【About Ayabe City (京都府綾部市)】
Situated among the mountains of northwest Kyoto, Ayabe is a city with much to offer, from hot springs, ancient temples to an extensive rose garden. The traditional culture and cuisine of the "mountain dweller" lifestyle comes alive in this area, and in the summer fireflies are easily visible throughout the city. Ayabe's location affords one easy access to nearby Fukuchiyama Castle, as well as the northern coast of Japan. With a little time and a scenic train (or car) ride north, one can even visit Amanohashidate, one of Japan's most incredible natural wonders. This area's location also means housing prices are reasonable, and living in a smaller city like Ayabe leads to a more laid back and comfortable lifestyle.

【About ALT Work】
As an ALT, you would be responsible for co-teaching with Japanese teachers, making activities and materials to facilitate English language instruction. You will also make the language “real” by interacting with students throughout the day to help them actively apply what they learn in class. The ideal candidate is flexible with their teaching style and wants to make a positive impact on the lives of the students. It’s perfect for those seeking a stable schedule and further experience in the classroom. ALTs will be provided a yearly calendar which will help manage their other commitments.
