Hello everyone, this is Sampei from ASIA to JAPAN.
Tokyo is an amazing city, what with all the breath-taking skyscrapers that graze the edges of clouds and the endless streams of departmental stores where you can shop till you literally drop. Still, the metropolis can get a little overwhelming at times with its fast pace of life, and there are certainly moments where people wish they could a break from the rush of it all. Thankfully, located near Tokyo are several beautiful places that offer great destinations for a day trip, or higaeri (日帰り) as it is called in Japanese. One of these places is the Nikko (日光), a place rich in both history and beautiful landscapes.
Japan is a country renowned for its technological advances (they even have robot restaurants), so one can be forgiven for thinking that going cashless is the way to go in the metropolis city of Tokyo. Reality paints a different picture, however, and you would find yourself in a pinch if you tried to survive a day without any cash on hand. Japan is still very much a cash country, and there are many stores with signs saying ‘No credit cards. Cash only.’
We’ve just concluded Study Go Work JAPAN (Aug 2019)! It was an exciting journey for our 40 participants who flew from their home countries to Japan to take part in our interview fair held from 18th to the 23rd August 2019. Most were first-timers for our event, but there were several second-timers (who managed to secure a job offer this round!).
First of all, thanks for coming into our website and showing interest in working in Japan. Many of you may wonder, why are we doing this? And what exactly is Study Go Work JAPAN?
