If English lessons are one of your main sources of income why are you offering such a joke of a salary? I spend more than that on imported cheeses every month.

That sounds awesome. I spent a few days in Hakodate and I really liked the city a lot. (Much more than I was expecting. Almost requested it on my JET app even.) It kind of reminded me of some cities in Oregon. Charmingly dilapidated in some areas, interesting history, laid back, kinda hip. If I was in Japan, this is the kind of job opening I'd be hoping to see come up. I'm sure for the right person this will be a good gig. Good luck.
