Welcome to our latest media addition - Japanese videos. In our never ending battle to shed some light on what it is to be an English teacher in Japan, we’ve begun listing videos related to living and earning your bread and butter in the land of rice and honey.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video clip has got to be worth at least 1000 times more.
Know of a cool video on teaching in Japan that you would like to recommend?
Let our ever growing audience see it. Kick us the url or embed code to it on the form below and we’ll post it.
Plus we’ll lavish piles of praise on you for your generosity. (Nothing lewd, crude or nude please.) Note: in our Japanese video page we've made an effort to cut out videos that are obvious Japan bashing, or Japan praising to the point of nauseousness. Also videos where hosts attempt to leverage the Youtube platform to become a super star in their own minds don't make the cut. The point is maximum info. delivery in the minimum amount of time to serve you the visitor.

Assistant Language Teacher Video
Although this video is a bit on the long side. It’s damn near a must see for anyone wanting to see the nitty-gritty of everyday life in Japan. Straightforward, highly informative and best of all humorous. Hats off to Matt Saunders for his excellent creation. It all takes place in the city of Oita, about a 90 minute flight south west of Tokyo, on Kyushu island.
Japanese Junior High School Video
A nice inside look at typical students one might find in any high school in Japan. “This is what happens when an ALT grabs the camera.”
Another Assistant Language Teacher Video
This Japanese video starts off on the wacky side, that's for sure. But shortly thereafter gives a fairly rare glimpse of the actual office environment that a typical ALT will find him or herself in. A fairly comprehensive look at a typical day an ALT faces to earn his paycheck mixed with a bit of show-boating and humor.
