TEFL TESOL Course Japan - Tokyo

TEFL International now offers its world renowned TESOL Certification Course in Tokyo, Japan. Tokyo is the world's most populous metropolitan area and is the center of Japanese culture, finance, and government. Describing Tokyo to someone who has never been there is a formidable task. A bustling cosmopolitan city, Tokyo is a major transportation hub and a world economic and industrial centre. The city boasts a large number of world-class institutions of higher education, the highest concentration of universities in Japan.

Tokyo was known as Edo until 1868, when the Japanese imperial family was moved there from Kyoto. Metropolitan Tokyo is generally defined as the four prefectures of Tokyo, Saitaima, Kanagawa, and Chiba. Tokyo definitely has the power to make you go ‘Wow!’ The sense that nothing here is permanent has produced a city that renews itself at an unimaginable speed. In some parts of the city, the streets are as crowded at 3 a.m. as they are at 3 p.m. With its high-energy, visual overload, Tokyo makes even New York seem like a sleepy, laid-back town.

Tokyo remains one of the safest cities in the world, with remarkably little crime or violence. No matter how lost you may become, you would still know that people would go out of their way to help you. Hardworking, honest, and helpful to strangers, the Japanese are their country's greatest asset.
