・ Work at public junior high school, elementary school, and or kindergarten from Monday to Friday with hours varying between 8:00am and 4:30pm, but tending more towards 8:30am to 4:15pm.
・ The salary will depend on the position, as well as location, qualifications, teaching experience and Japanese language skills and as such, will range between 210,000 and 250,000 yen per month, which equates to 2,446,500 yen to 3,000,000 yen per full contracted year. A stable monthly salary will be set, which is not a daily pay system.
・ We pay a capped monthly transportation allowance that will vary depending on work conditions. This is paid ON TOP OF THE SALARY, not included as part of it.

・ We have the flexibility to allow paid leave to be used for sick days and on short notice.
・ We can handle all visa related issues on your behalf at the immigration office so there is no need for you to take time off to be there.
・ We enrol our employees in the company's social insurance system, including subsidised health insurance and pension, where required. Otherwise, we will be there to help you register at the city hall and enrol in the National Health Insurance and National Pension systems and for any other help you need.
・ We will pay a full and not pro-rated salary for months with school holidays, such as April, July, December, January & March, while we guarantee at least 65% of the regular salary for August during the long summer vacation. We do not force our employees to take a pay cut in other months to get paid for August. Of course, those that work a full schedule in August get paid a full salary then too.
