【About Hikone City, Shiga (滋賀県彦根市)】
Hikone is a cozy city full of culture and history situated on the edge of Lake Biwa, Japan's largest freshwater lake. It is home to the famous Hikone castle, one of the very few Japanese castles designated as national treasures. There's plenty to explore around the city, while nearby sites of interest in the surrounding area include Mt. Ibuki and Sekigahara. Those with an interest in Japanese history will love working in Hikone. Furthermore, travelers keen to see other parts of Japan will find it a convenient home base, as there is ready access to nearby cities such as Nagahama and Maibara. A weekend trip to Osaka/Kyoto to the west or Nagoya to the east is a realistic (and affordable) reality for those living in Hikone.

>>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.

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.
