpose of cultural exchange & education. If a trip has a paid work option, this is not mandatory to do and is there as a means to fund your travels only, and no fee is charged by us for this component. All payments you make are for travel and local support services. If you’re still confused, please get in touch.

Trip details

Our Teach in Japan trip is designed to get you travelling, living and teaching English overseas as smoothly as possible. We’re here to help you from the very beginning, offering step-by-step guidance as you embark on a path to work and travel as an English teacher abroad. We provide an internationally-recognised TESOL course, arrange local cultural experiences and provide you with the optional opportunity to work as a paid English teacher upon completion of your course. 

Arrive in Japan with the reassurance that you will be many steps ahead of every other traveller or teacher in search of international experience in Asia. Once you’ve completed your TESOL, you’re free to take it with you to many countries in the world and embark on exciting teaching projects abroad. Or you can choose to stay for longer in Japan and earn a local income with an optional teaching placement in various schools around the country. We’ll plan and organise all the surrounding logistics, our 24/7 emergency support team is always on standby, and our in-country partner will guide you throughout the entire journey and answer any questions that may arise.

Spend your time teaching in Japan, immersing yourself in the culture and surroundings, exploring the breathtaking landscapes and jetting off to neighbouring countries and leave the logistical stuff to us. We’re here to save you time, money, stress and even the risk of returning home early! Embrace a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel, live and teach in Japan and start making magic happen in the classroom of your dreams.

Trip itinerary

The beauty of this trip is that you have the freedom to create your own adventure. But, for a rough idea, this is how most travellers spend their first few days: 

Week 1+

Upon completion of your online TESOL course, and should you wish to also teach in Japan, you’ll be presented with a local teaching contract before you’ve even left home. Once you’ve touched down at the closest airport to your placement/training location in Japan, a transfer will be waiting to take you straight to your accommodation. Some schools will require you to do 2 weeks of training in a central location before heading off to your placement, in which case you’ll also be provided with shared, most likely en suite accommodation with 2-3 other new teachers. After that you’ll be provided with an exact guide of the best way to utilise Japan’s famous public transport system to get to your school!

Settle into your permanent Japanese accommodation, meet your new colleagues and dive into the culture and wonder of your new home. Your school is going to assist you with setting up your bank account and provide you with tax assistance. They’ll also give you assistance in finding the best possible local sim for you! 

You’ll get to experience some of the cultural orientation activities planned in Nagoya with other teachers from the intake. You may already feel like you know some of the people there if you’ve been active on the private Facebook group and at teacher meetups. So this will be a great opportunity to get some face time, while exploring some incredible Japanese sights. You’ll get to experience two of the following activities including; a Japanese cooking class, walking tour of Nagoya, a visit to a historical Japanese castle and a trip to Tokugawa Art Museum. These events happen twice per year and usually coincide with the most popular contract start dates, so you can jump onto the one closest to your arrival.

Trip location

You could find yourself teaching in various locations from big cities to small towns dotted all over Japan.
