[look back at the main section 5.2 - it's got a little on this]

editor@ohayosensei.com (Lynn Cullivan) writes a semi-weekly electronic
newsletter called O-hayo-Sensei dealing with English teaching jobs in
Japan. It includes job listings, guidelines on job applications and
resumes, and even cheapest airfare to Japan. You may want to go
through the newsgroup for the latest posting. The URL is

Japan is known for being relatively easy to find good paying English
teaching jobs with few qualifications. That's the reputation, but it's
not nearly as true now as it was several years ago. There are many
English schools in Japan, and many of them still hire native English
speakers, but the good ones--and "good" means both the quality of
their teaching and how they treat their employees--are much more
likely to require that their employees have experience or even some
credential in teaching ESL. Freelancing is possible, but getting
established is difficult. Note that freelancing on a tourist visa is
illegal, and to get a working visa, you need a sponsor--usually an
employer, but friends or relatives are possible.
The bottom line is that it's not as easy as it once was.
