The goal of this site is to help ALTs teaching English in Japan.

We do this by sharing helpful, insightful, educational, or inspiring information.

We hope this is done in an open and collaborative way where everyone feels welcome to contribute.


People helping people - it's powerful stuff.

We want to help make your experience in Japan easier and better because we know teaching English in Japan can be challenging. (And not just the teaching part.)

Can I help too?

There's something rewarding about helping others. If you want to share something that made your job or life in Japan easier, please do! This is a great place to do it.
