The capital of Japan and the largest city in the world, Tokyo is the place to be if you love the big city life. There is always something to do, incredible festivals to attend, museums to visit and plenty of places to eat and drink (great for practising your Japanese and meeting new people!). And for such a large metropolis, there are many areas where it can feel surprisingly quiet and tranquil.

Its world-class public transport system will take you anywhere you want to go in the city, from the dazzling lights of Shinjuku to the serene mountain ranges in Okutama. Or, go a bit farther afield and make day trips to the famous Mt Fuji, the hot springs of Hakone or the sacred temples of Nikko. The possibilities for experiencing Japanese life, culture, entertainment, history, travel and food are limitless when you live in Tokyo.

Tokyo is also home to our largest selection of Japanese language schools so you’re bound to find one that fits your needs and goals. You’ll find opportunities to work part-time while studying and once you’re finished with language school, you’ll be well-positioned to continue with higher education or find full-time employment in Japan.

Yokohama is Japan’s second-largest city by population and just a stone’s throw away from Tokyo. It was the first port to open up to foreign trade after Japan ended its period of isolation and as such, it grew up with strong Western and Chinese influences.

Its proximity to Tokyo means Yokohama is the perfect place for those who prefer to live in a more laid-back city, but still be within reach of all the craziness and intensity that Tokyo can offer. Don’t think you’ll be bored living in Yokohama though – it hosts several significant events throughout the year including Chinese New Year celebrations, the Pikachu Festival, one of Japan’s largest jazz festivals, Oktoberfest and a Christmas market. Its streets are also full of fantastic eateries, cafes and bars.
