The difference between Japanese and Western working cultures summed up in one photo

Two office skyscrapers look out over Shibuya together, but inside they’re worlds apart. A lot has been written about Japanese working culture, where it’s standard practice to put in a lot of unpaid overtime, use your paid holidays on sick days, and only head off home after your boss has left the office. This focus on prioritising group […]

School for Sale in Takatsuki, Osaka

If you’re looking to the following year and thinking that it’s about time you started a school, then take a look at this school offer.

There are currently 17 students already enrolled at the school, which is a BIG deal since starting a new school would leave you with a big hole in your wallet (or your investor’s wallet) and still no cashflow. Starting with 17 students means positive cashflow, and that number can be boosted significantly with good marketing and great lessons that parents want to share with their friends.

Details

The school building is a 2-story house and you can live downstairs and have your classes in the rooms upstairs. It’s the perfect work from home opportunity!

If it’s a successful school, then why is it being sold, you might ask. The owner is heading back to the US for family reasons but wants to leave the students in good hands.

The rent is at 160,000 yen ( with the teacher paying half of the rent and 70% of the utilities). It is a franchise school under Modern English, which means that you won’t have to make schedules, contact potential students or produce marketing materials for the school yourself. Also, you can choose to hire a teacher or you can teach the classes yourself. Lastly, since the Franchise fee has already been paid, NO franchise fee for the new owner. Located in a lovely family-centered, residential area with many public schools in close proximity, so plenty of opportunity to get more students.

If you were to start your own school from scratch, it would likely be over 2,000,000円 for a …continue reading

    

Share Your Favorite Memories of Japan on Social Media and Win ¥100,000 in JNTO Travel Vouchers

Source: Gaijin Pot

Foreign nationals living in Japan could be forgiven for feeling a little stir crazy right now. With travel restrictions in place for many countries—and with Japan’s own controls limiting tourist entry—it can be an especially frustrating time for those wanting to travel and share their experiences with loved ones.

To feed that wanderlust—and recapture those feelings of excitement and wonder on your visits to Japan—the Japan National Tourist Organization (JNTO) has a new promotional travel campaign on social media. They’d like current and former foreign residents of Japan to participate—and even people who have recently visited—by sharing some of the amazing experiences they’ve had traveling in the country and getting their friends and family excited to visit their chosen destinations once the coronavirus pandemic has eased.

The JNTO is calling the theme of the campaign: “#MyOwnPersonalJapan: Sceneries to see and things to experience with your loved ones.” It was created for non-Japanese people who have experienced living here to share their personal experiences of Japan’s many charms to social media. Selected winners can receive up to ¥100,000 in domestic travel vouchers to help them on their next travels in Japan.

To enter, entrants can post their favorite places in Japan they’d like to see and experience with loved ones using the hashtags #MyOwnPersonalJapan and #visitjapanjpThese can be any locations they wish to revisit or activities to re-experience using photos and/or videos taken during a previous trip. Posting them to Instagram and/or Facebook with the selected hashtags will automatically make them eligible for a chance to win.

Only current or former foreign residents with proof of a designated address in Japan may enter. For more details regarding participation in the #MyOwnPersonalJapan social media campaign, please see below.

Going Freelance in Japan

This week we continue the 10-week leaving Japan special with the tale of me making the jump from ALT work to 100% freelance. It was scary, (and frankly still is scary), but I’ve managed to avoid homelessness for 6 years so hopefully I can keep it going. Maybe you can too.
