Thanks! Read up as much as you can about Japan. Not just history, read about cultural norms etc. There are a few Teaching English exchange programmes but I think the JET programme is a great way to get here. You can always do one to two years (or more) and then transfer to another programme or a private teaching job. Keep looking at blogs, ask questions etc. You’ll never be fully prepared for what you’ll experience here but do as much research as you can. There is so much info to share but if you have specific questions I may be able to answer them.
