Japan is amazing! As much as people worry about the disaster of 2011, everyone is living life as normally, and happily as possible.
I had my worries too before coming here to Tokyo to teach with a private language school, but Teach Away staff really knew their stuff - especially about any concerns stemming from the disaster.
Now, I'm getting paid to teach English in one of the premier cities of the world! Nightlife is great, it's safe here, and the Japanese people are warm and welcoming.
I'm still in touch with Teach Away, and they continue to support me during my stay here, and are even helping me coordinate my next international move.
