I recently viewed your YouTube video on “How to get a job in Japan”.
I’m interested in learning more, as I am planning to move to Japan and start a new life in the land of the rising sun.
Today, most business is conducted on the internet — a highly complicated marketplace. Like most, you’re not an IT expert, and hiring a staffer is expensive. Why not hire a part-timer, to do just the one or two jobs you need? We have a wide range of experts in many areas to provide you temporary skilled help. Find out more.
Hey, hey =D
Greetings from Germany!
I found you in youtube and i really like your Videos. You should know that you live my biggest dream. *_*
I’m just 15 Years old, so i can make my wish come true,too. I am a big fan from you and I wish you good luck ^_^
Sry, for my bad english ;P
I saw your video online about how to get a job in Japan. I have been applying to places for about a month now but still haven’t had any luck. I have a degree as well as some teaching experience and have applied to at least 50 places. It seems impossible to me sometimes to get a job in Japan but your video inspired me once again and I found your resume and cover letter to be very useful. I’m going to try and model mine similar to those. I’m always open to advice so feel free to shoot me an email if you have time.
I’ve seen your youtube video and I’m currently applying for an ALT in Japan.
I would like to know if the Schools that post the ads and highlight the point to be living in Japan is an issue to consider, or if I apply they will consider my CV anyway? Cause I’m not living in Japan, nor do I have a Working Visa….
Waiting for your comments,
Thanks and keep up the good work!
Hi Andrew Martson,
thanks for your new photos about beautiful Nara
I had been there last summer, too…it was great to feed the deers

Hi Andy! I’m Kaz who live in Kitakyushu. I’ve seen one of your video on youtube and wanted to say hi.
During your stay in Kitakyushu, if you need a ride to see around, I can take you wherever you want, inside and around the city…Only if you are interested, though.
The reason why I’m offering you is that I want to brush my rusty English up again by having a conversation with you.
By the way, I’m straight and I’m not hitting on you…so don’t worry.
Also, if you already have some friends to drive you around, you can ignore this message.
Let me know if you are interested. Awaiting your reply on e-mail.

Good evening. Andrew
It is a person who talked today of the Wakamatsu high school.
I read the homepage and the blog.
It is only a very wonderful design.
Please acquire new conception power in the life of Japan in the future and invent a wonderful work.
I must say that I enjoy your videos, photos and writings - it’s an entertaining sort, those.
I’m glad to see you’re still alive and kicking - stay classy.
Ian!! Dude, I am honored by the non-athletic shout out. Me and Barak eh? Who would’ve thought… most likely not him seeing as he’s never even heard my name.
Somewhere out there is a ticket to Japan with your name on it. Your goal this year is to find it.
Love and Peace,
This is my first blog entry ever. I had to do it for my boy Andy Marston who is the bravest white boy I know. He is my non-athletic hero of the 21st century (not including Barack Obama). Andy keep up the hardwork and you’re in my prayers my friend.. Holla back son.
Haha. Thanks, for the comment. Hope you keep up. Are you in the area?
Just found your blog when I was searching the page of Wakamatsu High and was quite amused - 2 years ago I was an exchange student at the school you’re now working! Mr. Kobayashi and the others will know about me.
If you have any questions regarding Wakakou or the life around, feel free to contact me!
I’m coming to Japan this fall, hope to see you then!
Ben from Switzerland
It’s not the Orio SunLive by chance?
Haha, yes, I admit I rounded up for the onigiri. Thanks for the tips about the Aeon breads, I was unaware. I’ve been living off the Sun Live near my apt. Thanks for the comment, the encouragement is appreciated.
Hey, I came across you while youtubing for Kitakyushu… I used to teach the Engrish there for a year, too… just wanted to say — you’re ripping people off! Onigiri is only 100 yen! Eat the shake’ (salmon) ones — bangin! Enjoy nihon and the good sweet breads at the Wakamatsu Aeon/Jusco… Stay away from the shochu! No… seriously.
Hey Mrs. Thibeault!! Thanks for your comment. So glad you found my blog.
Some tips for learning Japanese? Watch as much Japanese tv/movies/anime as you can. Although this alone won’t teach you, combined with intense vocab and conjugation study it helps a lot with knowing how the language is used.
I look forward to hearing from the Thibeaults again!
Thanks dude. Great to hear from you and I look forward to your e-mail.
Andy - so neat to see how you are doing. When my 2 youngest wake up (it’s 10:00 am PST - in CA), I can’t wait to tell them where you are. They have always been fascinated with Asian culture. My daughter has been teaching herself Japanese for several months. Any types for the kids? Like how do you eat miso soup with chopsticks? Grab the tofu, then drink the rest or what? Your friend in some of the videos seems to know English, so that must help getting around.
What a dream! I love reading about your life in Japan. I am going to try to e-mail you later but as for now…I am praying for you buddy. Have fun teaching! ^_^
Thanks Jennie and Dave!! So glad you found my blog. It’s great to hear from you!
Praying for you in your Big Adventure… God Bless
(sending a big hug)
Hey Andy! Was going thru ur blog. interesting Man! I moved into Tokyo about a month back. Haha! I am in that survival phase here, like u’d mentioned.
Thought it’d be cool if we can meet up.
And Yeah! All the best for the Job!
Congrats on the job interview, Marston. Hope everything turns out well for you.
If you don’t get the job, I can only guess it’s because you don’t have sweet shades like the other 2 guys.
Andy! I hope that you are having a great time so far! I saw that you now know how to say the colors That’s always important! I look forward to seeing what else life brings you on the other side of the world!
dude, this is what bv is about right here. glad to hear from you.
i can only assume you’re asking me how many hours i could watch japanese high school drama programs before i decided to cry myself to sleep due to the overwhelming emotion pulsing through my body…
the answer is 11.
MARSTON!!! of course i’m gonna keep up w/ this, gotta c how you continue defying death since 1986
Your blog is awesome! I really hope you are enjoying your time in Japan. My only question is….how many hours different is it between there and good ole Indiana?
Wow! Awesome pictures and blog description. The video is fun to watch. We’ll pick up fresh haddock tomorrow for chowder. Travel safe.
Mom and Dad
Ya, someone who could probably benefit from some new equipment in the near future.
Nice blog site! Look forward to keeping up with you. Hope the camera and the Nokia things straighten out.
Nice photo at the finish line…some professional photographer took it?
