Ganbatte is an amazing book that went above and beyond my expectations. I bought this book because I want to, eventually, go and teach English in Japan. I have been to Japan multiple times in the past and needed some extra information on how to find jobs and settle down in the country when I, eventually, move there. I read through this book and found that it's a great book for the novice, who knows nothing at all about Japan, but lacks the useful information for people who have been or knows about the Japanese culture.

Have you ever thought about becoming an English teacher in Japan? .

Have you ever thought about becoming an English teacher in Japan? Do you ever get tired of a friend who has done that and boasts persistently about it and thought, ‘heck, I could do that!' but find yourself balking at the last minute? Or are you all hyped up but have no idea as how to start your ‘Asian adventure'? . How much would you earn as an English teacher? Is there a market for foreign teachers? How is the weather and seasonal changes like in Japan? What sort of clothes should you pack?

Or How to Become an English Teacher in Japan. Ganbatte is an amazing book that went above and beyond my expectations.

English is increasingly becoming a mandatory part of the school . Japan has one of the lowest crime rates in the world, and they would like to keep it that way.

The requirements to teach English in Japan are essentially the requirements to get one of these two visas, because if you can’t get one, you’re out of luck. So, what do you need to get one of these two visas? You need to have a degree.

My book, Ganbatte Means Go For I. .or How to Become an English Teacher in Japan, came under fire from some critics for not devoting more time and space to using a recruiter as a way to for find work in Japan

My book, Ganbatte Means Go For I.or How to Become an English Teacher in Japan, came under fire from some critics for not devoting more time and space to using a recruiter as a way to for find work in Japan. And there is a very good reason why this is so: I did not find my job in Japan that way, so I have no firsthand experience in that realm, and I have heard a few stories from those who did. So I downplayed that element in my book and focused on the method that worked for me. I did some stateside outreach before I left for Japan and looked for a job once I got there.

Ganbatte is an amazing book that went above and beyond my expectations. I thought "This book looks so thin, there's no way it can cover what I need to know" but it absolutely does!

It has a lot resources and information, including:
Tons of websites
Hotels
ESL/Teaching ideas and resources
Preparing mentally, physically, and emotionally 1 year to 1 day ahead
Japan's culture, weather, attractions, ups and downs by area
Different work opportunities and how to find them
How to do well with your resume and interview
How to prepare yourself for living in Japan
Tidbits of information on etiquette, tradition, language, history, geography, etc.

This book is well-organized, well-written, includes sections for your notes, has a glossary of Japanese-romaji terms, and has a webliography/bibliography at the bank.

This book is PACKED. Definitely a great buy and well worth the price!
I recommend it to anyone considering working to Japan long or short term, or anyone planning on living there long term for any other reason.

I just got this book today and I have already read through 100 pages of it. It is so helpful and so easy to read you can't help from being immersed in it. If you are someone who really wants to teach English in Japan then this is the book for you. This book spells out every step that you need to take to get there. If you follow what this book says then you will definitely get there. This book takes all of the frustration and aggravation of getting a teaching job in Japan and makes it concise and easy to understand. This book is a must have.

Also, if you are worried about the age of the book. DON'T. It is almost as if it was written yesterday. Almost every website and source mentioned in the book is still in use today and still extremely helpful. There are a couple things that are outdated in this book but in comparison with the vast amount of helpful knowledge you won't care about whether or not 1 out of 100 websites listed isn't working anymore.

I'm not going to add more than what previous reviewers have already said other than an update on how well the book holds up 8 years after publication.

-There's very little emphasis on the internet, obviously since it wasn't as widely available/necessary back then.

-Virtually no information on how to get/use a cell phone in Japan- again just the way society evolved.

The book is well written, well balanced, and a great overview of what is necessary for moving/working in Japan. No corny or annoying text that many other books tend to have. Very refreshing.

This book is amazing! It has everything you would ever need to know or think to ask. It has all kinds of helpful tips and even breaks down what you need to do month by month. I loved it. I hope to reach my goals in Japan thanks to this author.

This is a book about the pros and cons about living overseas and how to become an English teachers overseas. Some good tips. Not an outstanding guide, but helpful.

I didn't go for it. Maybe I just need to read it again?

I bought this book because I want to, eventually, go and teach English in Japan. I have been to Japan multiple times in the past and needed some extra information on how to find jobs and settle down in the country when I, eventually, move there. I read through this book and found that it's a great book for the novice, who knows nothing at all about Japan, but lacks the useful information for people who have been or knows about the Japanese culture.

The author addressed the culture shock part quite well, talking about how different the culture of Japan is from the United States. I especially like it when she said that you'll have to be prepared to eat whatever that is presented to you without knowing what exactly is the content inside. This is so true, because the Asian culture is just not used to telling you every small ingredient in a dish (or your medication).

However, the book seemed to have focused way too much on the culture shock issue that many important points of how to settle down and such have been missed. For example, the author did talk about finding apartments, provided a list of documents that one should bring when looking at apartments, and the questions one should ask the landlord. But she fails to mention what one should do when they like the apartment. Should they present the landlord with the key money right away? Are there anything that is done differently in the process of securing the apartment in Japan than in the US?

The author did provide a list of websites that could be very useful to the reader in finding more information about the move to Japan on the varies subjects though.

I would recommend this book to the complete novice, who knows nothing whatsoever about Japan and the Japanese culture (although it beats me why one would want to go to a country where they know absolutely nothing about). However, to those who have been exposed to the culture, I'd say, save your money and search for information on the web.
A really awesome book! very informative and I feel like i'm ready for the transition into becoming an English teacher in Japan.
