Including Japanese-text ones if anyone knows any. Any and all suggestions appreciated!

OhayouSensei. The local papers if your in country. Recruiting agencies.


OhayouSensei + experience = Job in less than a month. It can be done.

Those three right there along with some elbow grease will get you a job.

Thanks very much! I remember also vaguely seeing a website that advertised high school teaching jobs here, aimed at established teachers. Some of the advertisements may have been in Japanese. Any ideas? Thanks again for your help!

No problem. Three questions

1. Are you in country?


2. Do you read Japanese fluently?


3. What is your education?

1. Yup.

2. Somewhere between N2 and N1 level.

3. Master's in American Literature.

Well you just made this easy..


I don't know what the site for high school is you were needing. However, OhayouSensei and Gaijinpot you were already using both have positions for that level if that's what you want. Since you have a Master's degree, you can teach at a university. This simply means you will have more hats to throw your name in, since you can read Japanese. Honestly, as long as you have a nice suit, and can spit a decent game you should be able to find a job within a few weeks in a city center like Tokyo or Osaka. Look for a company that can sponsor your visa immediately and tell them first thing.
