Major Highlights of Teaching English in The Tokyo & Yokohama Area
Interac Kanto South is centrally located in Yokohama, the largest city in Kanagawa Prefecture. Just out of the Tokyo metropolis, Kanagawa is a metropolitan prefecture. Everything is only minutes away from the city centre by train, making it the perfect place to start your teaching career in Japan.
Kanto South is one of the safest areas in Japan and is very accessible for getting a real taste of living in Japan whilst teaching in Tokyo. The Yokohama metropolitan area caters to people from all walks of life and backgrounds, including a wide range of people from expat backgrounds to commercial spaces mainly inhabited by locals. Teaching in Japan gives you the opportunity to explore all areas of the district without limits.
Facilities within Yokohama city make it desirable for ALTs teaching English in Japan, including high calibre medical institutions, great transport links and educational institutions such as public schools and international schools.
Leisure activities are widely available whilst teaching in Tokyo, with lots of events happening in the Central Tokyo area. Musical events, Japanese school festivals, cherry blossoms, temples & shrines are just a sample of the activities happening around the Tokyo & Yokohama area of Japan. Like any city, certain areas, such as the train station, can be busy at peak times. However, finding space is easy and lots of places offer a more relaxing feel whilst teaching in Japan.
