Kobe and Surroundings
Kobe is a satellite city of nearby Osaka, wedged between the sea and stunning Rokko mountain range. Known as the 'heart' of TEFL and ESL in Japan, it's the perfect place to launch your English teaching career.
The city has a long history of trade - the port was first used in the 8th century to import goods from China. Since then, it's become the gateway to the rest of the country, and is easily accessible from Kyoto and Nara. It is connected to the rest of the country by the super-speed bullet train.
The area features ancient temples, endless wilderness with hiking trails and hot springs, and the modern central restaurant and nightlife districts that Japan is famous for.
