Borderlink, Inc. is now hiring for Assistant Language Teacher (ALT) positions in Aizuwakamatsu City, Fukushima Prefecture. These positions will start from April 2024, but we are accepting applications immediately. If you are looking to relocate to the Aizuwakamatsu area, we can assist you. Please read on for more information.

Bordered to the east by the great Lake Inawashiro, the city of Aizuwakamatsu is located in central Fukushima and offers a treasure trove of historical and cultural sites of interest. Once the site of the famous Battle of Aizu, the city features a castle (Tsuruga-Jo) with grounds dating back to the 14th century. Other things to see include the Oyaku-en medicinal herb gardens, two hot spring resorts, numerous samurai-era locales, and many annual festivals including the Aizu Festival and Sakura Festival. A local commercial center, Aizuwakamatsu is the headquarters of many local television networks in Fukushima, and the city is famous for its sake brewing and lacquerware. Those living in Aizuwakamatsu will also want to sample the local cuisine, including the city’s own soba noodles and sauce-katsudon. For an exciting mix of urban comfort and rural charm, Aizuwakamatsu is an outstanding place to teach this year!
