English schools in Japan
Berkeley House Language Center prides itself on being one of Japan's premier language schools. We provide top-notch foreign language education to a large number of Japan's blue-chip corporations, government agencies, schools and private individuals.
Centrally located in upscale Chiyoda ward, Ichigaya, offers an ideal work setting in a leafy residential and commercial area. The streets are alive with students coming and going to Sophia University in nearby Yoyogi and professionals heading to NHK, Sony Music, and other top companies in Japan. As a teacher at Berkeley House Language Center, you can take advantage of the school's prime location and enjoy the time between classes. You can have a leisurely lunch in one of the many restaurants, which mostly have Japanese and Italian menus, have a quick cappuccino in a bustling cafe, or just explore the area and see what you find. (For instance, a short walk up the street from Ichigaya station, will bring you to Yasukuni Shrine, a historic, solemn site that becomes shrouded in a blanket of lush cherry blossoms in the spring.) Ichigaya is only ten minutes away from the major shopping and business areas of Shinjuku and Shibuya, so most errands can be taken care of quite easily. The rents on apartments near Ichigaya tend to be high, so most teachers choose to live in one of the many bedroom communities outside of Tokyo. However, commuting is extremely easy as Ichigaya sits at the crossroads of the JR Sobu line and three subayway lines - the Yurakacho, Shinjuku, and Namboku lines. Ichigaya is a very convenient location to work!
