There are things that leave a lasting impression on me taking time off to relax. Japan employment opportunities are vibrant, but it really is a much more dynamic country than many Westerners realize. Living in Japan is so safe that one can walk down any street at any hour without fear. When you do this, prepare yourself for surprises at what you might discover.
Last weekend, my wife Yoko and I went for a drive near The Sea of Japan, a very green, sub-tropical region with warm water and good beaches. Visitors are starting to make the trip along this impressive coast, some with an idea to settle down at some point. Again, safety is one of the key advantages, but in rural areas the employment opportunities might be less than ideal.
The Unexpected Surprise
While driving along a lush green valley, we saw a sign in English noting the area to be a protection site for rare birds including at least one species long thought to be extint. There is a friendly invitation to visit, donate money or volunteer. Just five years ago, such a thing would have been extremely unlikely, perhaps even odd by local impression. Now one only needs to ask about Japan employment opportunities. What a gorgeous setting it was!
With several cultural and biological UNESCO sites in the area, it isn’t surprising people are coming. The need for locals to communicate with the outside is growing rapidly and English is no longer an option. Thanks in part to developments like this, teaching English in Japan with my franchise English school is increasingly rewarding. I just love my job. Most of the time, it doesn’t feel like work at all.
Japan employment opportunities are continuously developing. When it’s time for a worthwhile new challenge, moving to a new country is one of the best things you can do.
